MetaL MetaL

A 11 track brazil album (49m 9s) — released April 7th 2014 on Mais Um

"Meta Meta are a raucous trio.... twisting Brazilian music with bursts of static and noise" THE WIRE

"The music echoes anything from punk rock to freeform jazz and samba" (4/5) THE GUARDIAN

"An extremely sophisticated mix of jazz, funk and art-rock.... the first really serious contender for album of the year" (5/5) THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

"Semi-improvised and raw, bursting with vim and surprise" UNCUT

This is the 'Afro-punk' sound of Metá Metá - Vocalist Juçara Marçal, saxophonist Thiago França and guitarist Kiko Dinucci – a trio of Sao Paulo's most sought after musicians, struggling to survive the 21st century sonic schizophrenia of their home city Sao Paulo.

Over a squalling mess of improvised guitar and sax, MetaL MetaL mixes influences ranging from Afrobeat to Afrosambas, punk rock to be-bop to create chaotic, life-affirming music that explodes with the rage of The Stooges and Sonic Youth, the spirituality of John Coltrane and Sun Ra and the wild, avant-garde instrumentation of contemporary experimental-psychedelic outfits such as Melt Yourself Down and Goat.
