* * * * * Kalouv – Sky Swimmer * * * * *
Founded in Recife, Brazil, in the beginning of 2010, Kalouv is an encounter of ten hands that produce instrumental music, making use of the many musical memories that each one of them have. They are:
Bruno Saraiva [ Keyboards ]
Basílio Queiroz [ Bass ]
Rennar Pires [ Drums ]
Saullo Mesquita [ Guitars ]
Túlio Albuquerque [ Guitars ]
Their musicality is expressed by many characteristics from post-rock, ambient and progressive rock – with guitars full of delay and reverb, distorted riffs, beautiful piano themes and high doses of ambience – but they also carry with themselves the many influences from Brazil and their city, Recife, with a rich musical culture.
In may of 2010, with only two demos recorded, the band received many concert opportunities, that included one show in the Centro Cultural do Sol, with the band Labirinto, Grito Rock, which is a set of concerts that happen in all America Latina, and many others shows.
[ SKY SWIMMER ] ~ Finishing a cycle initiated in January of 2011, the band releases his first official record, the disk Sky Swimmer. The work is shared freely by the net label Sinewave (www.sinewave.com.br), known by their constant support with many Brazilian experimental bands like S.O.M.A., Herod Layne, Elma, team.radio. , and many others.
Produced and mixed by the producer Diogo Guedes and mastered by Don Grossinger, who has a history of working with many huge projects, like Pink Floyd or Flaming Lips. The art is in the hands of the talented illustrator Ianah Maia. In 36 minutes – distributed in 7 tracks – , the listener can experience the same sensation of the central character in the cover, justifying the title Sky Swimmer, referring to the freedom of creation that this first work could provide.
Another EXCEPTIONALY listen… think acts such as [ Audiocæneat! ] ~ [ Phoria ] ~ [ Sky Architect ] ~ [ Scraps Of Tape ] ~ [ Kerretta ] ~ [ Fire Spoken By The Buffalo ] and you know… All the GOOD names within the sphere of instrumental, post-rock. It’s Brilliant and It’s Free ” SIMPLY GO GET IT “.
