Bandcamp is again kindly waiving their fees for 24h during May Day, so that artists can receive more money with their digital music sales or merch.
At Rebel Up we combined this with a 15% discount action that will run for the whole weekend until sunday midnight 25 May. Check our Bandcamp page and claim your discount.
And we have another May Day special >
a new digital only release on our label by Satanique Samba Trio titled “Instant Karma”.
Satanique Samba Trio’s most recent release WAS SUPPOSED TO BE the first liquid album in history: taking advantage of the short-lived exposure provided by Instagram Stories, your favorite Brazilian experimental quintet (yes, quintet), known for its brief-but-complex-deconstructed-Brazilian-rhythm-pieces, presented the world with a 15-second lo-fi tune every day throughout the month of February 2019. It’s a true trip into the tropi-concrete world of SS3.
In accordance with Instagram Stories’ rules, each song was available online for exact 24 hours, only to disappear FOREVER, leaving a faint sketch of Brazil’s musical diversity on the ethereal surface of your memory. Ground breaking, right? Yeah, but only for a year or so, as illegally downloaded versions of the tunes started to pop up around the Russian web. Well, it was fun while it lasted.
The good news is now you can have Instant Karma in your HD as a chock-full digital package. Let it drip.
Satanique Samba Trio: it’s not really a trio and they don’t play samba but they are quite satanic…. this mythical Brazilian band from the capital Brasilia performs funny, pertinent and surprising sound collages, an ongoing investigation into the aesthetic deconstruction of Brazil’s most popular musical traditions.
Friday September 13th, 2019 will be remembered in Music History for the release of their new 10inch vinyl “Mais Bad”, a conceptual sequel of the 2015 release “Mó Bad”. “Mais Bad” is a new collection of low fidelity bagatelles, forged into existence by Satanique Samba Trio’s thirst for aesthetical deconstruction. All instruments in this 10-track vinyl have been recorded with the same cheap cell phone from the early 2000’s. It is meant to sound desperate, harsh and absolutely surreal. A little over the top, maybe? Yeah, but hey: that’s just how a country in crisis should look and sound like. Right?
Listen here to “Mais Bad” on our Bandcamp, and see new videoclip below, warning: graphic medical images 🙂
