Review by ZowieZiggy
3 stars « Violeta De Outono » is a Brazilian band who played vintage psyche rock in?the late eighties.

I have to say that the music featured is quite acceptable, well performed and quite upbeat like "Luz" which sounds a bit like COTAE (especially during the intro). But it was released some twenty years behind the mood. Still, as an old nostalgic of those days, I can cope very well with this album, but be warned: there is little originality to grab here.

This is also a very confidential band with extremely little exposure on PA (and probably even in Brazil). If ever you're looking for the sound of the late middle sixties (Floyd, Airplane), why don't you give a chance to these "Violeta"? You shouldn't be disappointed with the good guitar and strong rhythm of "Dia Eterno" which is my fave.

A fine ASOS feeling is felt during the longest track (even if it doesn't reach the seven minutes mark) of this offering: "Sombras Flutuantes" is another highlight. The album closes on a good cover of "Tomorrow Never Knows" from the Fab Four.

In all, this is quite a good album for old freaks. Three stars.

5 stars An awesome album that kind of defies timeline placement because of the convergence of several different strains of musical influence. The rhythm section uses simple beats rooted in the minimalism of Punk Rock but more reminiscent of Post-Punk New Wave bands like THE GO-GOs and THE POLICE. In the sounds used for the guitar, bass and occasional keyboard (especially in the live version) I hear the THE DOORS, STEVE HILLAGE, and PINK FAIRIES. In the vocal department Fabio Golfetti is a dead ringer for KHAN's Nick Greenwood. The sound engineering is very clean, with each instrument retaining its autonomous sound, while levels and mix are perfect for the time. The band tends to mix Fabio's vocals a bit low but that's okay. They still come through easily. The rolling bass of Angelo Pastorelli and solid timekeeping of the drummer Claudio Souza lay a great foundation for the stellar vocals and psychedelic guitar play of Fabio. Side two offers us quite a view of Fabio's DAVE GILMOUR/DAEVID ALLEN/STEVE HILLAGE influences--and the sound that he would take ten years to explore with his (and Daevid Allen's) INVISIBLE OPERA COMPANY of TIBET project--especially with "Sombras Flutuantes." Even the bass playing and drumming get a little more exciting/adventurous on side two. The album ends with (yet) another (awesome) cover of The Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows."

This is an outstanding band that has somehow flown under the prog radar for far too long. 2007's Volume 7 and 2012's Espectro (my personal Favorite Album of the Year for that year) are truly not to be missed. I would recommend that you check out any and all of the Violeta de Outono catalog--especially if you're a fan of the Canterbury classic Space Shanty by Khan--and this one--especially if you loved bands like PINK FAIRIES or STEVE HILLAGE.

4 stars I've been digging around a lot lately in the Latin America progressive rock scene. I started listening to The Mars Volta about a year and a half ago. It was that bad that made me take a look into this whole "prog rock" area. And now that I've got pretty good knowledge of what prog rock is, I've ... (read more)
