Don L – Itinerary for Aïnouz (Vol. 2)

The second volume of the reverse trilogy is the most complete work in the career of the MC from Fortaleza (“legend”, as Matuê put it), a reference for artists of the genre for at least a decade. Working with an anti-capitalist and revolutionary vision of Brazilian history, Don exercises the imagery, the multi-signification of our ancestry and proposes a vision of the future of reconquest of the country by the hands of the people. The ambition of the proposal finds an answer in all aspects of the album: lyrical, levada, arrangements, beats, guest appearance (from Giovani Cidreira to Rael) and production (from the award-winning Nave). Call it a masterpiece without fear. (Eduardo Yukio Araujo)

Duda Brack – Glass shard

After releasing some singles showing what was coming, Duda Brack presents us with her second full album. A plural album, with many references, ranging from funk carioca to grunge, and that brings great collaborations, by names like Ney Matogrosso, BaianaSystem and Lúcio Maia. Songs with beautiful poetry, melodies and harmonies that consolidate Duda as one of the great names in contemporary Brazilian music. (Diego Tribuzy)

Silk Sonic (Bruno Mars + Anderson .Paak) – An Evening with Silk Sonic

The meeting of two giants could not result in anything other than a monumental work. The duo delved into 1970s soul and black music to create an instant R&B classic, with razor-sharp vocals, impeccable percussion, grandiose arrangements and good humor. Perhaps the greatest achievement was reviving the organic sound of the 70s at a time when pop music is dominated by the 1980s aesthetic. The anxiety caused by the eight months of waiting since the release of the first single has paid off. (Nuno Nunes)

Jaffar Bambirra – the boy who never loved

Jaffar Bambirra’s lyrical sensibility overflows with softness and is brilliantly exposed on the debut album by the carioca. Inviting and affable sounds, inspired by Brazilians, guide the eight songs on the album – from acoustic to energetic rhythms. The affective construction is completed by an equally delicate voice that takes the listener to an atmosphere covered with sensations. (Isabela Guiduci)

César Lacerda – Nations, Men or Lions

Your new work has a very interesting title, it is not homonymous to any of the songs on the album. the tracks Nations’ park (with the participation of Aline Frazão), Anthropocene e A Lion’s Wishes (with Marcelo Jeneci) make direct mention of the themes, but when we listen carefully, all the tracks unfold this plot. He transitions between beats and electronic ambiences – like change life – to songs with band in vibe eighties, like the sun that everything feels (with Malvina Lacerda). Worth listening to! (André Moraes)

Courtney Barnett – Things Take Time, Take Time

In her third solo album, Courtney Barnett shows once again that she’s great at giving advice, especially those you didn’t know you needed. Although the album is not very long and presents an instrumental simplicity, Things Take Time, Take Time stands out for its compositions, which embrace you with the care and wisdom of an older sister. (Thai Ferreira)

Melanie Charles – Y’all Don’t (Really) Care About Black Women

The multi-artist and multi-instrumentalist, born and raised in Brooklyn and with Haitian descent, expands her jazz experiments even more creatively and preciously and this time reimagines some songs already known in the voices of renowned black singers such as Nina Simone, Betty Carter and Ella Fitzgerald. The result is a sound that draws attention for its originality and ambition. (Vítor Henrique Guimarães)

Sky – a taste of sunshine

2021 brought a Heaven reflecting on their compositions and also their influences. She released the album in June Acoustic, an overview of the repertoire of his authorial records in an intimate reinterpretation. a taste of sunshine it goes further and shows the composer as an interpreter of an amalgamation of musical memories of her formation, from João Gilberto to Beastie Boys, passing through Fiona Apple and Milton Nascimento. The greatest merit here is revealing that the artist has enough reverence to nod to the composers of these songs, but, at the same time, she reinterprets them with personality and talent. (Eduardo Yukio Araujo)

Parcels – Day/Night

The cover of the German-Australian quintet’s second LP brings a sense of journey. The album transitions between relaxed and dancing, contemplative and epic moments. Congas, string suits, detailed piano lines and the band’s delightful vocal harmonies make all the difference here. Parcels used seclusion time by preparing a reflective story about how the day-night duality reflects our condition. (Bruno Maroni)

