I already knew the drummer through participation at a portuguese online music forum, and the guitarrist looked familiar from another rock project i loved, which was already seemingly extinct, Lemur, they had an awesome EP out at the, also already seemingly extinct, Merzbau, a fellow Portuguese netlabel.
I loved their gigs, they reminded me of videogame music played with a band ensemble, and so i approached the guys on both occasions to tell them their concert kicked ass and that if they wanted to put something out online i’d be happy to have it released at Enough. A few months later they sent me their latest limited edition album for online re-release: II
Although dSCi are all Portuguese, II was actually recorded in Barcelona, on their way back from a tour across Spain and France. dSCi love playing live more then anything, they are one of those true forever touring indie rock bands, playing anywhere and everywhere they can just for the sake of putting their sound out there. The moment an european tour ends, they start planning the next one. To celebrate the ending of another tour in late 2010 they sent me another EP for online re-release: I
dSCi not only plays like hell, they also randomly organize concerts and festivals in Lisbon through their collective / promoter Associação Terapêutica do Ruído. Just don’t try to figure out what genre of music they promote, because you’ll fail to pin it down, it’s just music.
In 2011 they had a tape out through a new label A Giant Fern, and once again asked me to re-release it online for free download at Enough Records. I was happy to comply.
And now in 2012 they are on tour again with another new album named 4, limited physical editions released through A Giant Fern, Experimentáculo, Another Shame, Eclectic Polpo, Fooltribe and Human Feather. Online edition promised to come out when the tour ends. Meanwhile you can already listen to it at bandcamp and check their myspace or facebook accounts for tour dates around Spain, France and Italy.
