A compilation of tracks from out-of-print 12”s and rare CD-Rs from the Lisbon-based trio. The tracks are united by a sense of live improvisation with electronic gear, even as they stylistically run a wide gamut, taking in mutant disco, raw acid, post-punk, lo-fi house, tropical ambient and unclassifiable experiments in sound.

Most closely associated with their home city’s Principe Discos label, Niagara have also self-released a number of homemade CD-Rs on their own Ascender imprint, and recently dropped Veneza, a collection of beatless excursions recorded at the 2017 Venice Biennale. Parva Naturalia follows an album of brand new ambient pieces, Magna Moralia, released as a limited edition cassette and digital edition on Disciples in December 2021.
