Need to medicate that mid-week slump? Origami and The Fold present multi-instrumentalist Rodrigo Amarante at the Bootleg on June 18th at 8PM!
Don’t think you know Rodrigo Amarante? Well…you probably do.
Brazilian born Amarante’s musicianship and crystal-crooning vocals have graced our ears since his since 2007 contribution to Devendra Banhart’s Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon shortly followed by his stint with indie rock darlings, Little Joy, in 2008. Speaking of which, Little Joy fans will certainly find sonic grounding on which to grip in Cavalo, Amarante’s latest LP and first solo release off of Easy Sound Recording Co. He claims to have made the album during, “an unexpected but very welcome exile” in which he was given “the opportunity to re-cognize [his] nature.” This quest for true nature is evident. The tunes oscillate between groove-pop sung in English (“Hourglass”), to Portuguese piano ballads (“Cavalo”) and buoyant, Brazilian lullabies of intimate vocal/nylon string duets (“Irene”). Fans of Devendra’s sound will rejoice.
Rodrigo will not disappoint, and neither should you! So get over to Bootleg on June 18th and listen with us!
