Second release from GATTOPARDO following their debut 12" builds on their influences of UK-DIY/Rough Trade staples and the '80s post-punk classics of their countrymates, GATTOPARDO puts their own distinctly modern Brazilian stamp on a classic sound without sounding obvious or awkward. That can most likely be attributed to talent, first and foremost, but also aided by the use of less common instruments like the shennai, guizos, derbake, and cello, with the B-side-long track, "As bruxas" inspired by Baden Powell and Vinicius De Moraes bossa standard, "Canto de Ossanha."
*** The way Bigcartel sets up the shipping calculator, it is nearly impossible to calculate postage on orders of more than one item shipping to outside of the United States. That means that for orders of certain combinations of format / items, it is necessary to initially overcharge so as to not lose money on shipping. Sorry for this inconvenience but just last week I noticed that as it my shipping was set up, I was losing upwards of $12.00 ea in postage to non US based addresses for SEVERAL orders. For sustainability of the label, that cannot continue happening. What I am getting at, is that if you are overcharged for postage, I will issue a refund of the overpaid amount when I ship out your order. I will be checking every time. ***
