Mercado De Peixe : Água Da Faca [foot248]

“Here comes a new (the first for us) album by a Brazilian band Mercado De Peixe. In this new work, the band approaches the folk culture of the countryside of São Paulo to the dancefloors and to the global ghettos. Digital cumbia, africanism, garage rock, psychedelic rhythms, eletropical and post-bossa nova are some of the elements present in the eighth disc of Mercado de Peixe. The sextet is pioneer in merging pop and folk culture in São Paulo’s countryside. They use typical instruments like the ten strings guitar (viola caipira), accordion and their lyrics are inspired by ‘urban tales’ from Bauru, the town where the band was created. Besides the musical references, there’s also connections with nature. It is a result of a series of immersions carried out the band in Brazilian Cerrado landscape. Isolated from civilization, the band composed and made the arrangements for all of the songs. The album has guest participation of the singer and guitarist Saulo Duarte (winner of Prêmio da Música Brasileira 2015), percussionist Rômulo Nardes (from Bixiga 70 band), the singers Tika and Kika, percussionist Junião and multi-instrumentalist Pipo Pegoraro, who also mixed the work. Água da Faca was recorded with the support of the Government of São Paulo, by the cultural programme Proac.”

Nick Rivera : Zamalek [LBN023]

Zamalek is an island in Cairo in the middle of the Nile. But also a neighbourhood, something in between. This album is about the sky you can’t see from this island and the things that swim in it. Zamalek is a warm cuddle from your trusted friend, a fist in the nape from your best enemy.”

Yokandesh : Viva Como Queira [MIXG010]

“Mixgalaxy goes exotic this summer. Another one experimental step in our journey. We’re gonna present you our first LP release by overseas artist Yokandesh. He was born in Brazil town Belo Horizonte but raised in Lima (Peru), Quito (Ecuador) and Vitoria (Brazil). The moment of truth happened in Germany where Yokandesh decided to become a music maker.

And the result is Viva Como Quiera (Live as You Want to), top quality Brazilian Pop album mixed with Samba, Rock, Baião, Jazz and other elements from many genres. The album shows how versatile pop can be, having as many as five completely different rythms and still maintaining an identity. 1000 physical copies have been sold in Brazil since January 2010. These songs are about travelling, love and freedom. A perfect album for the summer.”

Various Artists : Braaahhlitz Compilation [aaahh016]

“Take a look at it, have a listen: We are proud to present you Braaahhlitz #1, the second compilation in our aaahhchestra series. In 2012 we met in the small village of Bralitz (near Berlin) for a weeklong recording session. Members of e.g. Keyboard Rebel and ne:o plus Nicolas Falcon of Falcon and the Featherweights fame did their best to recreate the vibe of our excursion to Denmark in 2011.

Even more than in Denmark this feels like a group effort with a more unified sound. Still, Braaahhlitz #1 is a journey through various genre influences, like folk, balkan pop and even hip hop – partly serious, partly humourous.

Eight songs, including flutes, trumpets, extensive clapping and voices make Braaahhlitz #1 the ideal gift for your spouse, auntie or that guy. If you order now, we will additionally send you the set of steak knives and the garden claw free of charge. Braaahhlitz #1 has been awarded with the aaahh seal of approval for quality recordings. But kidding aside, as usual this release will be available as free download. Payment is optional.

All this would not have been possible without the support of our host Ralf, the production skills of Milan Greulich (Rokotak, ne:o) and – of course + especially – this would not have been possible without you, dear aaahh records supporter. We hope that you will be as thoroughly happy with this new release as we are.”
