Gobi Bear is the alter ego of Guimarães, Portugal resident Diogo Pinto. Previously only available in physical formats, Mais Grande is Gobi Bear’s first release on Mine All Mine. While Diogo finalizes his first full-length – to be released next month – we’re happy he’s decided to visit us with this excellent free EP.
From the cheerful bells of “Summertime,” to the loneliness of “3 Feet,” to the darkness in “Lisbon,” Mais Grande is a good taste of Gobi Bear’s range as a solo artist. Grab the EP for free today, and when Diogo announces his plans for his upcoming full-length, we’ll be sure let you know where to find it!
All songs written by Diogo Pinto. Artwork by Anoik. Recorded, produced and mastered by Henrique Toscano.
For those of you who haven’t already checked out Ben Schapiro’s excellent album “617-797-5411” (stream it above or click below for more info), we’ve got another great reason to check it out. This incredibly intimate album has recently been updated to include Part II, which adds five new songs recorded this summer since the original release of the album. The album also updates a few earlier recordings. Physical copies coming soon.
“617-797-5411” is an intimate glimpse into the soul and psyche of Ben Schapiro, one of Madison’s best-loved underground musicians. Before leaving Madison for parts unknown, Ben was a staple of Madison’s house show scene, often as part of the band Dirty Jive. The album shows Ben’s skill and craftsmanship on the acoustic guitar without ever abandoning the delicacy and honesty of his poetry.
