Beautify Junkyards have released their new album The Invisible World of Beautify Junkyards. It’s the band’s third album and their first for Ghost Box, following on from their Other Voices single in 2016.
The Lisbon six-piece effortlessly blend their love of English Acid Folk and Brazilian Tropicalia over fifteen tracks 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.
Stand-outs include ‘Ghost Dance’, ‘Sybil’s Dream’, ‘Manhã Tropical’, ‘Aqaurius’, ‘Cabeça-Flor’ and ‘ The Masque Of The Hidden Garden’.
Blissfully delicate and dreamlike, otherworldly compositions make this album a must listen to release.
