great brazzaville music



and great show, atmosphere, lyrics, great guys. just got back.
cred ca as putea sa spun, fara sa imi para rau de alte concerte f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f f bune la care am fost, ca cel din seara asta a fost cel mai tare. si anume: brazzaville in session.

"
Brazzaville a luat nastere in 1997 in Los Angeles, liderul trupei fiind David Brown, fostul saxofonist al celor de la Beck. Au lansat pana in prezent sapte albume. Asa cum o descriu chiar ei, muzica lor suna ca un amestec de primii stropi ai unei ploi torentiale de vara, cantecul unui canar la ora 4 dimineata, vocea care se aude in difuzoarele unui aeroport, mirosul cafelei dimineata, al ierbii proaspete si gustul de mango.
Sound-ul lor este o baza indie rock, cu puternice influente de jazz, fado si bossa nova, care reuseste sa te duca cu gandul la briza de pe o plaja pustie sau la un magazin de mirodenii. Nici unul dintre cantecele lor nu te va trage cu forta intr-o lume noua, te vor ademeni toate cu parfumuri si cocktailuri pana cand vei fi dispus sa mergi de voie buna. In plus, vocea adauga o nota de mister si nostalgie unei instrumentatii eterice si foarte catchy, care include chitari, clape, acordeon, pian, bass si tobe.

"
asa sunt descrisi pe metropotam. all this and more than that, i would say.
tipul canta atat de natural si de relaxat, dansa misto si foarte degajat, muzica suna atat de bine...what else?! melodiile se legau atat de bine, un timbru vocal foarte personalizat, daca pot sa il numesc asa...foarte placut. ma simteam vinovata ca merg, pe de o parte, ca mai am atatea de facut, dar imi pare atat de bine ca am fost! am stat upfront, in primu' rand, am si dansat, fredonat, aplaudat, pocnit...asta pentru ca publicul a fost invitat sa interactioneze..:)
si la final am primit si autografe de la 2 dintre ei. pe cd-ul nou cumparat. :)
foarte tare, ce sa mai?! ma gandesc serios daca sa imi iau bilet si sa plec sa ii vad si in barcelona in iunie. :)

BRAZZAVILLE MANIFESTO
Brazzaville is dedicated to the naïve idea that the world is a beautiful place filled with wonder. We believe that there is another reality, just below the surface of our waking world, in which all is well. This is the true reality for us. We are committed to becoming less afraid of the world around us by helping others whenever possible. We love playing music and we dream of having a ship that runs on waste oil so that we may travel the seven seas making new friends and eating salted cod and mangosteen."
