Recorded in both Salford and Ibiza, this is a re-issue of the debut release from Gnod’s Marlene Ribeiro, previously released on a cassette edition of 50 so if you have one of those I’ll eat my hat. The extended vinyl version is presented on a screen printed sleeve whilst the inner sleeves seem to have been found in some ancient closed down record shop being all tatty and written on.
The music is a swirling psych blast of voices and sound with a distinct eastern feel to some of the tracks. Ethnic sounding instruments are plucked enthusiastically over bouncing drum machine whilst the vocals strain and swoop in a faraway, indistinct manner. The initial comparison which sprung to my addled brain was a more esoteric take on Peaking Lights dreamy fx laden dub, although tracks like ‘Beira Beira’ grate a little with some pretty discordant sounds. ‘Importa’, however is an absolutely lovely track, based around a simply strummed acoustic guitar, and layers of vocals, evoking the heat haze of summer in a gorgeously washed out, crystalline piece of music.
On the flip, the slo-mo drum machines and choralled vocals recall Hype Williams dream state floor gaze most notably on the closing ‘Farco Do Inberno‘ which churns along with a metronomic beat keeping a snail like pace whilst disembodied effects-laden male and female voices appear out of the synth laden, dub-fired ether. Wierd, dislocated music but strangely soothing.
Sure to appeal to fans of Hype Williams, Yong Yong etc.
