Margarida Garcia and Manuel Mota

Margarida Garcia and Manuel Mota
Earth Rundown
Sloow Tapes – CS 40

Slowly evolving daydreams of electric guitar shrouded in lo-fi reverb by Margarida Garcia and Manuel Mota. Dark, quiet and mysterious superimpositions floating and spiraling further and deeper in the distant hollow spaces of the void. Artwork by Margarida Garcia. Edition of 70 copies.

The Sloow Tapes cassette ‘Earth Rundown’ contains a concert by Portuguese guitarists Margarida Garcia and Manuel Mota, recorded in Lisbon in 2017. The two musicians, both spearheads of the Portuguese experimental scene, have known each other for many years and form a double-headed monster when playing and recording together. Earth Rundown is a slow descent into an eerie underworld full of echoes and distorted sounds. (Sea Urchin)
