10/10 Marc Teare Customer review, 10th August 2018
Rodrigo's debut album is a work of sublime beauty and depth. These 9 instrumentals create a warm and fascinating sound-world that subtly combines a range of influences to create something totally unique...we have the lyrical melodies we'd expect from a Brazilian composer, the complex rhythm and percussion, combined with a melancholy that's reminiscent at times of Robert Wyatt, passages of Reichian minimalism, the whole package held together by a dub approach to the production. Take some time and allow this gorgeous music to seep into your bones.
