Out Now – Digital Ameríndio & (American Bigfoot) Mouse Mouse Joe – Intensos Animais Imperceptíveis


Some years ago I asked himself:
– Who is Digital Ameríndio (Amerindian Digital)?
– The important thing about this is that it means Digital Ameríndio (Amerindian Digital) and not Ameríndio Digital (Digital Amerindian)
– …
– It’s not about a high-tech Amerindian adapted to the digital world and this kind of thing, it is in fact about a fella that deals with the digital world as a traditional Amerindian would, for example: if the computer doesn’t work he starts slapping the machine and saying like “hey! c’mon? what’s up?”.

So, Sandro Rodrigues, the creator of Digital Ameríndio, is possibly the most psychedelic person alive in the whole country. Last year he invited the musicians Löis Lancaster, Pedro Bonifrate, Robson Piva and Gabriel Ares to form the group that he named as ‘(American Bigfoot) Mouse Mouse Joe’ and they recorded this Intensos Animais Imperceptíveis, his first work with the band, which features brand new songs and new versions of pieces that appeared in the previous records a incomensurável piração psicodélica, degenerativa, transgênica e generalizada do bizarro mundo mágico de orleans e braguilhas [1999], muito tarde (EP) [2007] and ‘, mas qual?’ [2008].

The album’s sound forms vary considerably and its unit is given by an idea that you can intuit after a few auditions, perhaps with a little help from the preceding paragraphs. Sometimes it sounds like a Mercury Rev from Bonsuça*, sometimes as a seresteiro**, others as a witch doctor/ João Gilberto, but none of this is really clear.

As usual you can download the album for free on the ‘download’ section, get a CD for 5 bucks in the ‘shop’ section or hear it on the label’s bandcamp.

Happy May 1st.

* nickname of a neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro (real name: Bonsucesso)
** the literal translation would be ‘serenader’ but the actual meaning realates to something closer to a bard
