David Fonseca live and on video (PT)
For some, he's an icon on the Portuguese pop scene. For others, he's someone they love to hate.

On Music@PL.PT we have David Fonseca as one of the best pop artists in Portugal, alongside with The Weatherman and Gomo.

Founder of Silence 4, one of the most sucessful pop bands in Portugal, with 2 records released on the market, he soon followed his own path, solo.

Sing Me Something New, his first solo album, came out on the year of 2003. Someone That Cannot Love and The 80’s were some of the best tracks to come out of this album.

Our Heart Will Beat As One, released last year, was his second album. Here we saw him breaking the chains with his previous works, coming up with some of the best pop songs to be released in Portugal. Fluent voices, beautiful choirs, delicate pop melodies are a trademark from Our Heart Will Beat As One. Songs like Who Are U?, Our Hearts Will Beat As One and Hold Still are some of the tracks we recommend from his second album.

On the 29th of June he'll be playing live at Casino Estoril, on Du'Arte Garden. The concert is for free, so do not loose this chance in case you're close by.

To know more about David Fonseca, please check his MySpace or his website. On both of them you can find several tracks on the listening post.

We leave you here now with the video for Hold Still.

Czerwiec '56 (PL)

Czerwiec 1956. June 1956, Poznan, Poland.

50 years ago, it all began here. An important move against communism. An important step towards freedom and democracy. An important example for other cities and neighbour countries.

Several perished but hope was reborn. Since then, it was never the same........

On the occasion of it's 50th anniversary, Owal and Mezo recorded this track.

Music@PL.PT plays its hommage to the heroes of Czerwiec '56.

Suing the Hand that Feeds You - A general view over music nowadays
Just read recently, on Future of Music Book, an article on music sharing.

I agree partially with it, as for me, sharing music (some tracks and not complete albums) is a good oportunity to promote bands and artists; to take their music where normally a label can't get.

Here is part of the article.

"Terry McBride, CEO of Vancouver-based record label and management company Nettwerk Music Group, offered to pay the legal bills of David Greubel, a Texas father of four who the RIAA has targeted with a suit for illegal file sharing. McBride contends that the RIAA's suits against music fans are "killing our future." Here, he explains why.

The passionate message of music is in the magic of the song. The more it is consumed, the more it nourishes. Music is ubiquitous; it is a utility like water. It is not a pair of pants, and as such, we need to stop treating music like a product that needs to be controlled.........."

The beat according to Quantifier (PL)

Once again, Wroclaw presents us with an interesting proposal. Once again, electronic music.

Quantifier is a music producer coming from Wroclaw. Recently he released Trippy Eve, on BeatPick, an EP that mirrors his ability to combine jazzy tunes, atmospherical synths, angelic chorus, broken beats, downtempo and soundtrack moods.

With influences such as Amon Tobin, Kid Koala, Bjork, Sigur Ros or Komeda among others, it is not difficult to understand this Trippy Eve.

We recommend the tracks Viriato and Meeting at the Solar System. Taste the flavour of jazz in an electronic music afternoon.

For a limited period of time, you can download the 2 tracks above. Afterwards, his work will still be available at his MySpace and on BeatPick. Still on his MySpace, you can listen to some other tracks such as the jazzy Green Straw.

The album can be found and purchased right here.

"on the screen....." - Fisz & Emade (PL) - Nie bo nie

One of the most innovative and interesting hip-hop MC/DJ duos is back.

The brothers Fisz (MC) and Emade (DJ), alongside Kanal Audytywny and O.S.T.R., are here to show us that Polish Hip-Hop is more than a mere copy than the one coming from the US.

Jazz, break beat, funk and scratch easily become Fisz & Emade's weapons.
Last year they had one of the most interesting records released in the land of Walesa. This year though, they've got some strong candidates to argue with on the best Polish release.

Neverthelesss, Nie bo nie shows us that Fisz and Emade are still here to give us more and good music. You can download the video right here.

The Polish Americana by Gasoline (PL)

Gasoline are one of those oasis in the middle of Polish music. Their music speaks americana, blues, country, rock 'n' roll and pop. Calexico, Bob Dylan, Gordon Gano are among those that would understand it.

Since 2002 they've been enchating this part of Europe, having already supported acts such as Mark Olson, from the Jayhawks.

They are Greg Nieuwsma, on guitar and vocals; Mark Aldridge, on drum and percussion; Mark Hall, on bass and vocals and Maciek Czernecki, on guitar and vocals.

They'll be playing live in Krakow on the 22nd of June, in Krakow, at Klub Imbir, from 20h.

