 IMAGINARY AIRSHIP „Where dreams take flight“
  Sound Ghost Recordings 2007. Our rating [6/10]

Imaginary Airship inhabits a wonderfully surrealistic corner of the pop music universe, a dimension where truly anything can happen. Think of it as the indie-pop twilight zone; a place of imagination and wonder in which sampled symphonies, fuzzed out guitars and analog synthesizers glide graciously over acoustic guitar-driven pieces that are heartfelt, personal, dreamy, and inventive. Their songs … [Read full review]

 LUCETULAS „Tragol de Rova“
  Robot Radio records CD 2007. Our rating [4/10]

Lucertulas are the kind of band who might pride themselves on making what other people refer to as noise – angular multi-instrumental noise that runs free of form and throws as many spanners into the works of traditional musical formulas as possible.
