“Showcasing each of the band’s distinct nuances, the debut AGF release proves that dUASsEMIcOLCHEIASiNVERTIDAS is one of Portugal’s most outstanding and unusual groups. Stretching from ecstatic overlapping saxophone to electrifying synth madness, from the jazzy balance of bass and drums to fierce guitar noise, these convulsing sounds are meant to take form right when your state of confusion begins. Of course, the group’s line-up would be incomplete without the presence of Sorrisoemeio - DSCI’s performative anti-frontman - beating and cranking unknown stuff out of a suitcase. Recorded in the old “Cinema Nimas” in Lisbon, each track on the tape was improvised especially for this release, except for the track “Anagrama” which has become a cornerstone for the band’s live sets. Boxed in a wooden case, this is a tape you don’t want to miss!”
