Boogarins + Holy Loaf
Psyche and post-punk sit deep in the Brazilian musical psyche. You may have seen Boogarins support Tune-Yards on tour last year where they came across as a freakier Tame Impala.
Their brilliant new LP ‘Sombrou Du?vida’ does not dispel the impression that these are some very avid psyche ad- venturers. Boogarins are thrillingly “other”, but they certainly know their way around a tune, and they are pin-prick funky too.
The use of a large, tuned live room at Austin’s Space Recording Studio allowed Boogarins to include the bold sound of their live performances — heavy rock guitar from Benke Ferraz (also in the producer role) colliding with experimental synth noise and bass undercurrents from Raphael Vaz, all driven by the incredibly dynamic and effulgent drums of Ynaia? Benthroldo.
