DEEWEE032 Phillipi & Rodrigo ‘Paciencia’ 12”
Release date: 22.02.2019
‘Paciencia’ is the Brazilian duo’s 9-track debut album, recorded, produced and mixed at Studio DEEWEE. Boasting songs about the cosmos, relationships, nostalgia and signs of the Zodiac. The longplayer follows Phillipi & Rodrigo’s single of the same name; released in November 2018 and will be available from 22nd February on all formats.
Described by David and Stephen as sounding “like Stereolab in 2019 singing in Portuguese while a Batucada band performs at a Brazilian beach techno party”, ‘Paciencia’ (album) begins with ‘Magnetico’, a languid, dubby start, that opens proceedings before the upbeat, organ-heavy psychedelic pop of ‘Retrogrado’ (the new single). The melancholic ‘Minas’ (complete with beautiful piano, strings, and birdsong), is the first straight dance cut on the album, a torch song, sung, like the rest of the album, in Portuguese.
Previous single, ‘Mantra’, is included as a digital exclusive, as is the equally acclaimed ‘Karma’. ‘Barberella’ and ‘Rotina’ show the depth and width to Phillipi & Rodrigo’s sound, before the album shifts gear with the slow techno groove of ‘Face’, and ‘Paciencia’ (single) closes the album with 5 minutes of hynoptic brilliance.
