Comment: undoubtedly it is a mind-boggling issue though while listening to it for the first time it might take some minutes to align yourself to the austere and somehow buried level of this 10-track issue. It is partly music and partly not in many appearances. Firstly, the artist from Sào Paolo, Brazil exploits recorded field sounds and recites and chants her poetry in an awkward yet suggestive way. Indeed, it could be tagged as lo-fi music but the tag for figuring out the artist's intention and goal does make a little sense. Given that there are represented infantile melody snippets being mixed up into hiss laden soundscapes which would pop out and then lay out from unknown sources then the tag primitive music might even be a more proper definition. For a music listener, to listen to this issue is like being a part of everyday life where the ups and downs come in succession and more brighter moments are varied with more depressing ones. The Brazil artist's music is a subject to an intersection of sound poetry, warped electronic effects, microscopic noises and hazy flickers. In a nutshell, this intriguing issue is a part of an intriguing Brazil imprint, Malware.
