João Alegria - Vertical (2011-2021) out now
"Vertical" is an anthological work around the admirable work by João Alegria – a guitarist almost always in the shadows, but absolutely permanent in any musical movements that have been seen in Lisbon in the past decade. This is a voyage in the dead of night, on the back of a guitar and its sonic possibilities.
Three long songs divided by as many records, purposely rethought, reordered semi-chronologically, in a logic of deep listening. Sonic ecstasy punctuated by long drones and introspective landscapes, with an intrinsic strongly earthly dimension.
