*In process of stocking. 50 copies limiteed edition* "Ten years of music, almost always published on the net. Transformation is what I can think of to write. Even the rock is mutable. We carry in our bodies the traumas, the suffering. Then there's the rest. Vertical is the ascent to the heavens, and more, as I read somewhere, what cannot be said is consigned to silence." - João Alegria
A work of anthological nature around the admirable work of João Alegria - guitar player almost always in the shadows but with an absolutely perennial mark in the musical movements we could witness in Lisbon in the last decade - "Vertical" is a journey through the dead of night made at the hitchhiking of a guitar and its sonic possibilities. Three long themes divided by as many records, purposely rethought and rearranged semi-chronologically for a deep listening logic. Sonic ecstasy punctuated by long drones and introspective landscapes, with an intrinsic and markedly telluric dimension.
