Nara Leao

One cool thing about working around music is that you get to listen to a wide array of different types of music. The new reissue of 1970s compilation from Brasilian tropicalist Nara Leao made my day on a slushy tuesday in Dumbo.
a little reseach, digs up this excellent record cover design.

No, more drama.

The same dudes who brought you the insane 424 Sound System mix have taken their game to even insaner-er levels with “Trapped In The Closet 1-5, All At Once”. You roll your eyes now, but wait until you hear/see — it’s totally hypnotic, disorienting, fascinating. Like, this is what came into dude’s head when he conceived of the series, and then he went in and untangled the whole mess. The ending is especially intense, the way the whole thing climaxes (pause) with him moaning “Robert, Robert, Robert…” can’t be pure coincidence… right?
