RELAX (LP)
12" Vinyl D Pre sale
luaka bop presents this album from contemporary brazilian legend kassin. one of the leading producers and instrumentalists in brazilian music, alexandre kassin has produced roughly 100 records for singers, including marisa monte and bebel gilberto, recorded with sean ohagan (stereolab, high llamas) and made a full album based on nintendo game boy sounds. he has played bass for caetano velosos live shows and conceptualized the orchestra imperial band. his new album, relax, is rooted in dreams and surrealism, yet grounded enough to reach listeners where they are. across 11 tracks, kassin flirts with latin rhythms, brazilian pop, and straight-ahead soul, using this varied stylistic array to tell imagined tales of death, drug usage, politics and fate. theres a dichotomy to relax, with kassins arrangements often feeling bright and danceable, yet with incredibly sullen themes. its a record that speaks directly to the yin and yang of everyday life, and the uncertainty that comes with simply existing.

BRAZIL CLASSICS 1: BELEZA TROPICAL (LP + MP3)
12" Vinyl lp UK 22.11.17
these songs represent but a small sampling of the fruits of a flowering in brazilian creativity. the innovations in structure, lyrics and arrangements, combined with a very restrained but heartfelt intensity, are unique to brazilian pop music… and in their own way, are as radical, seductive and beautiful as the best english language pop.
the vinyl release includes a download code.

THE MYSTERIOUS TALE OF HOW I SHOUTED WRONG-EYED JESUS! (LP + MP3)
12" Vinyl lp UK 22.11.17
steeped in the influence of flannery o’connor and tom waits, the album wrong-eyed jesus revealed jim white as a spiritual anatomist of the american south. no such place ups the ante revealing a broader, more diverse collection of songs about rage and redemption, depravity and dreams, dead cars and broken hearts. with tracks produced by morcheeba, sade co-founder andrew hale, and q-burns abstract message, along with stellar remixes by japanese underground guru, sohichiro suzuki of world standard and yellow magic orchestra fame, jim finds himself reveling in the unlikely zeitgeist of the new album. “this is a crackpot love letter to all those lost souls out there like me who won’t settle for wrong, but have no clue how to get to right.”

ANYTHING YOU SOW (LP)
12" Vinyl D 18.12.15
kicking off with the 12 minute epic when the going is smooth & good, which was recently used in keiran hebdens essential mix, this is a truly pioneering piece of disco/funk with a clear message in the music. dipping in and out of intricate percussion workouts and driven by bleepy synth grooves, it has an iressistable lo fi charm. followed by the uptempo this kind of world , another percussive electronic workout that begs the question have you ever seen this kind of world? . the b side sees the lp s tempo drop down a notch with the lp title track anything you sow . the lp finishes with a beautiful electronic ballad every day . this album is an exceptional piece of music, that s all killer, and you ll have never heard anything like it... it will appeal to fans of nigerian afro funk & electronic disco... don t let this fantastic album pass you by!

luaka bop presents this album from contemporary brazilian legend kassin. one of the leading producers and instrumentalists in brazilian music, alexandre kassin has produced roughly 100 records for singers, including marisa monte and bebel gilberto, recorded with sean o’hagan (stereolab, high llamas) and made a full album based on nintendo game boy sounds. he has played bass for caetano veloso’s live shows and conceptualized the orchestra imperial band. his new album, relax, is rooted in dreams and surrealism, yet grounded enough to reach listeners where they are. across 11 tracks, kassin flirts with latin rhythms, brazilian pop, and straight-ahead soul, using this varied stylistic array to tell imagined tales of death, drug usage, politics and fate. theres a dichotomy to relax, with kassins arrangements often feeling bright and danceable, yet with incredibly sullen themes. its a record that speaks directly to the yin and yang of everyday life, and the uncertainty that comes with simply existing.
