Wipeout Beat are the new band of 3 veterans from the Coimbra music scene. Carlos Dias, Pedro “Calhau” Antunes and Miguel Padilha spent/are in bands such as Bunnyranch, Subway Riders, Garbage Catz, A Jigsaw, Lost Objects among others, which gave the city its well-known sound diversity.
A panoply of keyboards, 3 voices and a guitar, sounds to the dirtiest of the garage, but also to the minimal sounds of Suicide or Philip Glass, “primitive electronics” as they have already called them, all at the rhythm of an old box. – Roland CR-8000 rhythms, which makes it impossible not to stomp your foot.
Recorded and produced at Blue House Studios, in Coimbra, “Small cities big thoughts” was published in 2018 by Lux Records and is the result of a year and a half of long and fun nights, discovering, exploring and creating simple music for uncomplicated people who likes to dance/rock.
5 years after We Will Destroy Each Other, the debut album that made them known, Little Friend are back with their second album, A Substitute for Sadness.
John Almeida’s project was absent during a period in which there was a gradual deconstruction of everything that was being written and lived, until an almost complete reconstruction of the music, sound, and even the identity of the project was inevitable.
After profound changes, both personally and creatively, this album aims to reach a new sound, with more arrangements, orchestration, and a more careful production, without ever losing the goal of writing songs.
Again in a very close partnership and collaboration with their producer André Tentugal, also responsible for the arrangements and composition, Little Friend’s breakthrough single Sombre Song, which reflects the fascination with the sound frontier between the singer-songwriter aesthetic of the late 60s and the orchestration of the early 1970s, which brought darker themes to the lyrics and tried to push the limits of production.
Recorded, mixed at the Sá da Bandeira Studios, in Porto, by João Brandão, this theme gives us a sign of what will come soon. The bewildering video clip, with the intense presence of actor Tommy Luther, was also directed by André Tentugal.
