Violeta de Outono - Em Toda Parte (2008)
The second album from this band from Brazil.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums and Portoguese vocals.
I reviewed their self-titled debut album for ProgArchives many years ago and I have also reviewed an album for # 1 of this blog. I am now until the end of the year reviewing the remaining Violeta De Outono albums/you can find other Violeta De Outono reviews somewhere else in this blog.
Violeta De Outono was a psych prog band with some hints of Porcupine Tree throughout.
Em Toda Parte is a very much stripped down album with a lot of post-punk influences. It has guitars, a pulsating bass, a steady drum beat and some vocals. That is that.
Naked it is.
There are still some space rock and some local Brazilian influences here. But not many of the latter. The space rock influences is pretty obvious and at time, rampant.
The vocals are pretty good. The music is not the most exciting or good I have heard from this band. It is a bit of a let down, this album.
Nevertheless, it is a decent album which does not really fully represent this band.
