Paisiel album released today

We are thrilled to announce the ltd vinyl release by the enigmatic duo Paisiel is released today. 

The band features the exceptional talents of Portuguese drummer/percussionist and sonic sculptor João Pais Filipe and the German saxophonist Julius Gabriel.

“A rhythmic plane between Africa, techno, krautrock, and minimalism.”
“Paisiel push the boundaries of sound in all the right ways.”
“A quasi-tribal trance through the language of jazz.”
“A driving force that unites past, present and future.”
"There’s a feeling of ayahuasca and adrenaline in the veins."
“Redefining what psych is, Rocket have yet another great example with Paisiel"

The S/T three track album was originally released in 2018 as a ltd edition cassette on the great Portuguese label Lovers & Lollypops. And now Rocket Recordings are extremely proud to be releasing this unique recording on a ltd edition colour vinyl and across all digital channels.

In 2018 João Pais Filipe has also found the time to release a stunning and highly acclaimed solo album and a very exciting collaboration with fellow drummer/percussionist, and also very talented Valentina Magaletti (Tomaga/Vanishing Twin/UUUU) called CZN. And a few weeks ago João will be locking himself into the studio with GNOD to record some material together, the fruits of that will be revealed in the near future!

Paisiel are playing a Porto album launch tonight at CCOP, with support from OTRTORTO. And there are plans to bring their sonic explorations to the UK later in the year.
