Brazilian psych rock outfit Boogarins have released an interactive fan-fueled Minidoc, presenting 6 new songs created in a 5-day workshop in Lisbon, Portugal during the annual MIL Festival earlier this spring. The band primarily employed the use of a mobile phone to create 3 songs involving audience participation, as well as 3 songs in collaboration with established Portuguese artists -- Capitão Fausto, PAUS and The Legendary Tigerman.
During the event, 30 fans were invited to spend their Easter holiday with the band and learn about Boogarins’ studio process, including the presence of their favorite “modern lo-fi device” - the mobile phone - which was used in the production of their latest album Lá Vem a Morte, scheduled for release as a deluxe and expanded version via OAR this Friday 8/31. The video opens with the song “Sei” featuring vocals and lyrics by Carolina Caldeira, who spontaneously presented the ideas to the band right after they finished recording the 1st improvised beat of the day. Other highlights include “Viver Sonhos,” a song the band created with the Portuguese sensation, Capitão Fausto, and “Natureza Morta / Alma Fértil (Dead Nature / Fertile Soul), which was named after a tour poster Boogarins singer and songwriter, Dinho Almeida created for their UK tour with Tune-Yards earlier this year.
In addition to releasing their new video, Boogarins have also announced a stretch of European tour dates, including stops in Portugal, Spain, France, and the UK.
