Event description

Description

Lisbon’s Beautify Junkyards effortlessly blend their love of English Acid Folk and Brazilian Tropicalia in a collection of songs that conjure up a warm and verdant faerie world. Delicate acoustic guitars evoke an autumnal England suffused with Iberian heat by other-worldly voices; the ethereal lilt of João Branco Kyron and the warm languor of Rita Vian. The production is tempered with a haunted electronic palette that anchors the band squarely in the world of Ghost Box. Their sound is further enhanced by newest member Helena Espvall ( formerly of Espers) on guitar and cello. With João Moreira on acoustic guitar and synth, Sergue Ra on bass and Antonio Watts on drums they are altogether an astonishingly talented group of people.

“Anything but invisible, it’s a bewitching album that you’ll warm to immediately.”
Electronic Sound

“Deep in the woods glows a masterpiece from Beautify Junkyards.”
Prog Magazine

“Atmospheric, immersive, and arcane, The Invisible World Of Beautify Junkyards is a record out of time”
Shindig

“…a beautifully-packaged helping of 21st century acid-folk at its headiest.”
Record Collector

Sharron Kraus
Sharron Kraus is a singer of folk songs, a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose solo work and collaborations offer a dark and subversive take on traditional music. As well as drawing on the folk traditions of England and Appalachia, her music is influenced by gothic literature, surrealism, myth and magick. Her songs tell intricate tales of rootless souls, dark secrets and earthly joys, the lyrics plucked as sonorously as her acoustic guitar.

Antique Doll
'...haunting female/male vocal harmonies that recall eerie '70s kids TV shows like Children of the Stones and The Owl Service as much as they do Donovan, Vashti Bunyan or The Wicker Man soundtrack...' Shindig Magazine.
