Boomkat Product Review:
Music From Memory hail a keenly anticipated 2nd volume of their 'Outro Tempo' survey of electronic music from Brazil with this teaser revolving a massive pearl, Individual Industry’s addictive ‘Eyes’, and the worming funk of Bruhahá Babélico. We serendipitously stumbled across ‘Eyes’ via searches for Pink Industry some years back, and it’s a joy to now see it properly available. Written and released by Alex Twin and Lilian Vaz’ cult band in 1993, it’s a perfectly icy mixture of early trip hop, ambient-pop and shoegaze lit up with Lilian’s achingly spot-on vocal, which, for us, defines a dark ‘90s sexiness we can’t get enough of. 100% essential!
"In the lead up to part two of the highly anticipated Outro Tempo compilation, MFM drops this teaser EP with the never before heard cassette madness of São Paulo’s Bruhahá Babélico and Individual Industry’s ethereal electro pop on the flip.
Circling around the musical projects that emerged out of the art world in Brazilian cities during the late 1980s and 1990s, “Outro Tempo II: Electronic and Contemporary Music from Brazil, 1984-1996” takes anotherdive into the depths of the Brazilian underworld, exploring the rhythms that lurk beneath the Ipanema sunset. It shines light on more illustrious unknowns and on the genre-defying music that maintained asymbiotic, yet uneasy, relationship with mainstream popular culture."
