questo è uno di quegli album che ti portano in giro. In questo caso in una bellissima città quale è Lisbona. Ma anche senza voler essere troppo poetici: metti su le cuffie e ti ritrovi lì. proprio dove volevi essere. Magnifico.
For the the eleventh volume of FRKWYS, an unrestricted series pairing contemporary artists with their influential predecessors, gifted guitar squire Steve Gunn meets roving, radiating legend Mike Cooper in Lisbon, Portugal. A tranquil interlude for these two travellers to create off-guard improvisations in their shared style of deconstructed guitar music, Cantos de Lisboa is a curious detail in the periphery of their snapshot of Portugal.

Dear Steve and John, your music is my companion for some weeks now, when I walk through the streets, when I read some books, when I’m thinking about the poor pandemic life we have. Now I need it physically, on vinyl, just to listen to it. It’s not post-rock to me, it’s avant-dream. Thank you very much. jean-michel brunet

What an album. Dark, disturbing ambient noise tracks sit uncomfortably alongside roughly gorgeous acoustic guitar pieces. Part John Fahey, part Amps for Christ, and still all its own. Anyone who can make an 18 minute noise piece feel like no time at all is a genius. Levrikon
