Mémoire is a compilation album of Portuguese post-rock project How Comes The Constellations Shine consisting of outtakes. Those songs were recorded between 2006 and 2010 before Gonçalo Pereira start to work on the debut album Belongs To Mafra released in 2012 by Fluttery Records. During this four-year period, he recorded over two hundred songs. 
The album was highly appreciated by the followers of our label and the critiques. Richard Allen from A Closer Listen wrote that “It’s uncommon for a band to break up, then return stronger than ever ~ but this rarity has just occurred. Portuguese band How Comes the Constellations Shine (once known as Purfect) is now down to its original member, guitarist Gonçalo Pereira.” 
After this album Pereira started working on the next How Comes The Constellations Shine LP, Mémoire. It wasn’t easy to choose among two hundred tracks and some needed remixing. 
Fans of How Comes The Constellations Shine as a band and both as a project love this album as well.

“Originally called Purfect, ” How Comes The Constellations Shine ” was formed in Lisbon, Portugal in 2005. Constellations was founded by guitarist Gonçalo Pereira. Working by himself, he completed most of the Constellations future songs. By late 2005 Pereira began the search for band members. The first to join was fellow drummer and long time friend André Abreu. Soon afterwards the two musicians linked up with bassist Nuno Mendonça and guitarist Tito Silva. In 2007 the band announced the departure of Mendonça in January. In 2008 Nuno Fragoso was recruited for Mub Festival concert and stays in the band. The group disbanded in early 2010.
Currently How Comes The Constellations Shine returned to the original form just with Gonçalo Pereira. On a reviewRichard Allen from A Closer Listen wrote that “It’s uncommon for a band to break up, then return stronger than ever.”
How Comes The Constellations Shine music travels amog hidden treassures among post-rock, ambient and modern classical” (Fluttery Records)
