Started when the first pandemic confinement hit, this is content that celebrates my past and informs a fresh vision forward. I have a fascination for subcultures, specially those with a close-knit relationship with leftfield and challenging music, so music does take center stage here. Glad if it resonates with you in some way and you discover something new here, in which case you should explore more and support the artists. Moving between London and Porto. Curated by Jorge Sampaio.

Back in early 2008 I had the pleasure of being in PR meetings with the English band while working for a London based fashion brand. Fair to say that at the time I had all but lost my love for post-rock à la Mogwai or Explosions in the Sky... and interest in the genre was anchored solely on Godspeed You! Black Emperor or This Will Destroy You.. During those times I was into the more challenging sonic scapes of a then formidable rise in sludge and other atmospheric extremes (think Boris, Nadja, A Storm of Light, Russian Circles...) and I just couldn't touch it. But when listening to this album for the first time, it hit me that the band sounded like one of my all time favourite bands of the 80's: And Also The Trees. And I gave in.
