To make “Flores & cores”, the 27th album in his career, Guilherme Arantes revisited and updated songs that he did in the 1970s and 1980s without losing the essence of them. The result is a record that is essentially pop-retro. Guilherme Arantes looks back to the past, but doesn’t get lost in nostalgia. And the happy and sunny atmosphere of the record makes you realize he is quite enthusiastic about this work.

BEL is a musical project of Rio de Janeiro singer, composer and visual artist Bel Baroni. Her debut work, “Quando brinca”, presents us songs with colourful and sunny tones, but with serious themes.

This was a long awaited work in the Brazilian rap scene, because of Flora Matos’ singles and her collaborations with other artists. After delays and problems, the rapper finally released “Eletrocardiograma”, which is composed of 12 cohesive songs.

Pabllo Vittar
“Vai passar mal”

Pabllo Vittar was one of the biggest pop phenomena in Brazil in 2017. “Vai passar mal” is her debut album and presents an extremely pleasant mix of funk, arrocha, rap, samba and pop with a Brazilian flavor.

My Magical Glowing Lens <BR> “Cosmos”

My Magical Glowing Lens

The mind behind My Magical Glowing Lens is Gabriela Deptulski, who since 2013 has drawn attention to her psychedelic songs. “Cosmos” is her first full album, now with the formation of a band. But the sound recipe follows the same path: lo-fi and craft songs full of colors, noises, voices and lysergic ambiances. A huge trip.

Linn da Quebrada <BR> “Pajubá”

Linn da Quebrada

Linn da Quebrada made perhaps the most cheeky and political album in Brazil in 2017. In “Pajubá”, she mixes rap, funk, electronic and even a little rock to sing about the difficulty and reality of being gay and transexual in the Brazilian peripheries. In addition, her work is also a visual album, in which each of the songs has gained a clip of its own. All the art of Linn da Quebrada serves to highlight the minorities who seek space and voice. She is a necessary artist.

Graxa <BR> “A concorrência é demais!”

“A concorrência é demais!”

Maybe Graxa is one of the most visceral and defiant artists in the city of Recife. His previous two albums (“Molho” from 2013 and “Aquele disco massa” from 2015) already showed the criticism of everything that seemed to bother the musician. “A concorrência é demais!” is more direct, dealing with the disillusions and the difficulties of being an independent artist in Brazil. All without losing his rock and roll vein.

Cícero <BR> “Cícero & Albatroz”

“Cícero & Albatroz”

Until now, Cícero’s discography has been more or less cohesive. But now the musician seems to enter a new phase of his career. “Cícero & Albatroz” includes the name of the artist plus the name of the band that accompanies him on stage. Now Cícero is more collective than intimate – as it was in previous works. And this time the singer and composer presents songs that make a kind of critical reflection on life in society and the big cities.

Xenia França <BR> “Xenia”

Xenia França

Vocalist of the group Aláfia, Xenia França transits for soul, jazz, R&B and references to the African culture in “Xenia”, her first solo LP. The sound may seem quieter than the work she does with Aláfia, but the themes of the lyrics continue to address issues of gender, race, and inequality. All expressed in the singer’s unmistakable voice.

Don L <BR> “Roteiro pra Aïnouz, Vol. 3”

Don L
“Roteiro pra Aïnouz, Vol. 3”

Don L is a restless artist who seems to challenge everything or everyone. “Roteiro pra Aïnouz, Vol. 3” is part of a trilogy that begins at the end (the other two volumes haven’t yet been released). The name of the album is a reference to the filmmaker Ceará Karim Aïnouz. We can interpret this as a search for Don L wanting to portray strong characters and stories through his art (the music), just as Karim Aïnouz does in his films.

Chico Buarque <BR> “Caravanas”

Chico Buarque

Chico Buarque is one of the great artists and composers of the history of Brazilian music. “Caravanas” is the 38th studio album of his career. There are nine short songs that make it a good record in the discography of the artist. In addition, the song that gives its name to the album is probably one of the best songs released in Brazil in 2017. Mainly because of the lyrics, which is inspired by a social conflict in Rio de Janeiro, when the police tried to stop boys from a periphery who wanted to go to a beach in the South Zone of the city.

Domenico Lancellotti
“Serra dos órgãos”

Domenico Lancellotti continues his search for the unexpected in this second work. He is an artist who seems to have no fear of playing with new possibilities even without knowing what kind of possibility it is. “Serra dos órgãos” is a serene work within his musical experimentation with arrangements of orchestras and influences of bossa nova and even rock.

Paulo Miklos is a ex-member of the Brazilian rock band Titãs. “A gente mora no agora” is his third solo album (the two previous works are from 1994 and 2001) and presents a dialogue with the old and the new generation of Brazilian music. This shows in partnerships with new people like Tim Bernardes, Emicida, Russo Passapusso, Céu, Silva and Mallu Magalhães. And veterans of Brazilian music as Erasmo Carlos, Nando Reis, Guilherme Arantes and Arnaldo Antunes. A contemporary album that is not stuck in Miklos’ past.

Momo <BR> “Voá”


Momo is the stage name of Marcelo Frota. He has very interesting works on his career, always with a particular touch. And this is no different with “Voá”, which was recorded in Portugal and has something of that country in its DNA. Produced by Marcelo Camelo from Banda do Mar, this record is a kind of a sound chronicle about the lovely climate of Portugal. You may also feel this when you hear “Voá”.

Curumin <BR> “Boca”


“Boca” is Curumin’s most audacious record. He can be experimental and at the same time have a popular and dancing appeal. In just over 35 minutes, Curumin is able to address issues such as politics, relationships, social inequality and sexuality in songs that seem like chronicles of Brazilian life in this troubled period of our recent history. All this without leaving aside the dancing appeal of the album. A rare work.

Matéria Prima is one of the main names of rap made in the state of Minas Gerais. He was part of the collective Quinto Andar and is a member of the Zimun group. “2 atos” is his first full album and demonstrates a great artist in his songs and arrangements. The theme of the work revolves around personal stories and issues related to Brazilian middle-class citizens. The musical production of Gui Amabis seems to make everything clear and serene, even though the themes of the songs are not always like this. A beautiful work.

Rakta <BR> “Oculto pelos seres”

“Oculto pelos seres”

The sound aggressiveness of the Rakta group is still evident in this new EP. “Oculto pelos seres” has only five dense, obscure and sometimes melancholic songs. This all shows an extremely powerful trio with their instruments and their artistic intentions. It is very difficult to hear this EP and to remain indifferent to the sensations it brings to your body. Try it.

Otto <BR> “Ottomatopeia”


Otto is a versatile and unique artist. “Ottomatopeia” is his sixth studio album and maintains his best qualities by combining references such as rock, brega and electronic, that give the artist’s work identity. Mixing all this, Otto manages to have a pop footprint involving songs that talk about love and what’s good and bad behind that feeling. To listen, think and dance. At the same time.

Mopho <BR> “Brejo”


Mopho is a band from the state of Alagoas. The appeared in 1996 making a psychedelic rock that drinks directly from the source of the 1960s and 1970s. Despite their long road, “Brejo” is only the fourth album in the band’s career. But it still retains the strength and beauty of melodic and hallucinatory songs, while being mature and pleasing to the ears.

Felipe S <BR> “Cabeça de Felipe”

Felipe S
“Cabeça de Felipe”

Felipe S is vocalist of the band Mombojó and this is his first solo work. Produced in his house, “Cabeça de Felipe” is like a heap of references that are part of Felipe’s head. But not messy. Everything seems to be well organized even though it may put several references together into one song. This makes each piece an individual universe and turns the LP into a unique and interesting galaxy.

Luiza Lian
“Oyá tempo”

In 2015, Luiza Lian presented her first work, which was quite organic. Now the singer completely reinvents herself on this second album. “Oyá tempo” is quite experimental with its various electronic possibilities, adding even elements of rap. To further represent the experimentalism of the work, “Oyá tempo” is accompanied by a visual album that assists in this transcendental trip and thought-provoking proposed by Luiza.

niLL <BR> “Regina”


“Regina” is an album dedicated to the deceased mother of rapper niLL. With influences from the vaporwave movement, interferences from WhatsApp audio conversations and videogame samples, niLL has created a unique work. On this record, it is as if the rapper did an investigation of his own mind, taking us very close to his thoughts, fears, criticism and anguish. And this mix demonstrates the unusual talent of niLL, a name to pay attention to.

Thiago Elniño <BR> “A rotina do pombo”

Thiago Elniño
“A rotina do pombo”

Thiago Elniño has more than a decade of career behind him, but only in 2017 he released his first studio album. Making boom rap influenced by afrobeat, the rapper created a conceptual work in which he approaches the question of race in Brazil. The album describes the routine of an unnamed black character before he reaches the age of 30. Elniño’s story is raw and cruel. But necessary to discuss the issues of social prejudice.

Mallu Magalhães <BR> “Vem”

Mallu Magalhães

“Vem” is the fourth studio album by the singer-songwriter Mallu Magalhães. And this is the best work of this artist, who now seems to seek for very deep references in the Brazilian music – but without ever losing her characteristic pop appeal. Mallu is safer with her voice on this album – which is produced by Marcelo Camelo, her companion in the Banda do Mar group.

“Modo avião”

“Modo avião” is a kind of sound experience. Lucas Santtana proposes that people stop in the middle of the chaotic day-to-day running to hear and contemplate the world around, without using the technology to do so. The album, whose English name is “Airplane mode”, uses instruments and voices to tell a love story coupled with reflections on the daily life of contemporary life. Listening to the album in its entirety is at least a totally different experience than usual.

“Sambas do absurdo”

“Sambas do absurdo” is a singular artistic work that emerged inspired by the existentialism of the book “The Myth of Sisyphus” by Albert Camus. Rodrigo Campos decided to face the absurd as a theme for the album and invited the artist Nuno Ramos to compose the lyrics, which are sung by the exceptional voice of Juçara Marçal. The project also has Gui Amabis on beats for these songs that sound timeless and unique.

Nina Becker <BR> “Acrílico”

Nina Becker

Nina Becker’s new work is a kind of samba-jazz, in which the singer put voices with pianos, sweet melodies and contained guitars. Interesting is that the sonority of “Acrílico” really refers to the colors black and white, as we can see in the cover. Another interesting question is the incredible team of Brazilian artists who collaborate with Nina in the compositions of the songs: Jonas Sá, Kassin, Thalma de Freitas, Romulo Fróes, Negro Leo, Laura Erber, Natércia Pontes, Moreno Veloso and Rubinho Jacobina.

Boogarins <BR> “Lá vem a morte”

“Lá vem a morte”

This is the third album by the band Boogarins from Goiânia. And it’s as if the group was diving into psychedelia. There are eight songs in almost 30 minutes of dense sounds with overlays, distortions and electronic experiments. In addition, the themes of the tracks are also psychedelic and even philosophical, such as the insensitivity of the current world, questions about absolute truths – and death. However, it’s a record to listen and travel without fear inside your mind.

Aláfia <BR> “SP não é sopa”

“SP não é sopa”

The third album of the group Aláfia dialogues perfectly with the current cultural and political moment of Brazil. This happens with focus on the city of São Paulo, with its problems and the complex relationship of the city itself with its inhabitants. In “SP não é sopa” we are presented to the chaos of São Paulo, but ’cause it is a great metropolis it is evident that we can take the interpretation of his songs to any big city around the world.

“Sintetizamor” is the first album made in partnership between João Donato and Donatinho, who are father and son. João Donato is a Brazilian music legend with many classic records in his career. And Donatinho has worked with many new artists from Brazil in recent years. The union between the two resulted in a record influenced by the synths and electric pianos of the 1980s.

“Língua franca” is the meeting between Brazil and Portugal promoted by two rappers from each country. From Brazil we have Emicida and Rael. From Portugal we have Capicua and Valete. 10 songs transpose between local and universal themes to any part of the world.

“Em busca da viagem eterna”

The psychedelic journey of the band Bike continues on this second album. But now it’s even freer than it was on the first record – “1943” from 2015. “Em busca da viagem eterna” attempts to get the listener to the cosmos along with distortions, vocals in echoes and different timbres. All this mixed with shoegaze and garage rock. Now it’s as if the band was expanding their musical universe, as well as expanding our mind.

“Espiral de ilusão”

The fourth studio work of rapper Criolo is an album completely devoted to samba. Much more than a reference, “Espiral de ilusão” is a work totally cohesive with the sound and textual aspects of this genre. In addition, Criolo introduces us to the song “Menino mimado” and a phrase that sums up the Brazilian government and another senseless ruler of the American continent: “Spoiled boys can’t rule the nation”.
