Dialeto, The Last Tribe, 2013

dialeto - the last tribeA recent new partner for the blog are Moonjune records. From first sight I think they specialize in more challenging music that is influenced by progressive rock and  or jazz and often from bands under the radar, from places like the Far East, or Southern America. Challenging in the sense that it will take more spins to familiarize yourself with the music.

First example is Dialeto. One of the things I noticed in the artist info is the service to explain the pronunciation of a lot of names. For example the band´s name goes like “dee-ah-leh-to” , just so you know. This group consists of 3 members, Nelson Coelho on guitars, Jorge Pescara on touchguitars (bass) and Miguel Angel on drums and they hail from Sao Paulo, Brasil. No singer, so yes, this is fully fledged instrumental music. And one that takes no prisoners. It is quirky, unpredictable and rambles ahead with a lot of energy. And thus a prime example of an album that takes time. The fact that the production is fairly dry, only adds to that. But when you give it that time, you will discover that all that press talk does make sense. It is adventurous, filled to the brim with ideas and expert musicianship, moods and feel. Slowly the melodies reveal themselves and suck you into the album. So after a while you will say “actually, I really like this”…
