APOLLO NOVE

RES INEXPLICATA VOLANS

2006-02-07

Brazilian producer Apollo Nove has played a crucial supporting role for many of his country's talented young artists, such as the singer Cibelle, who featured his arrangements on her entree into the U.S. market two years ago. On Apollo Nove's own debut, he mixes in disco, psychedelia via an electric sitar, traditional Hawaiian refrains--and also includes a new composition from Rita Lee of the legendary Tropicalia group Os Mutantes. The high point in this quiet collage is Seu Jorge's deep intonation of "Ensaboar Voce" over an acoustic guitar and beats that convey both trippy atmospherics and concerted hesitation.
