I've just got the new Los Hermanos album, "4". Now there is no doubt, they really are the best rock/indie band in the world currently (in my not so humble opinion).
This album once again goes a new, bold, unexpected, direction. It opens with the song "Dois Barcos", which is definitely their most elaborated song ever. A work of art. Every instrument, every note, sounds like it was very carefully thought and put in its place... everything in its right place. The lyrics uses a trick of writing senteces in a "backward" fashion (like our national anthem does), which just makes it sound even more complex and interesting. Just put on your headphones and listen to this song, it'll make you shiver.
You'll get some latin music in "Paquetá", and rough 70's in "Os Pássaros" -- amazing songs by Amarante! The hit "O Vento" will make you feel like dancing on your own all night along, sticking in your head for days, even though the song doesn't even have a chorus. (By the way, is it just me or there is a little bit of Legião Urbana in this song?)
What else? There's a beautiful bossa nova in "Sapato Novo", great indie rock in "Condicional", melancholy in "Pois É"... yes, this album has it all. Great great music folks!
BTW, i went to their concert last weekend. Was great except for the fact my cell phone got robbed... anyways.
