thisquietarmy – Live in Sao Paulo (DVD)
This is the complete thisquietarmy live performance that took place at Centro Cultural Sao Paulo in Brazil on June 23rd, 2013. The concert marked the end of the TQA Brazilian tour where he performed 14 shows through May & June 2013 to promote the split LP with Sao Paulo-based band Labirinto released on Dissenso Recordings.
For this “homecoming” Brazilian gig, thisquietarmy performs a special encore with two members from Labirinto: Muriel Curi on drums/electronics & Ricardo Pereira on bass.
The DVD compiles and crossovers video footage by Claud Peer & Rodrigo Florentino with thisquietarmy’s live visuals and the live soundboard audio recording from CCSP. The whole thing was entirely edited & mastered by Eric Quach back at TQA.HQ in Montreal, Canada.
The DVD includes 4 live photographs of the performance by Daniel Moura, and the package was designed, printed, hand-cut and assembled by Eric Quach/TQA Records. The DVDs are silver/black DVD-Rs, burnt as NTSC and should work on all new DVD players and DVD-roms.
Folk music derives its origins from venerable working class traditions and its name reflects this. Notoriously difficult to define, the genre’s porous borders have helped to keep it fresh and ever relevant, with such a wide range of artists as Bob Dylan, Joanna Newsom, Nick Drake and Bonnie Prince Billy all falling somewhere within Folk’s purview.
This latest release, brought to us by the prestigious Bedroom Community can also be defined as folk music but, following in the tradition of the finest material in the genre, Puzzle Muteson’s latest full-length album throws a lot more into the pot too. Little seems to be known about the enigmatic artist based in the Isle of Wight, other than he is a singer-songwriter originally from London who has a penchant for melancholic guitar and a talent which is self-evident. Choosing to remain anonymous could be seen as an affectation to some, but so sincere are the songs within En Garde, that the lack of information on the artist forces us to focus solely on the music, which is probably for the best, since it would be foolish indeed to miss a moment of this carefully crafted masterpiece.

Neverest Songs is the alias of Margate based multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Luke Twyman, who is set to release his debut, double A-side single Paper Trumpets/Softly, Quite Softly, Quite Softly through independent label Tea At Yours.
Initially working in a humble home studio set-up, early 2005, Twyman began to harness his talent, before starting work on his debut album Small Voyages, in late 2008. Undertaking a small voyage of his own, Twyman travelled to New York to record the piano parts, with friend Rick Warren and by late 2009 twenty-four songs were complete, and the final thirteen tracks selected. Small Voyages was released as part of the Unlabel catalogue, in early 2010.
