But what would you expect from a man like Ricardo Remédio. He's the mind behind atmospheric doom outfit Löbo and the electronic alter-ego RA, so he knows a thing or two about creating atmospheric soundscapes and deep, narrative music. And that is exactly what you get on this album. In fact, it opens with a Tangerine Dream meets Calva Y Nada meets JK Flesh kind of track, which even has a dash of post-rock in it.
"Wow", you might think, "that's varied" and you would be absolutely right. There is plenty of variation to be found on this album, but it all revolves around an industrial inspired approach to dark ambient and downtempo electronics. 'Ossos' for example is a perfect early morning dark dancefloor anthem, driving on a sluggish beat and minimal synths. I'd say it's one of my favorites but that would make the other track less interesting and they definitely are not.
I mean, the short ambient track 'Garça' is pure bliss, worthy of mentioning the name Eno. Love it. 'Caça' is a gloomy and mysterious anthem, showcasing the immersive atmosphere of post-rock and suddenly changing into another dark dance track. The album continues pretty much in that fashion, track after track and they're all equally immersive and pleasurable. So yeah, I'm not going to pick a favorite here.
If you're into the music of acts like Mmoths, Bonobo, Balam Acab, Oneirogen, Terminal Sound System and so on, you should definitely add this gem to your collection. This comes from someone who knows perfectly how to create a dark, immersive sound and keep it interesting for the entire duration. So yeah, as I mentioned in the opening paragraph, this thing comes highly recommended...
