One of the most exciting new Brazilian albums we've stocked in a long time! This great new album by Lenine is a mad mix of soulful vocals, flanged-out guitars, rootsy percussion, and modern production with some slight amount of the kinds of sample influences being used by other modern Brazilians (like Carlinhos Brown or Arnaldo Antunes). The real difference, though, is Lenine's great guitar work – which strikes out through the mix in a haunting Beck-ish way. His voice is pretty darn great, too – with a deep richness that we haven't heard since Milton Nascimento or Djavan. The whole package is pretty darn nice – and tracks include "Arede", "Tubi Tupy", "Alzirae Torre", "Relampiano", "Eu Sou Meu Guia", and "Nao Pressao".
