about

This album, unlike the others, started with the title. I wanted to make a colorful counterpoint of sorts to the grey atmosphere of 'Metropolis', so I settled on the name 'Agrestic', a little known but immensely sexy word. As the previous one wanted to show you how disgusted and anoyed I am by city life, this one is about conveying to you the joys of living closer to nature and away form crowds.

For a very short while I entertained the idea of making it a concept album, like I did with 'Metropolis', but discarded it almost imediately when I thought about the ridiculousness of writing lyrics about how nice it is to be around trees or skipping meadows. I quickly realized that making music for music's sake would be much more representative of those pleasures than actually describing them. As it turns out, it's much easier, at least for me, to write lyrics about stuff I hate than about stuff I love. So there you go.

about

handwrist Lisbon, Portugal

a solo musical venture that can somewhat be described by the incredibly meaningless term 'Psychedelic Jazz Rock'. for metadata purposes, though, it's great.

Track Name: The unpredictable song
the unpredictable song
who knows how far
it goes
and for how long
it will go on

or even what the hell is it supposed to be


the undescribable song
just ten forgettable chords
plus one
you will hear
after this one...

now


the unspectacular song
it makes no sense at all
ain't more
involved
just wasting your time

and it doesn't even rhyme...
