about

Seu histórico como Mario The Alencar (uma de muitas de suas personificações) mostra um trabalho calcado no folk com ”insights guitarrísticos”, tudo num clima lo-fi, termo que é bagunçado, eu admito, onde a gravação caseira faz questão de mostrar que é feita em casa. Seu novo trabalho vai além, muito além – amadurecido como produtor e compositor ele construiu para mim, sua melhor cria.

Influências de Eliott Smith, Pedro The Lion, Daniel Johnston – Mário tem seu jeito de cantar um pouco desafinado/desleixado com um quê de Stephen Malkmus e Sufjan Stevens que são perceptíveis nesse álbum; disse perceptíveis, não copiados. O cara é ”full noventa” nas suas referências na maioria de seus projetos, mas principalmente como Mario The Alencar, assim também como sua banda Killing Surfers. Desde que aprendeu a lidar com programações de bateria sua evolução é gritante, suas guitarras ora levemente distorcidas ora carregadas de chorus, flangers, delays que lembram outros trabalhos seus como o Sketchquiet.

Amigos, o cara criou seu estilo e isso é um diferencial. Com o auxilio de Reuel Albuquerque guitarrista da banda Jude, colocou de forma sensacional metais e sopros sampleados em algumas faixas, a diversidade do disco atingiu um patamar maior ainda, às vezes lembrando o trabalho solo de Neil Halstead, vocalista do Slowdive/Mojave 3 e o já citado Sufjan Stevens. O disco é produzido pelo próprio Alencar, ele gravou as guitarras, contrabaixo, vocais, baterias e as letras são de sua total autoria.

Destaque para as belíssimas faixas ''Blankets'', ''Pale Clouds'', ''Summer’s Day'' e ''Longing''. Em ''Breakfast Junkie'' e ''Feeling So Blue'' ele brinca de Pavement com um tom debochado/brincalhão. A música ''Hard Country'' que leva a um country mais alternativo com guitarras dissonantes também merece esse destaque.

Uma coisa que observo, esse rapaz também é artista visual e designer gráfico, e o som de seus discos se relacionam com as capas, ora com ilustrações próprias ou com fotos ou montagens. Se a capa é mais sombria seu som será mais ”dark” (haha), se o desenho é mais singelo seu som será mais enxuto e nesse álbum, ele fez uma capa mais colorida, com pequenos detalhes que merecem um olhar mais atento e coincidentemente esse é seu disco mais virtuoso e diversificado até agora. Vai agradar quem curte os referidos artistas – é um som indie (no clichê mesmo), mas é de primeira.

Embarquem nessa viagem deste artista que não tem medo ou vergonha de amadurecer.

For sure dawn will come soon

admit it and be proud that I have learned

When I wake up
your eyes will pounce on me
One more day for us
We are like pale clouds
Raining feelings by the roads

We will be in the air
you can feel the heat in my arms?
We will be in the air
you can feel the heat in my arms? (2x)

Now, let's walk on the waters of your eyes
I know by my side everything is more brilliant

Raining feelings by the roads (...)

Rough winds do shake (2x)

I'm not so bad (2x)

We need a bed tonight
to confess us what we feel so right

Let's love each other (3x)
Track Name: Breakfast Junkie
It's almost one o'clock in the afternoon
and we're still in a room
Let's get up
I'll serve the coffee
and you will wear the robe

Breakfast junkie
We are hungry
Bread with cheese is served

Breakfast junkie
We are hungry
Bread with cheese is served

I feel like never leaving this bed
with you all naked to the sun

I feel like never leaving this bed
with you all naked to the sun

I'll serve the coffee (6x)

It's almost one o'clock in the afternoon
and we're still in a room

I'll serve the coffee
Please, come here

and you will wear the robe?
You are hungry!

I feel like never leaving this bed
with you all naked to the sun

I feel like never leaving this bed
with you all naked to the sun

To the sun
naked (...)
Track Name: Longing
So far we travel together
passed towns and cities, beachs and feelings

There was no great obstacles

Together now, straight traveled
We exceeded limits
We found lives
It's time to follow each trip alone

Will our longing and our hope

Together, straight traveled
We exceeded limits
We found lives
It's time to follow each trip alone

Will our longing and our hope (5 x)
Track Name: Hard Country
Come here babe
Let's dance until it falls
We have full energy for this
I bet our feet are in harmony

Come here babe
Let's dance until it falls
We have full energy for this
I bet our feet are in harmony

Oh darling!
We have so much time to be what we are
The things are really hard to face
But nothing like a good country to cheer us up (2x)
Track Name: Inside
What goes on in your mind when you're weeping?
You can whisper in my ear while you sleep
and feel me inside on your soul (2x)

I really think we're perfect together just like angels
The night comes and we will light candles
to frighten away what scares us

What goes on in your mind when you're weeping?
You can whisper in my ear while you sleep
and feel me inside on your soul (2x)

hold me and feeling my true embrace
while you look at my vivid face
(5x)
