Marlene Ribeiro – “Toquei no Sol”
Another single from the upcoming Marlene Ribeiro LP unfolds this week along with an appropriately altered reality video from Ovo Estrelado. Far removed from her work with the more caustic Gnod, Ribeiro’s solo LP is cloaked in a midnight sorcery. The incense that burns off of its embers yearns for the forest folk and done ceremonies that were thick among the posts on this site pre-2010. The title track is laced with a charred disquiet, an air that vacillates between the pre-dawn incantations of Pocahaunted and the tape-deck dread of Sun Araw, Vibes, and L.A. Vampires. It’s about time for a return to the altar of anxiety among the ashes of tape hiss. Her new album is out February 10th from Rocket Recordings.