Discover them on their MySpace. We recommend 100 miles and El beanero.

Do not loose this chance.

Smartini (PT)

Lourenco Mendes, vocals and guitar, J. Paulo Duarte, guitar, Ricardo Costa, bass, and Patricio Ferreira, drums, are Smartini, a project that began somewhere in 2002, in Caldas das Taipas.

Loose, melodic, noisy, loud. Their world has common points to that of Sonic Youth, Pixies.

21st June - Galerias Bar Stª. Clara - Coimbra
23rd June - Be Space - Guimaraes
August - Festival Paredes de Coura

Brasil and the Gallowbrothers Band (PL)

First time I read about them, I thought it was a band from out of Poland. Didn't notice the album's name "
Legionowo" - a city on the suburbs of Warsaw.

Dominic Savio, on voice, guitars, analog synths, percusion and field recordings; T.E.R., on analog synths, electric piano, electronic, voice and field recordings; and Mirt, on trumpet, analog synths, electronic, guitars, field recordings and artworks; are responsible for an album that breathes jazz, pop, downtempo, ambient grooves.

They have so far three albums: "Wander Till Spring" (Cat Sun), "The Band Plays On, The Dunes Move On (Caught Me with Your Eyes Closed)" (Last Visible Dog) and last, but not least, "Legionowo" (MonotypeRec).

Check some of their music on their Myspace and on their personal webpage.

Novika (PL)

My first contact with Polish music was with Novika's compilation "feat. Novika". Here, Novika came up with a cd with such names as Futro, Smolik, Fisz, 15 Minut Projekt among many others.

Later on, another compilation was released, this time a double album with some of the newest and most interesting music to come out of Poland.

Apart from being one the persons doing most for Polish music, she's also working as a DJ, producer, radio DJ (at Radio Bis,
every Wednesday) and of course with the collective Beats Friendly which released a double cd compilation this year.

Her sound can be defined as the result of combining house, electro, broken beats, drum 'n' bass sounds.

Recently she released her first vinyl, "Finally EP", together with producers Jacek Sienkiewicz, Agim & Espace, CLS + Wax and Innocent Sorcerers, where you can find bands like M.I.A., Fat Freddys Drop, Jamie Lidell, Pati Yang, among many others. The EP can be bought right here.

In order to listen to it, please visit her MySpace or We stronly recommend the tracks Hate/Love and Finally.

On its 100th post, Music@PL.PT presents ..........

Celebrating Germany's 2006 Football World Cup and Music@PL.PT's 100th post, we decided to release the first Music@PL.PT compilation. This compilation though, is only going to be available for a limited period of time.

Getting ready for the games to come, Music@PL.PT prepared its team as well. With players available from Angola, Brazil, Poland and Portugal, we decided to play with an attacking 4-2-4 formation.

The Weatherman (PT), Conjunto Ngonguenha (ANG), Dead Combo (PT), Prince Wadada (ANG/PT), Bonde de Role (BR), Seu Jorge (BR), Marisa Monte (BR), Myslovitz (PL), Kanal Audytywny (PL), X-Wife (PT) and Cool Kids of Death (PL) are the 11 players choosen to start the championship. Our coach, Poesia e Percussao (PT), also took with him Muzykoterapia (PL) for the medical department and 12 other players.

As you can imagine, our strickers are ready to go and score. The furious rock and screaming guitars of Coold Kids of Death, X-Wife, The Vicious 5, the electronic sounds of U-Clic, the bluesy rock'n'roll of The Legendary Tiger Man are sure to guarantee us a lot of celebration.

Backed up by the original hip-hop, the beats and nu-jazz of Kanal Audytywny and O.S.T.R., the magical combination of DJ Nel Assassin's scratch with Sam The Kid & Sagas' hip-hop, the pop and melodic rock of Myslovitz, the electronic pop of Cindy Kat.

On the mid-field, the electronic pop dreams of Pati Yang and Maria Peszek will control the game easily, whereas Marisa Monte and Seu Jorge with their samba pop will enchant crowds while dancing and dribbling with the ball all the way to the goal.

The reggae and dub of Prince Wadada will manage with any pressure on the defensive area. Most likely, everyone will forget the game and start dancing.
Dead Combo with their western spaggethi tales, groovy bass and hypnotic guitar, alongside with Stealpot's coolness, funky, jazzy sax will command all the operations on the back sector.
On the left side everything's under control with Bonde de Role and their favela funk, hip-hop & 80's rock sampling; with Spartak! and the 80's electronic synth pop and the guitar loops. On the right side, Le Trio Infernal's pace, beat and speech and Conjunto Ngonguenha's hip-hop stories, sunny African reggae and the never ending good mood.

