Today we have a couple of tracks for you from what is believed to be one of the first independently released Brazilian albums, "Tempo de Fratura" by Alcides Neves. Originally issued in 1979, it is now available again thanks to the good folks at Litoral Records.
It is hard to describe Alcides' musical style because there isn't just one, he hops about all over the place. There are some tropicalia influences, some folk, some jazz and even a bit of prog (which might appeal to at least one Lusophone listener). As the blurb says, the album "revels in its own disformity".
Come and join the revels.
"Lampião" - Alcides Neves
"Hibernante in Tempore" - Alcides Neves
My favourite revel is the orange one.ReplyDelete
Typical CC, never shies away from tackling controversial subjectsDelete
Listened to the album, it's not for the faint-heartedReplyDelete
I particularly enjoyed Lampião - a definite hint of prog going on in that one.ReplyDelete
That's my favourite on the album as wellDelete
Hey, I'm suprised that you are still blogging. I read of your posts and admiration for the South African producer Joe Shirimani a while back. You were kind to share some of his tracks, even tracks that are unavailable on streaming sites. I need your attention this time as I was looking for a specific track or album of his. The specific track is called "Bomba" and appeared on a album of his from 1995 called "Ni Vuyile". If you happen to have it, please share the track or album if you can. Only music videos could be found on YouTube: https://youtu.be/GIfDd36KX5c Cheers.ReplyDelete
Apologies, but I am afraid I can't help. I have also been looking for the 'Ni Vuyile' album for a long time without any success. I will keep looking.Delete
Alright, thanks for the responseDelete
