Out Now – Matheus Mota – Desenho


About a month ago Matheus Mota made ​​available on the internet his first album Desenho, now released by Cloud Chapel in limited edition CD.

Matheus integrates a new scene of Recife headed by him, Zeca Viana and D Mingus that has little to do with that long caretão* Recife we are used to hear since the 90s.

The main line of the album is drawn by alternating almost serialist melodic lines (those ones that birds can’t sing) with high-pop moments, as if the spirits of Arrigo Barnabé and Guilherme Arantes fought for the guy’s body.

The recording is home based, except for the voices that were recorded in a studio and made it to be the most expensive Cloud Chapel production to date, totaling 60 reais (close to 30 dollars).

You can download it for free in the ‘download’ section, get the CD for 5 dollars in the ‘shop’ or hear it on the new label’s bandcamp.

Happy holidays.

* something like ‘dull, uninteresting’

The 90s style GBV website

The first time I accessed the internet was when I was 18, in 1999, in a place where I worked in the neighborhood of Ipiranga in Sao Paulo, close to my mother’s house (where I lived). It was a company whose employees were just me, another nerd guy and the owner. I looked at that thing (the Internet) and asked the nerd guy:

“Is it possible to find something about a band I like on this thing?”
“Yes, what’s the name of the band?”
“Guided By Voices”

He got to some pre-Google search engine and found

The site has hardly changed since then.
So last week I found a largehearted boy’s list where Cloud Chapel’s site appears along with that of GBV.

It’s like, don’t know, I was moved.
