Ave Sangria - Vendavais (2019)
The second album from this band from Brazil.
The band was a sextet with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, bass, drums, percussion and Portoguese vocals.
Their self-titled debut album saw the light of day in 1974. It has taken the band 35 years to come up with the follow up album. A follow up album to an album who did not set the world on fire. You can read my review here.
So I was very surprised to find this album. An album with more or less the same musicians who recorded the 1974 album too.
The sound is very modern and I believe this album was recorded during the last years or even during the last year.
The music is pretty much the same type of music as on the debut album. A bit glam rock, psych rock, vaudeville, rock, ska, krautrock and folk rock.
Brazil is a colourful country with a lot of colourful music. This album very much mirrors their culture and music.
There is not any progressive rock here. There is not much quality either and I believe this album is for the local consumption only. Which is more than fair.
Those who liked the debut album will like this album too. I did not. Nevertheless, this is a decent enough album.
