I've been spending time cleaning my sister's (crusty) records. She finally is getting her act together.

^ It's like a deep deep purple, the flash lighten it up. The other side has the "face" like on the cover. I think GEP have different colored labels.

^ MAGNIFICENT packaging - why does the label look purple ?? Mine are black. GEP have done a wonderful job with the pressing. More than substantial.

^ Yep, I have now enough LP's to keep me busy Wink

Quoting the bio I wrote: "Their album Hightower, released in 2015, combines several layers of spacey synthesizer, heavy drums and guitar with Post Rock, Krautrock and Stoner Rock influences, resulting in a very hypnotizing experience."
They have the full album here: http://equations.bandcamp.com/
I have to say I don't like the high-pitched vocals much though and I don't even know in what language he is singing. Thankfully the guy doesn't sing much Tongue

There's not a single wasted minute there, amazing from beginning to end. I agree, Barden's work on that album, not only with the Hammond, is really great. Nimrodel is my favourite track Big smile

^ Doing well there, Meltdowner !!
The bottom album looks cool - what's the music like ?
Mirage is always a winner, my fave Camel album, has a Canterbury flavour to much of it. Esp. regarding Barden's fuzzy, swirly Hammond. Supertwister is bliss.

That JosÚ Cid album is full of spacey Mellotron and Moog... and very groovy bass Wink If you get it on CD, get a release that has the EP 'Vida (Sons do Quotidiano)' as a bonus track. Mine unfortunately doesn't have it, and it's really great Thumbs Up

Played this one yesterday, I'm always happy to spin it: it's addictive and bad for the health... of my ears, because of the volume I play it LOL


Last week I went to a great concert of a Portuguese Space Rock band, that coincidentally was being evaluated by me and my PSIKE colleagues (soon on PA Tongue). On my way out, I stopped by the merch stand and was surprised to know that vinyl was the only physical format they were selling their album: just another proof that the music industry is changing Wink Also got a cool limited psychedelic comic book... that fits inside the LP cover, try to do that with a CD LOL

What else did Seventh do?

When I started listening to 'foreign' Prog, I was a bit apprehensive about the different languages, but I came around pretty quickly. Like you say, it's a 'sound' - another 'instrument', and it doesn't matter not understanding the lyrics, but sometimes it would be nice to know the translations, especially bands like Le Orme and Ange. There are some great voices in these bands, too.

My favourite 70's Portuguese Prog album, and it's the only one that was re-released on vinyl... I have it on CD though Wacko I don't care much for lyrics but this one is an exception: the goose bumping Mellotron with the beautiful lyrics always make me cry (in a manly way of course LOL), the genuine expression of joy and freedom Cry It was recorded right after the end of the dictatorship in 1974.

Do you know his spacey/symphonic solo album from 1978? http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=3537 The album on vinyl is quite rare and expensive unfortunately Unhappy

When listening to these albums I consider the vocals to be just another sound (or instrument as Meltdowner said) and I listen to see how that "sound" blends with the music.

To me, this conjured-up language from Vander, is just the same. And furthermore, to me it sounds like a form of, maybe, 'organised scat' - vocalisings that seem fit for the music/vision. Instead of La-la's, chickaboom's, boom-diddly-diddly-wah-wah's, we get Do-werei's and Rindu's, wehri sundi's and so forth. With the accents printed on them, they look strange on a lyric sheet, but they are just another form of syntax Vander has concocted to convey a unique concept and add to the power of the music. Once this 'barrier' is accepted (it does take time), this incredible troupe of musicians/vocalists just aim to please. This is how I perceive the whole thing anyway.
Not crazy for Portuguese? DisapproveTongue

That's probably why I don't have any problem with them, I see vocals as just another instrument, they can say whatever they like LOL

It will always rate as the lowest they can go, but there is one true winner on this album, and that is the magical Eliphas Levi. Really, this album is a compromise as far as the 80's music bizz is concerned. Vander has taken and elaborated on certain tracks from this album to recent times. Though not indicative of the true 'heart' of the band, it still contains material that Vandrr believes in, and that is a good sign. It is still deemed 'too weird' for the mainstream, yet not 'substantial' for those of us that prefer MDK's and Udu Wudu's.......
Yep, Eliphas Levi is pretty good. As a whole, there are just a lot of people here who can't stand Disco, but I quite like their unique weird Disco Tongue
