New album Elã by Kalouv

2017-10-26 04:36:41 UTC


Elã (pronounced Elan) is the new record of the Brazilian instrumental/post-rock band Kalouv, formed by Basílio Queiroz (bass), Bruno Saraiva (keyboards), Saulo Mesquita (guitar), Túlio Albuquerque (guitar) and Rennar Pires (drums). The album was composed between December of 2016 and march of 2017, in a country house named Sítio Santa Fé, located in the interior of the state of Pernambuco in Brazil. Also, the record became possible by a crowdfunding campaign, raising 124% of the goal in 45 days.

Between the time of composing in the Sítio Santa Fé, the nine tracks of Elã gained life and made the musicians develop new ways of creating music. This process brought more direct songs inspired by contemporary music that goes from alt rock and IDM genres to pop from the eighties. Therefore the post-rock that guided the previous records get new colors and goes off the sobriety and introspective tone to give space to tracks guided by synths, rhythmic guitars, and vocals, with more interaction between drums, bass and piano.

Created in 2010, the band has in their history two full-length albums, Pluvero (2014) and Sky Swimmer (2011) and an EP, Planar Sobre o Invisível (2016), all of them being well received by Brazilian and foreign media. In this fourth work, the band tries to bring new musical influences and collaborations to the album, like Sofia Freire in the tracks Elã and Pedra Bruta, Yukio in the track Mergulho Profundo and RØKR in the track Hotline Miami. The record had the recording, mixing and mastering by Bruno Giorgi, sound engineer behind other Brazilian music projects like Lenine (winner of Latin Grammy), baleia, Vitor Araújo and others. He also participated in the album adding textures and rhythmic mixing designs to the album.

The graphic art and design project is signed by Thaís Jacoponi, a resident of the city of São Paulo, Brazil. The image of a person hugging this black risk represents the energy that the word Elã brings: innovation, impulse, drastic force. The record was named after we met a little dog in the country house called Elã. The name drew our curiosity because is an unexpected name to put in a dog, so we looked for the meaning and found that it connects entirely with the feeling we were trying to put in our composing time. Also, was a meaningful word to represent our friendship and the stories that we constructed together in seven years as a band.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
