4 stars What a fantastic, fanatic eclecticism! A promising Brazilian project DEUS NUVEM have finally launched such a magical trip as their first mini-album titled "Waving At Us, We've Provoked" for free. ;)

The first "Provoking" throws us post-rock-ish fuzzy freaky drone tips along with slender rhythms and clear voices. These stuffs are comfortable for us, and in the following "Death Of The I" tribal grooves / ethnic melody lines featuring mellow violin sounds are very impressive. As if we would lean ourselves upon a quiet, cool river flow, this sound combination of brilliant synthesizer, beautiful violin, and stable horn ones takes us into a dream.

On the other hand, in the third track "Tri'ngulo" such a strong horn section knocks our brain with their intriguing heavy beats. Let me say their complex tune lines in the former phrase can be effective as spiced for seasoning upon afternoon delight, but in the middle part this complexity goes forward aggressively. The latter stable texture reminds us the end of one's life.

After a short tribalism "Day 2", powerful beat requiem with persistently deep horn machine gun attacks us. Indeed in their masterpiece suite "Red Sun", we would hear innovative rock dizziness, but they play along with relaxed, refined, and slender atmosphere, no confuse. Yes just like King Crimson's album "Starless And Bible Black", experimental and improvised beat fractures go around us again and again.

The last "Omniverse" can be called this superb innovation can be suitable for the finale of this album. Very psychedelic, sticky sound moisture veil us completely. Not so dissonant nor deep but we can grab what they'd want to do, via this 5-minute explosive versatile musical universe.

So addictive, please get immersed in their mysterious marsh.

4 stars Deus Nuvem (God Cloud) is a Brazilian band that is really new. Their focus is to do a sound that is Experimental in all senses. The band was born in Rio De Janeiro in 2010 and it's a trio Leo M Pe (bass clarinet, guitars and synthesizers), Thiago 'Dagotta' Cereno (drums) and Fernando César (bass), but they also have some input in their debut EP Waving At Us, We've Provoked (2012) from André Fernandez (violin), Michel Moro (alto saxophone) and Pedro Cabral (keyboards). Not just that, many other musicians are here Iuri Nicolsky (saxophone), Antonio Neves (trombone), Lui Coimbra (cello), Bárbara Coelho (vocals) e Jéssica Araújo (percussion).

Waving At Us, We've Provoked (2012) was released only in digital format as a free download album in their website in February 2012. In the album the Brazilian band doesn't focus in one single style of Prog Rock, in fact their focus is to play all styles. Experimental, Fusion, Post-Rock, Jazz, Nu-Jazz and Psychedelia are some of their influences.

Waving At Us, We've Provoked (2012) is one of the most interesting albums that came from Brazil in 2012, one of the most interesting plays from last year.

If you don't know the band yet go to and listen to it on their website of download it for free.

Highly recommended.
