2012 was the year when Beautify Junkyards started as a band, and in some ways it all happened by chance when elements of various Portuguese bands decided to make a series of retreats from the city with the aim of recording outdoor sessions on the countryside in communion with all surrounding sounds and visual atmosphere. Using a mobile studio the fellow musicians rescued ideas and songs from the '60s and '70s and reinterpreted them, keeping its roots but at the same time taking new directions under the influence of the present times where societies, technology and artistic creation are at a boiling point.
The recorded songs were in majority versions of songs from the British autumnal folk period, but there were also extensions to music made in other latitudes like the German kosmisch music and Brazilian tropicalia movement. The result turned out to be so amazing that quickly formed a whirlpool of new ideas giving birth to Beautify Junkyards as a band and subsequently to their debut album. Having recorded 9 songs as a starting point, new sessions happened where they invited a number of other musicians like i-Wolf (from the Austrian Sofa Surfers), Riz Maslen (from the electronic british project Neotropic), Karine Carvalho (singer from Brazilian band 3 na Massa) and the American folk singer Erica Buettner, sharing a communal borderless vision. The post-production of the album was held at the Electric Garden studio in Lisbon, where the sound was transported in various directions like branches extending in between delays, synthesizers, acoustic guitars and vocals in reverb, forming a dense forest with multiple forms and foliage colours.
