Go! - VII Encontro Anual-Luz de Naves Interglaticasdotdotdot
artworkBrazil's Go! are an instro band with a sound rooted in punk that incorporates surf and rock instros with electro tweakiness and Theramin. Angular and somewhat melodic, mostly dark music with some interesting twists.

Track by Track Review


Galaxy 666 / Hipocondria Espancial dotdotdot
Surf Punk (Instrumental)

Electro tonal progressions right outta your local radio Shack keyboard scare you into really worrying about this disc... but, then a Spanish conversation between a man and a woman weaves in and out of an interesting surf instro with double picked guitar balanced against vibrato guitar, with theremin wails warbling in the background.

Turbodamorte dotdotdotdot
Surf Punk (Instrumental)

"Tubo da Morte" a.k.a. "Turbodamorte" is a fast punk drummed instro with a speedy lead line and electro noises interspersed. dark and gloomy, yet melodic. Hopelessness surely lurks here.

Hello Computer dotdot
Electronic (Instrumental)

A refined voice says "Hello Computer," then tweaky electro fifties sci-fi noises...

O Espiao Que Surfava dotdotdotdot
Surf Punk (Instrumental)

Very aggressive edgy guitar over punk drums, based on a relentless progression. Melodic in places, and satisfying in about 1:45. Very modern, with lots of anger in very dark waters.

Surf (Instrumental)

Soft tones, a pleasant progression, a rainy afternoon melancholy mood, and tweaky voices in your head utterings. This is a very nice track, just strange enough to capture your attention. The theremin warbles weaving in and out add an uneasy sense to it. Cool!

Out at about 3:30 is a lo-fi live recording of what sounds like a slower "Turbodamorte." Hooky and less abrasive.
