Brazillian counter-culture and Super Furry Animal create madcap album
The most striking thing about this clattering, madcap alliance between psychedelic Super Furry Animal Rhys and Brazilian counter-cultural vanguard Da Gatorra occurs on recent single (and standout track) ‘In A House With No Mirrors’: it sees our primal-electro duo tone down their DIY brouhaha, and start channelling Nick Cave.
Sure, the album’s short on additional pop hooks – save perhaps the machine-spatter of ‘6868’ – but its technicolour racket serves a higher purpose, according to Da Gatorra: ‘peace my brothers, this record was made with lots of feelings and love to bring consciousness and show a little bit of truth.’ Amen.
