Eduardo Brethauer is a journalist, writer and traveler. Author of the hilarious wine guide Vinos con Cuento. Owner and Wine Editor of Vitis Magazine. Member of the Circle of Wine Writers, La Commenda Major de Rosselló and Círculo de Cronistas Gastronómicos y de Vino de Chile. Founder of Vignadores de Carignan, a unique association of producers that reinvented a viticultural tradition of 5 centuries in Maule Valley. He doesn’t believe in scores. “They’re fuckin’ stupid”, claims. He and his brilliant collaborators are always seeking for character and identity. Their goal is to rescue and put in value wines, spirits and food treasures from forgotten corners of the world.
The postrock quintet from Santiago returns with its usual instrumental themes, adding in this second album the sound of synthesizers. Some may yawn at the monotony of some compositions, but I enjoy the breaks and progressions of proposals like Petricor. It seems like four songs in one, starting with a harmless indie until an allegorical and distorted ending.
