[… Even shorter, and actually involving Mira (i.e. like Setúbal, with which it shares some wave-like predilections...) is then Lluvia, including Emilie Skrijelj (accordion) & Tom Malmendier (percussion) to form a quartet around Rodrigues: I hadn't mentioned Skrijelj previously, but she also has a new duo album, Krci, on Creative Sources. Meanwhile, Malmendier had appeared with the quintet Escargot on the enigmatic Dart Love (discussed here in April 2018, and recalled in March around Dawá...).
