Limited Japanese Edition CD with obi strip Release date: 30 June, 2021 Less than 100 available!
Gearbox presents Três, Thiago Nassif's third album on limited Japanese Edition CD with obi strip.
Recorded in Rio De Janeiro, and produced by Arto Lindsay (who also appears as co-writer on several tracks, as well as–inimitably–on guitar, in places), Thiago Nassif's Três strikes a balance between lyrical tunes, rock, electronic music and noise. It was born out of Nassif's desire to distil the content of his lyrics into his instrumentation. The fashioning of timbres, with both analog and digital resources and the use of silence are also integral to the record's overall aesthetic.
With Thiago Nassif handling lead vocals, most guitar and some bass and synth parts, Arto and Nassif carefully selected key players from the cutting edge of Brazil's music scene (a scene heavily indebted to Tropicalia as well as No wave and electronic music) for the ensemble cast. This includes Domenico Lancelloti (collaborator of Moreno Veloso, and former Gal Costa band member), Marcelo Callado (collaborator of Caetano Veloso), Negro Leo, as well as Wyatt Mims (whom Nassif met while living in the US).