The goals are kept by the dreamy pop of The Weatherman and the dark, jazzy electronic pop of Grzegorz Nawrocki & Jacek Olter.

For the entire list, and respective link, please check the list bellow.

01 - The Weatherman (PT) - I Sustain

"on the screen....." - Swietliki i Linda- Filandia (PL)

This week a new video. Again, the choice falls on a Polish band.

is the band of Marcin Swietlicki, poet and author of several books. For this record, and who knows if for the next ones, they invited the actor Boguslaw Linda. This choice couldn't have been better. His voice, as it can be heard on "Filandia", takes us to the universe of Leonard Cohen and of The Tindersticks, where he talks slowly, sadly, as if words were wrapped in silk.

This time, from the 2005 Swietliki i Linda's album "Las Putas Melancolicas", we've choosen the video "Filandia".

Muzykoterapia - The cure is here (PL)

I've found my favourite Polish album of 2006 so far. The self-titled debut album by Muzykoterapia is a pearl, hidden in those 12 tracks and 50 minutes.

Jazz music has always been quite important on the Polish musical scene. During several years, this was one of the most prolific music genres.

Today, it reflects on some of the most interesting bands to come out of this country. Skalpel, Fisz, OSTR, Stealpot, among many others, have somehow created a unique sound by mixing several other genres with jazz.

Now Muzykoterapia are doing the same. Having released their album on Asfalt Records, home to some of the most innovative Polish projects (OSTR, Fisz or Noon), their music breathes freshness.

Iza Kowalska, on vocals, Wojtek Traczyk, on contrabass, and Dominik Trebski, on trombone and electronics, came up with an album difficult to define. Call it nu-jazz or downtempo; call it etno-swing; call retro-pop rumba; call it............whatever. You can find all this on their debut cd.

I hope that by now you already want to listen to some of their tracks. A promo mix can be downloaded right here, whereas on their MySpace, you can find 4 tracks.

The album can be bought here.

This week on 1, 2, 3...... @ MySpace
This week, Music@PL.PT goes into the world of Scratching, DJing and Hip-Hop.

We bring you 3 proposals from PL and PT. Fizyk (PL), X-Acto and Buraka Som Sistema (both PT).

Fizyk (PL)

Having released an EP, Anything Special EP, where hip-hop, ambient, electronica and drumfunk bits combine themselves, Fizyk brings us some of the newest electronic music to come out of Poland.

"....Dopey, Grumpy, Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sneezy & Sleepy.." award us with the May 2006's mix track, 'what you see is what you hear', which includes music from the likes of Goldfrapp, Boozoo Bajou, the Avalanches, Roni Size and FSOL among many others. The track list can be found here.

Check the tracks available at his MySpace, and have a look at the remix for B-52's track "Rock Lobster".

X-Acto (PT)

"Turntablism, Hip-Hop, Elektro, Funk, Trance"

X-Acto: DJing-Turntablism, SK8, Computer-Audio Production, Psy-Trance, Hip-Hop, Dama Bete's DJ; he's to release some tracks on "Literatura Subterranea Vol. 1", a Mixtape on which he colaborated with some scratches.

His tracks can put you dancing to the beat quite easily. The scratching flows smoothly, revealing an ease with the deck-boards. Interesting remix for the Beastie Boys' track "3 - The Hard Way).

Some more tunes can be found at Variedade Sonora, an album by MeK0.

On his MySpace, you can check out 7 tracks, with some of the best scratching I've heard lately.

Download 2 tracks, right here, at Music@PL.PT.

Spinozza - Last ticket (feat. DJ X-ACTO)

DJ X-ACTO - X-ACTO no prato! (Highly recom.)

Buraka Som Sistema (PT)

"We call it Progressive Kuduro... ", "Luanda meets Lisboa... wicked soundclash!".

With such definitions, how would you think they sound like?

Buraka Som Sistema takes the baile funk genre, kizomba, kuduro and mix it with lots of beats. The result? Some of the most dancable music out there.

This magic potion, carefuly handled by Riot, LilJohn (Cooltrain Crew/Enchufada) and Conductor (Conjunto Ngonguenha) is taking control of the Lisbon nights, spreading out fast, taking no prisoners.

Watch out!!!! Buraka Som Sistema will be storming out the city, live, on the 12th of June at the Popular Soundclash III, Miradouro Sta. Catarina (Adamastor), in Lisbon.

Check them, on their MySpace. We strongly recommend the 4 tracks available.
