I have returned to bring you news of a fantastic Bandcamp site that I recently discovered. It is called Hominus Canidae, and once a month the lovely folks behind it issue a compilation of independent Brazilian music and invite you to name your price.
I picked three compilations at random, one from the top, one from the bottom and one from the middle. I enjoyed them all and there really is something for everyone, whether your tastes run to straightforward samba or 14 minutes of tuneless banging and twanging.
Hominus Canidae have been issuing these compilations for more than ten years now - the next release will be Volume 150 - so I have a lot of catching up to do. In the meantime, here is a track apiece from each of my three random selections.
"A Chave" - Bárbara Eugênia (Vol. 7)
"Volta" - O Terno (Vol. 76)
"O Sentido É o Olho" - Bel Medula, Luczan (Vol. 146)
I've no idea why you've not posted the 14 minutes of banging and twanging (tuneless or otherwise)ReplyDelete
I didn't want to traumatize Anita, but if you are willing to risk it here it is:Delete
Thanks, it is playing now, I will see if it out the dogs off their teaDelete
This is bobbinsDelete
I'd rather listen to Springsteen than this!Delete
I too was looking forward to the 14 minutes of banging and twanging, until I heard it. All three chosen tracks are very good though.ReplyDelete
Did you endure the entire 14 mins 34 seconds? (but it's not as bad as Papal Visit)Delete
No, I dipped into it at different points and got the jist!Delete
There was a reason I chose not to feature it originally. I wanted to spare you all but was pressured into doing it by Portugal's answer to Dr Doolittle.Delete
