Rodrigo Amarante | Hourglass

February 27, 2014 at 1:54 pm Leave a comment

Brazilian producer singer-songwriter Rodrigo Amarante is officially releasing his solo record, “Cavalo”, on May 6th in the U.S. and Canada via I-Tunes and Easy Sound Recording Company. He’s posted a single called “Hourlgass”, a hyperkenetic groove about the passage of time. I’ve read about his involvement with a group, Little Joy, and Devendra Banhart, but the first I’d heard of his music was via a Take Out show thanks to the French website La Blogothèque. But since then I ran into this track, “Hourglass”, on soundcloud, and it made me immediately think of Arto Lindsay’s more interesting modern pieces, even before I found out Amarante is Brazilian. Listening to “Hourglass” made me curious, so I read more about Amarante being part of a band named Orquestra Imperial that features Caetano Veloso’s son, Moreno. This six-degrees-of-separation might not make much sense to you, but for me it says it all. Here’s a musician that not only plays his own brand of modern music, but also has deeper connections to the past. He’s surrounded by musicians who value craft, which says a lot about Amarante, and it’s evident in this stylish, idiosyncratic single.
