Boomkat Product Review:
New on Bokeh Versions; São Paulo's Mauricio Takara and Carla Boregas team up on "Linha D'Agua" for a transcendent set of cosmic jazz, fusing Takara's flurries of improvised percussion with Boregas's spooky electronics.
The two are prominent figures in the Brazilian underground and have a long history of performing together - they make up the rhythm section in post-punk band Rakta - and this familiarity gives the record an almost effortless feel. The two musicians have performed with each other so frequently that there's a depth and fluidity that blurs the lines between their roles; Takara's drums push and pull the electronic elements (he has a MIDI trigger to allow more control) and Boregas fashions each sound to create and alluring glow of resonance, ASMR rustling and warm bass.
As the record progresses, we move through dream-like Jordowosky-esque moods into sound worlds that scream of '70s giallo movies. The album's centerpiece 'Mãe d'Ouro' is a dramatic, analog belter that reminds of Goblin at their most druggy or desert-core outfit Grails with thick drones underpinning syrupy, beating rhythms. "Linha D'Agua" isn't an instant record by any means, but might be the perfect accompaniment to a humid, doomy summer as the world we knew slowly disappears from view.
