Post-tropical polyphonic populists Graveola launch their fourth album ʻVozes
Invisíveis (Invisible Voices)ʼ on 24/02/14 for free download via their website:
ʻVozes Invisíveis (Invisible Voices)ʼ is according to Luiz Gabriel-Lopes from the
band, an “inventory of sketches, studies and experiments” and acts as a bridge
following the critically acclaimed ʻEu Preciso de um liquidificadorʼ in 2013 and
their forthcoming fifth album later this year.
Influenced by kitsch pop radio and dusty classical vinyls Graveola create a
sound they call “carnival-cannibalism”. Mixing the cannon of 20th century
Brazilian music – in particular samba, bossa and tropicalia – with folk, jazz, funk,
Latin, baroque and blues influences their music brings to mind the playful
psychedelic pop of the legendary Os Mutantes.
The Guardian newspaper describe the band as having a ” a uniquely skewed
indie aesthetic” and itʼs a combination of their fierce independence, non-stop
creativity and progressive attitude to the distribution of their music that sees
them release via the internet for free ʻVozes Invisíveisʼ.
