Avalanches are usually unquestionable acts of violence from nature – rubble rushing at a great speed destroying everything in its path. The newest joint from Goiânia, Brazil’s Boogarins resembles the aftermath of this natural disaster; its guitars are built like walls, vocal melodies snake like oxygen flowing through little cracks of the rubble, and guitar leads break like rays of sunshine.
This is the first track the band has shared from their upcoming second album, Manual, due on October 30. Since the release of their first record, 2013’s As Plantas Que Curam, the young duo (now quartet) have had no chance to sit still. Boogarins have played everywhere, opening for Flaming Lips and Guided By Voices, and performing at festivals from Burgerama to Primavera Sound to NRMAL. But they’ve still got plenty more to say, and will surely catch the eye of more listeners who will fall in love with their brand of psych music.
Boogarins are still expanding their Tropicália roots. The new album shouldn’t come across as a major departure for fans, although their sonic freakouts are still best appreciated in a live setting. Manual was recorded at Jorge Explosion’s Estudio Circo Perrotti in Gijón, Spain and will be available through Other Music/Burger Records.
