Mix Of Pop, No-Wave & Edgy Tropicalia On 180g Vinyl LP!

TAS Rated 4/5 Music, 4/5 Sonics in the April 2021 Issue of The Absolute Sound!

Thiago Nassif is a Brazilian musician, composer and producer based in Rio de Janeiro, whose impactful mélange of pop, jarring no-wave and edgy Tropicália has slowly been turning heads the world over.

Gearbox Records presents his latest album Mente, co-produced by no-wave icon Arto Lindsay, and representative, via its diverse list of accredited musicians, of the progressive, new-generational music scene that is bubbling away in Rio.

The album's title is a Portuguese homonym meaning "mind" and "to lie", and represents Thiago's attitude towards what he calls the "post-truth" state of Brazil's political regime. Mixing together the languages of Portuguese and English, Thiago goes deep into no-wave, experimental electronic music, Tropicalismo, jazz and rock, moving between funk carioca to dystopian, distorted bossa nova, and beyond.

The leading light of the new generation of Brazilian songwriters
-Arto Lindsay
-Spectrum Culture
sheer audaciousness and creativity... It's much unlike anything else you're likely to hear from a very broadly defined pop realm
-Something Else!
Supposedly, musical genres can fuse together, but on Thiago Nassif's new album the combination of styles feels more like a collision. Nassif lives in Rio de Janeiro, and at times on Mente you'll hear strains of Brazilian music, including bossa nova. With their abrupt juxtapositions and retro-sounding keyboards, some tracks have a downtown East Village vibe. While the music is cerebral, jagged rhythms and off-kilter funk add a visceral element. To top it all off, Nassif has a knack for catchy pop hooks. The sum total is music that's engaging, provocative, unpredictable, and darkly seductive... I listened to it on vinyl, and I was impressed by the clarity, detail, and immediacy of the recording, as well as the noise-free wax.
