Uncut

With Drama, the world is less an oyster and more a mirror, reflecting the story and vision of this citizen of the world making sonic cinema out of personal exploration.

AllMusic
More than anything, Amarante feels like a Tropicália artist for the 21st century, artfully fusing Brazilian and Latin American traditions to progressive songwriting and arrangements that touch on pop, psychedelia, folk, and rock.

The author claims to be trying to run away from Brazil's musical riches here, yet the result adds to them, a sublime blend of melancholy and desire.

Foi só em 2013 que ele realmente resolveu fazer seu primeiro disco solo, dessa maneira convencional. “Cavalo” veio soturno e ... read more

Hi. Ok, so basically I’m writing this at 4 AM watching Olympic Judo so forgive me it’s a bit incoherent. Anyways, here we go.

In full honesty, I’d never heard of Rodrigo Amarante before a project of his that had an 80/82 rating on AOTY caught my eye. Naturally, that was this project (the score has fallen since then which should actually be a felony). I didn’t immediately listen to it because it was like 6 AM when I saw it but a chance would come soon. Basically, I was ... read more
