Cigarettes In Your Bed with Vidulgi OoyoO - An Interview

Pense em bandas cultuadas no submundo dos bons sons, o Vidulgi OoyoO é uma dessas preciosidades e se parar pra pensar que os caras tem mais de 10 anos praticando o mais puro shoegazer bem antes da explosão e resgate do estilo e mais pensar que os caras são koreanos é mais complexo de assimilar.

Aero é nome da pequena obra prima, ou como diria meu irmão Fabio Bridges um verdadeiro "pequeno clássico perdido". Ao melhor estilo shoegazer clássico o álbum viaja pela Scene That Celebrates Itself com propriedade de gente grande, é como se o disco realmente tivesse sido lançado na época clássica.

Se por algum acaso você desconhece essa preciosidade, o TBTCI facilita as coisas.
