King’s wool – Blue Banisters

Contrary to the current phonographic production, with more singles or EPs of short songs, Lana Del Rey releases her second full album of 2021, with 15 tracks and over an hour in length. The album mixes songs with no beats, just voice and guitar, or voice, piano and strings, with others containing beats or organic drums, but without losing Lana’s indie look. The break that the musician took on social media has a wonderful effect, and her work as a songwriter is getting better and better. It’s hard not to think that one thing is directly linked to another. (Diego Tribuzy)

Marcia Castro – Axis

On the first beat, I saw myself transported to the 90s, the decade of my childhood, which became the height of axé. Nostalgia (and carnival triggers that we didn’t have) aside, the album features great representatives of the rhythm (Margareth Menezes, Daniela Mercury and Ivete) to pop composers (Nando Reis and Emicida), as well as precursors of ancient axé ( Carlinhos Brown) to the new generation (Russo Passapusso). A diverse record, which sings of love to the exaltation of our people and culture. (Rafaela Valverde)

Quantic + Nidia Góngora – Connected Souls

Singer Nidia Góngora, one of the biggest names in Afro-Colombian music today, and English producer Quantic reach their second collaborative effort. after the great Curao (2017) and its very Latin-centered approach, Connected Souls it opens up more room for string arrangements and a more poppy structure, yet remaining true to Nidia’s musical roots. (Vítor Henrique Guimarães)

My Morning Jacket – My Morning Jacket

After The Waterfall II, Jim Jones’ band returned with the namesake My Morning Jacket, an initiative to resume a more organic, rustic and laid-back production and sound. The group has been sewing its discography on the threads of psychedelic folk rock from the 60s. With a strong potential for live performances, this album presents the group’s identity well, bringing lighter and more danceable moments (Love Love Love), bitter (Never in the Real World) and aggressive guitar noises (Complex). (Bruno Maroni)

Caetano Veloso – My coconut

Current as always, more modern than ever. Produced by him and by the young Lucas Nunes, the first new album in almost ten years brings mentions of artists from the old and new generation of Brazilian music in almost every track. Highlight for the presence of Carminho, in You you, by Dora Morelenbaum, in GilGal; and for the song Pardo, known in the voice of Céu, which was arranged by the late Letieres Leite. (Lili Buarque)

Xenia Rubinos – A rose

A rose is the third album by the American singer, daughter of a Puerto Rican mother and a Cuban father – important information to understand where the Latin sound of her work comes from. An urgency seen in the corner shows the artist balancing the vulnerability of emotion together with her sound aesthetic choices, which often collaborate with our feeling that we are following a vibrant work. (Romulo Mendes)

Akokán Orchestra – 16 Rays

The mambo eats loose in 16 Rays, second album by the big band Orquesta Akokán. After being nominated for a Grammy for Best Tropical Album in 2018 for the excellent album of the same name, the Cubans come back a little less energetic and more focused on involvement, on dancing coladinho, and get everyone moving with ten great tracks. Highlight for the cadence of Guajira Del Mar and excited Arrive With My Rumba. (Vítor Henrique Guimarães)

Francisco, the Man – FRANCISCO HOUSE

FRANCISCO HOUSE it’s the band’s third album, which does a great job of throwing various Latin rhythms into the blender and delivering ten songs full of energy and grandiose choruses. It’s music made for several people to sing together, the kind that makes the listener wonder how beautiful it will be to watch it live. The album has several heavy participations such as Céu, Rubel, Dona Onete and Josyara, which enhance the work even more. It is worth mentioning the well thought out cover, with the initials FEH forming the design of a house. (Nuno Nunes)

The War on Drugs – I Don’t Live Here Anymore

After the meticulous A Deeper Understanding (2017), The War on Drugs finally released I Don’t Live Here Anymore, integrating its consistent discography. Adam Grandiciel’s references are still evident – ​​Dylan, Springsteen and 80s rock -, now in more melodic lines (and no less dense for that), with reflective songs (Living Proof), climate (I Don’t Wanna Wait) and contagious choirs (title track). This is a great record for a leisurely walk in the late afternoon or for a long journey on the sunny road. (Bruno Maroni)


Five years after its last release, the acclaimed IV, the wait for a new BBNG album held a promising expectation. Entirely instrumental, Talk Memory sees the Canadian ensemble moving towards their past, leaving vocals aside and rescuing the most atmospheric compositions, while announcing new directions and sonic possibilities. Cohesive and daring, the work acquires a special flavor with the special appearances of renowned talents, such as Arthur Verocai, Laraaji and Karriem Riggins. (Matthew Kerr)

Black Ice Cream – Far In

Far In is the landing after the high flight taken by Roberto Carlos Lange (name behind the project Helado Negro) with the incredible This Is How You Smile, from 2019. On his seventh album, the singer-songwriter puts his feet on the ground over 15 tracks that speak of love and family memories, combined with sensitive and cozy rhythms. It’s hard not to hum along with There Must Be a Song Like You e Gemini and Leo. (Thai Ferreira)

James Blake – Friends that Break Your Heart

The discography of the British producer, songwriter and singer gains its fifth volume, the second since he moved to Los Angeles. His spatial style, with an electronic sound that expands to various corners of the ear, finds songs less challenging than on his first records, but without losing the boldness with which he always sculpts his productions. Less surprising, but still stunning. (André Felipe de Medeiros)

Angelica Garcia – Echo Electric

There are few praises that cannot be paid to Angélica Garcia, an American of Mexican and Salvadoran descent who launched last year Cha Cha Palace, one of the best albums of the year. This time she came with an experimental EP, Echo Electric, with five predominantly acapella tracks that you barely miss the instruments and that sound like a numb night dip in a pool. (Vítor Henrique Guimarães)

Jennifer Souza – Peaceful White Stone

The second solo album by the singer, composer and instrumentalist from Minas Gerais, who is also a member of the bands Moons and Transmissor, arrives with a refinement of jazz elements, without losing her indie and folk side. The album was recorded and produced by Leonardo Marques, on Ilha do Corvo, Jennifer’s former partner. The nine songs are sweet and intense, with thick synths but not overly so, and they connect in their lightness. (Lili Buarque)

Band of Régia – Forróbook Anastácia

At the end of October, this incredible album was released, celebrating the work of the queen of forró Anastácia, author of classics such as Eu Só Quero um Xodó”, bringing various jazz, neosoul and pop influences to this beautiful work, made by the São Paulo group. The singer Kely Marques rocked the interpretations and presents us with both lesser known works and an unpublished song by Anastácia in partnership with the band. Too handsome! (André Moraes)

Magdalena Bay – Mercurial World

It’s strange to think of a project that started with progressive rock references producing a sticky Britney Spears repertoire ready to play on Tik Tok, but that’s what Mica Tenenbaum and Matt Lewin did with Magdalena Bay. Creating a video game-worthy universe retro, the duo debuted this year with Mercurial World, featuring tracks with touches of disco music (Dawning of the Season), synthesizers that scratch the industrial sound (Follow the Leader) and pop verses waiting for crowded festivals (You Lose!).
