Damon Albarn’s tribute to Uruguay and more amazing releases

It was difficult, very difficult, to select this week’s highlights. A lot of good stuff coming from all sides in our headquarters, to the point that this editor, for the first time, has a pain in his heart for leaving out so much good. Damon Albarn honoring Uruguay, who would have thought? But if it were easy it wouldn’t be funny! And the Oscar for best of the week goes to…

Highlights: Dunning Krueger – Forgotten Feelings – Amanda Mussi Remix

A Massa Records, captained by Fernando Moreno e Renato Cohen, have been consolidating with one of the most … duhh … Brazilian labels. mass of the moment.

The time bomb is this EP from Dunning Krueger. The three tracks are impeccable (listen here in the player), but the version mixed by Amanda Mussi it’s spectacular. Worth the show!

Third World Industrial

Beto Offs he is a persevering figure in the industrial scene in São Paulo. Producing for decades, he has been involved in several projects involving participation in the bizarre Electroscose (next to our Laerte Chestnut) the soundtrack of erotic movies. But it’s with the Bipolar Mockers that we see the producer at his best. And Death Tool, featuring Michaela Steber, is the best form of BM. The video is absolutely flawless.

Run, the policy is coming

Straight from Rotterdam, deliciously well-crafted beats, vocals that don’t deny the origin and a really cool music video. O The Policy, formed by Pierre Hagelaars e Thijmen Hoebink, is simply sensational. Press play and go dancing!

broken art in the broken

Izzy Gordon, niece of Dolores Duran, extols love and art in a delightfully touching music video. Walk through cultural spaces on the outskirts experiencing art, smile and exchanges of tender looks. Music is a masterpiece. Also positive letter. High quality samba jazz. And what a voice!

Tribute to Uruguay

Damon Albarn hit the ten when composing this sublime song, called Tower Of Montevideo. The song was composed in honor of the Palácio Salvo, from the 1920s, which is located in the old center of the Uruguayan capital and from whose balconies you can see the entire Rio da Prata. What song!

Delicious the EP of Post Modern Connection, released by the new Before Sunrise Records, our columnist’s record company Carlo Montalvão, responsible for Noise Radar. Light indie pop, good to listen to, without falling into the fuss. I recommend the whole record, but In The Dark is a chair.
