LST-103 ORUÃ "Sem Bênção / Sem Crença" Cassette Tape
Release Date March 29, 2019
The lineage of bands from Brazilian master mind Lê Almeida is long and varied. Oruã is Lê's newest group. They're a trio featuring Lê Almeida on guitar, keyboard, and vocals, João Luis on bass, and Daniel Duarte on drums. Also contributions by João Casaes, Renato Godoy, Evandro Fernandez, and many others. We have released an album "Paraleloplasmos" and an EP "Pre Ambulatorio" previously for Lê Almeida's solo project which is a catchy indie rock band in the vein of Pavement, Guided By Voices, and Dinosaur Jr. Oruã is a darker and looser group while still retaining a pop sensibility within the frame work of Brazilian psych rock. This time they've added some jazz influences and a dose of Black Sabbath.
"Sem Bênção / Sem Crença" is a 13 song album that runs 71 minutes long. Lê Almeida and João Luiz of Oruã are now members of Built To Spill along with their frequent collaborator João Casaes. Look for them on tour with Built To Spill for most of this year. First they will be touring in Europe for 5 weeks in April 2019 and then a full U.S. and Canada tour Summer/Fall 2019.
