New Reviews In The Quietus, Brighton Noise and Sounds and Colours

Quite a few articles that I am relatively proud of have gone down over the past two weeks and so I thought I would flag them up here.

Firstly, a review I wrote a while ago of Toma Tu Jabón Kapax, the debut album from Colombian group Los Pirañas was published in The Quietus. I originally sent it to them in February this year but they deemed it too old (it had been out in Colombia for around six months). When I realised it had been released on vinyl in Spain I saw my opportunity to send the review in again. Here it is: thequietus.com/articles/10773-los-pira-as-toma-tu-jab-n-kapax-review.

I also realised that I have a page on The Quietus which lists all my contributions (just three of them so far): thequietus.com/users/7862.

My review of the Micah P Hinson show at the Basement in Brighton has also been published: brightonnoise.co.uk/review?p=34317.

Finally I wanted to shed light on two of my recent pieces on Sounds and Colours, a review of the new Meridian Brothers album Desesperanza (soundsandcolours.com/articles/colombia/meridian-brothers-desesperanza) and an interview with the Brazilian rapper/singer Criolo which became quite epic (soundsandcolours.com/articles/brazil/art-soothes-the-soul-it-calms-us-gives-us-warmth-an-interview-with-criolo)

A Glut of Articles on Lucas Santtana

First off, if you’ve not heard Sem Nostalgia yet by Lucas Santtana then you need to pull yourself together. Get a taster via this clip on Youtube. The album was released in Brazil in 2009 and finally made it’s way to the UK via Mais Um Discos on August 29th, the same record label that put out the superb Oi! A Nova Musica Brasileira! last year. Well, it turns out I got a bit excited about it’s release and wrote quite a few articles about the album as well as interviewing Lucas himself! Continue reading A Glut of Articles on Lucas Santtana
