Another Brazilian wonder! This is a WOW album for dancing or getting work done around the house.
When I picked up this CD to play, I had no idea what a Brazilian group would be playing that would pique my interest. I guess I expected Ipenema music but it didn’t take me long to find out the truth when I heard the first track on this 4-song album that also includes a video. The track has a great dance beat and segues into track two so the dancing can continue. The duo is composed of Mylene who does all the vocals and Erico Theoboldo who plays all the instruments (drums, electric piano and acoustics). The guitars are played by Marcel Dadalto.
Much to my surprise, the group does quite well with vocals and instrumentals. The beat is consistent on all four tracks and leads the way for the music to follow. I can just imagine how crowded the dancefloor would be with this music pumping in the background. The music is a mixture of trance and electronica as well as “jungle music” and isn’t unpleasing to the ear.
This is their second album following on the heels of the well received first album titled Last Time On Earth. They received rave reviews when it was released and are touring Europe and South America. They are welcome wherever they play and it looks like they’ll be coming to the United States to bring the beat over here. I’m expecting that crowds will go wild. Some people will stand and listen while others will dance their heads off.
This album is certainly a crowd pleaser and I enjoyed the techno beat. Playing it through speakers, I could hear every instrument being used. Mylene’s voice is strong and she sings in Spanish and English, something that will really help when they get to the states and start their tour. Enjoy this danceable album and go with the beat! Catch more of them at www.myspace.com/telepathique including the video that’s on their CD.
