|Title||SUMMER LONG (10IN) (CVNL) (LTD) (DLCD)|
Limited 10Ã¶ vinyl EP pressing. 2017 collaboration featuring former Stereolab vocalist Laetitia Sadier and the Brazilian group Mombojâ¤. In 2012, our story begins. Laetitia Sadier performed in Brazil and met the band members. There was a special connection between them and a two-week artistic residence in a small house at the Aldeia borough of Recife, was proposed. They took Laetitia there to submerge her in a Brazilian musical environment. Avoiding the cold studio environment, they spend two weeks interacting and communicating and this brought about, almost three years later, the appearance of Summer Long. The album opens with Ã´C'est Le VentÃ¶, a psychedelic and dreamlike journey that shows clearly the Stereolab influence on Mombojâ¤Ãs music, but with that elegant, syncopated touch of new-wave Brazilian music. Ã´The SourceÃ¶ is disturbing, perturbing, driven continuously by LaetitiaÃs brilliant voice and a dirty guitar, and a pop bridge that breaks the song in two is a straight-up wonder, pushing the song toward that chaotic end. Ã´Power Of TouchÃ¶ dives head first into bossa-nova territory, where you can see a special connection between the two parts, with their obvious commonalities, though it was a territory that Mombojâ¤ hadnÃt entered since their first album, Ã´NadadenovoÃ¶. Excitement, melancholy, and feelings of weightlessness arise on this cosmic bossa-nova close to the early duos of Gal Costa and Caetano Veloso at the end of the 60s. Finally, Ã´The Berlin FriendÃ¶ closes the release, breaking with all the earlier moods, somewhere between funk impulses and garage accents, with the evocative presence of synthesizers, arriving at an impossible merging of Os Mutantes, Neu!, and Stereolab. Slippery structures, overwhelming fantasy and imagination. Highly suggestive.
