the opening track, "joao 9:6-16" starts off with a low drone and whispering, nice and mysterious, then takes on electronic glitches and feedback. but there is something different here from Bemonio: this track evolves into something else, and while that is true for all songs and all music here, within the album "lodo" it is the evolution of sound and not an idea.
the second track "cuspiuna terra, e com a saliva fez lodo os olhos do cego" starts out with what feels like freeform drums reminiscent of a secluded underground jazz session which then entwines with a doom feel enclosing you within a new illicit music session.
with the third track "vai, lava-te no tanque de siloe" it is back to an evolution of sound; the drums are angrier but more cohesive, less freeform but the feedback evolves itself through the intricate layers of its own evolution beginning in an almost electronic manner to eventually become angry feedback that snaps at you as it reaches the end and refuses to give up so much so that track four "e era sabado, quando jesus fez o lodo e lhe abriu os olhos" is a continuation moving once again into freeform jazz drums mixed liberally with doom and drone and all aspects in between.
once again Bemonio have released something that makes me wonder if this is planned, mused and contemplated or crafted within the moment and captured before it is lost forever. this isn't delicate; it is prone to moments of anger, violence, and spontaneity. it doesn't appear at first to be complex but holds your attention for the duration and you'll discover a new layer or odd sound with each listen, giving it another dimension. it is full of detail, submersive, disciplined. it leaves me wanting more... (please excuse any spelling mistakes on the titles)
