A Thousand Hands with Sextile - An Interview

Da mesma gravadora de nomes como Odonis Odonis, Soviet Soviet, Chasms, Au.Ra entre outros, vem o endemoniado Sextile.

Um álbum de estreia que remete a um certo pós punk escuro e esquizofrênico, por vezes evocando Bauhaus em outras a própria Batcave em peso.

"A Thousand Hands" é o nome do esporro psicótico dos caras, e confesso que há tempos não ouvia nada tão, digamos, teatralmente dark sem cair pro lado gótico extremo da coisa, pelo contrário, o Sextile, pega as guitarras de Daniel Ash, e as atualiza num caldeirão moderno e ao mesmo tempo saudosista que não há como ficar imune ao poderio dos caras.

Apenas um conselho, não deixe passar o Sextile de forma alguma, e escute alto bem alto, e claro, se possível num inferninho escuro e esfumaçado cheirando bebida e outras cositas mais.
