COMING SOON: Seu Jorge and Almaz - S/T (2010)

Take a listen to the lead single, a cover of Roy Ayers 'Everybody Loves the Sunshine', off the upcoming Seu Jorge and Almaz project. Sounds nice! The album is due to be released on the 27th July on Now-Again Records and will be distributed by Stones Throw Records.

Seu Jorge - Everybody Loves The Sunshine

"Seu Jorge and Almaz – drummer Pupillo and guitarist Lucio Maia from the stalwart Nação Zumbi, with bassist and composer Antonio Pinto – came together naturally to record a song for a Walter Salles film. They enjoyed the experience so much that they recorded an entire album, free of convention, of music that inspired them: they covered songs famous within the Brazilian diaspora and added a psychedelic samba to some classic American and European soul tunes.

They enlisted producer and fellow Brasileiro Mario C. (Beastie Boys, Jack Johnson) to put the finishing touches on the project. And now Seu Jorge and Almaz, looking to only “the music” and “common sense” as bandleader, spring forth with an album both warm and dark, psychedelic yet grounded, uplifting but at times somber. "
