costuma dizer-se que há sempre alguém que exprime o que queremos dizer melhor do que nós alguma vez o faríamos. ou coisa parecida. algumas palavras sobre o disco de asa irons e swaan miller (o primeiro é o senhor, a segunda a senhora, caso estejam a perguntar-se). basta ouvir dois ou três temas para pensar... "caramba, é isto mesmo!"

"
(...) I always find it odd when a record steps out so unexpectedly and appeals to my heart so unashamedly, I feel embarrassed that I don't know it already, that I haven't had time to embrace it and listen again, again and again, but there's also an excitement, and that's really the best thing about new music. These small bespoke releases (which Important seem to be so adept at rounding up) are what folk music should be about, there's no gloss, no pretension, attitude or ego, just good quality music which almost revels in subtlety and shyness. When Asa and Swaan's voices cross you just want to embrace them and thank them for treating you to music so restrained and beautiful, but in place of that you can save your embraces for others. Buy this album for a loved one, or buy it for yourself and show someone else that you really care - it's worth it. Absolute loveliness on a compact disc."

Coexistir, brega, tô aguentando, persistência de anos, vista grossa, irradiação.
Suspenso sem nunca. O tronco parte-se, migalha de tudo.
Acordo e cheiro - azarete. Visão da vida, validação.
Mão séria & olhar. Esparguete, raparigas.
Quando se guarda; pensar para lá de cada; mais cambiantes.
