Title: De Lá Até Aqui
Artist: Móveis Coloniais de Acaju
Released in: 2013
Móveis Coloniais de Acaju is a brazilian band, specifically from Brasília, that was formed in 1998. Because Brasília is not a really old city (founded in 1998) it’s said that its inhabitants have different origins, and so happens with the Móveis ten members, as a result, the band has a unique and diverse style, that mixes saxophone, trombone, flute, keyboard and some other instuments, and influence of indie rock, post-punk, garage rock, ska and música típica brasileira (typical brazilian music).
I had already downloaded their first two albums “Idem” from 2005, and “C_mpl_te” from 2009, and if you like “De Lá Até Aqui”, you can find the other two on their website.
I discovered Móveis Coloniais de Acaju because, for my portuguese class, I had to do a presentation about a brazilian band, so I went to Wikipedia and randomlly found this one, and I’m glad that happened. It’s hard to describe the sound, because, since I’m not brazilian, I can not assure that their songs are a representation of the culture of this country, but I can say I love what I’m listening to, even though I don’t know for sure what they are saying. Their sound is completely different to what I’ve heart before, therefore is really hard to find something like this. So, if you want to listen to something absolutely new, give this band a chance.
Here are some of the songs I liked the most:
