Monday's Long Song

Today's long song came via a recommendation from Jesse Fahnestock and is from an album called Os Grandes Sucessos released on Friday by Brazillian artist Fériasdasférias, resident of Sao Paolo. Jaca is a thirteen minute trip, bumping straight into life from the first click of Play. Pumping drums, rising and falling synth patterns, some nicely distorted/ droney melody lines in the background, pitched somewhere between the dancefloor and ambient/ home listening. There's a longish section where it all calms down a bit but the growing intensity around eleven minutes, as the synths start buzzing, brings it all back to the fore- and then suddenly the dam breaks and it all goes mellow again. Lovely stuff. 

There are plenty of other long songs on the album, three clocking in at nine minutes and another breaking the thirteen minute mark. For contrast, Aquecendo is less than two minutes long- variety is the spice of life as they say. Buy Jaca on its own or the whole of Os Grandes Sucessos at Bandcamp. And thank you Jesse for the tip.
