about

‘Novos Mistérios’ (Hospital Productions 2014) follows their debut LP for La Tempesta International/Tannen Records with an acutely stripped down blend of mostly “live” recorded percussion and explorative electronic sound design.
The project, and album, is a radical inversion and consolidation of the duo’s respective backgrounds in performance art, punk and indie bands. Inspired by the febrile humidity and sensory overload of Brasilian carnival music, they temper layeres of roiling, propulsive percussion with electronic drones, effects and tribalist vocals to militant, hypnotic effect. Six tracks charge between technoid polymetrics, kinky minimalism and meditative ritual with particular focus on rhythmelodic cadence and carefully constructed atmospheres drawing lines between the avant- garde coda of William Winant and Indonesian Gamelan on ‘Essenghelo Tropical’, to Cut Hand’s voodoo invocations in ‘Legiõs De Cupins’, and the percussive moments of Brazilian metal legends in ‘Sepultura’.
The song ‘Sepultura’ is also part of the soundtrack to ‘Socrates One Of Us’, directed by Mimmo Calopresti, and Nico’s Von Archive co-curator, Spanish film director Carlos Casas is producing an individual video for each track.