Adele – 30

Those who follow Adele and are almost the same age group have been seen on each album. In 30, I managed to see myself exactly the way I reached the age of thirty. Everything changes, including our view of ourselves. We see ourselves and the world with new eyes. We recognize our mistakes, and that’s the time to start changing. With a good dose of despondency, resignation and wine, Adele continues to wait for love in 30. (Rafaela Valverde)


In his new mixtape, Aminé continues the experimentation that began in 2018, with ONEPOINTFIVE. After playing on heavier themes last year with the album Limbo, the rapper is back to having fun with his own music. With a more pop production, Aminé is sharp and ironic in his rhymes. The highlight is the track Charmander, which sums up the vibrant, uncompromising tone of the record. (Guilherme Gurgel)

BADSIST – Ghetto Elegance

The plurality of female freedom was rarely presented in such a spontaneous and honest way as on the debut album by the producer from São Paulo, which has been consolidating itself as one of the most important names in Brazilian music. With guest appearances ranging from fellow countrymen Jup do Bairro and Ventura Profana to Ugandan MC Yallah and a colorful palette of references, the album is cohesive and delicious. (Vítor Henrique Guimarães)


On their fourth studio album, “post-post-punk” band IDLES experiment with new airs beyond their characteristically fierce and explosive sound. CRAWLER preserves the rawness and brutality of its predecessors, but introduces a dark and introspective atmosphere to the band’s repertoire, the result of sound experiments and the personal lyrics of vocalist Joe Talbot. (Marília Ferruzzi)

Daparte – Fugitive

Immersed in the seas of love and relationships, Daparte released the second album of her career. With the new project, the band from Minas Gerais presents the best in discography so far, especially for the admirable consistency, established over the thirteen songs, which reinforces the light and well-constructed pop identity. In a mix of pulsations, the disc plays with dancing and decelerated sounds. (Isabela Guiduci)

FBC & VHOOR – Home

Restless, the rapper FBC from Minas Gerais continues exploring possibilities on his new album in partnership with producer VHOOR: Home revives the Miami Bass aesthetic and its most fruitful aspect, the funk carioca. Much more than a revivalist exercise, the duo update elements of the sound of yesteryear without ever mischaracterizing the source. in the universe of Home, the multitude of aspects of favela life are present, encapsulated in 27 minutes of music built with the care of an artisan. (Eduardo Yukio Araujo)

Malcolm Jiyane Tree-O – CREATOR

South African jazz is one of the most unfairly underrated scenes in music and the beauty of this album is just one of the many proofs released in recent years. From the cover to the paths opened in the mind by each solo, the album sometimes sounds like a charm, a very personal and convincing joke, of an artist who is innocent of nothing and a band that knows very well what they want to show. (Vítor Henrique Guimarães)

Nation of Language – A Way Forward

Nostalgic right away. On the second album of their career, the New York trio does not spare the resources available to create a futuristic retro world. The references to new wave and 80s synth-pop are crystal clear, but the good execution, with a contemporary approach, frees the album from the feeling of having stopped in time. Highlight for the dense fabrics of synthesizers and basses. (Bruno Maroni)

Branco Castle – Niska: A Message for Times of Emergency

With electronic elements and without losing the lyricism of his songs, Castello Branco brings the best of his sound to this new work. The title is a reference to a book that was remarkable in his childhood. This album invites Duda Beat, Mahmundi, Lazuli and Rubel to this particular universe. The experience of this sound is complete with a chat with the artist on the Podcast Música Pavê. (André Moraes)

Owl BC1 – futuristic Brazil

Brasil Futurista walks through Brazilian signs and sounds, an important record for its time, and shows the versatility of Coruja BC1, which reframes its flow and aggressive verses of yesteryear, adapting them to the tonalities that the sound proposal of the record requires. Another favorable point of the work is the diversity of participations, such as Margareth Menezes, Jonathan Ferr, Larissa Luz and Salgadinho, passing by Lino Krizz, Anchietx and Lúcio Maia, in addition to Jair Oliveira, RDD and Ed City. (Romulo Mendes)

Myele Manzanza – Crisis & Opportunity, Vol. 2 – Peaks

In the second volume of his project for artistic improvement during the pandemic (almost all recorded in a jam session), the drummer, beatmaker and producer from New Zealand selects another instrumentalist team to make the border between jazz and electronic music almost microscopic, bringing inspiration even from bossa nova – Eumir Deodato would be proud to hear the track When We Could Dance Together.
