Lucidalabrador is the musical moniker of Pedro Caetano Leite, a new emerging act from the vibrant scene of South-East London, who for the past year has been gradually, but surely finding new and unconventional ways of paying homage to the early 2000’s synthpop-rock acts that inspired him.
A recent Goldsmiths University graduate (Blur, James Blake); the Brazilian born composer united forces with a multi-cultured live band that originates from Germany, Italy and Czech Republic. The band now looks forward to releasing their new EP: Today Is A Good Day For Friendship, available digitally (for free).
Drawing influences from classic songwriters such as Grandaddy, Sparklehorse, Jeff Buckley, Tom Waitts as well as modern acts such as Father John Misty and Kurt Vile, Lucidalabrador’s self produced EP is a fine example of how indie is surviving the internet era.
Working as an audio engineer across different studios in London, Pedro chose to explore this interesting hybrid between using high budget studio facilities and his bedroom’s 8-track tape cassette recorder. The result is an EP with an intimate bedroom flair, which subtly integrates different environments along the way.
Lucidalabrador takes pride in belonging to a thriving music scene in southeast London, with a close family of talented artists that they invited to be a part of this project. Mastered by the talented Mikko Gordon (also Pedro’s boss) [Atoms for Peace, Squeeze, Travis], the EP counts with the collaboration of two other local musicians: Leiik in “Hurt you” and Bunki in “Yesterday Was A Good Day For Friendship”.
