The Minimal Sounds of Equinoxious - An Interview

Cold wave, minimal sounds diretamente da Cidade do México o Equinoxious impressiona e impressiona muito.

Na realidade Equinoxious é igual a Rogelio Serrano, o cara que cria toda a concepcão do Equinoxious, música pra pista feita pra dancar em algum porão trevoso e esfumacado.

O 7¨recém lancado no inicio desse ano Astros Prometidos tem um capricho gráfico absurdo, vinilzinho branco e tudo mais, sem contar que na real tudo que o amigo Rogelio põe a mão vira ouro.

Minimal wave at the top.
