CD Reviews

A Suprisingly Good Find!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first stumbled on to Fila Brazilia on a 'Groove Salad' stream playing Phosphorus' "Asthma (Fila Brazillia Mix)" from their excellent "Brazilification - Remixes 95-99" album (which covers remixes for artists like Radiohead, the Irresistable Force and David Byrne).
They are definitly a rare and under-rated band in my opinon. They are incredibly eclectic in their influence and tastes as the "Anotherlatenight" (a compilation chillout album) shows. What impresses me is that they are able to make such quirky yet smooth, atmospheric music without sounding contrived. It's electronic but yet strangely touching, and natural.
They are one of the few groups that's able to cut into something like 'downtempo' and make a very distinct signature in their music -- without covering old ground. I can definitely tell their tracks apart. These definitely hold up well to repeated listening, and they have a very pleasant mellow vibe to their music without swaying too far in any direction but their own.
Oh, and my the way the rant at the end of "6 Ft Wasp" (White Anglo Saxon Protestant?) was the brilliant and venerable Bill Hicks, whom this album was dedicated to. Sellout Dennis Miller couldn't have touched him with a 10ft GOPole. ;)"
