I should had done this post before because I listen to this group two months ago…but here we are. So I went to São Paulo… yes, I’m currently living in Brazil, and when walking along the Avenida Paulista I came across this tall dude selling CDs. He’s from a group called Atentado Napalm, and was selling their 2013 album for just 5 or 10 reais, I can’t remember now. But even it it was 10 reais, it’s just 2.41€, which is nothing…
After buying the album I got a good surprise. As a note, I have to say that I’ve bought it to support these guys even without knowing it they were any good. So I got intrigued by the album’s name. It’s called “Pronto Como Um Macaco Para Ser Lançado Ao Espaço”, which can be translated into “Ready as a monkey to be launched into space”. Hahaha, cool name right? What will be this work about?
Of course I’m not gonna do an album review, hoping you will listen to it =). But I can say that a lot of the tracks included were quite good. My favorite ones were (are) “Queimadura química” (Chemical burn), “O clã das rimas voadoras” (The flying rhymes’ clan), “Siglas” (Acronyms), and my favorite by far – “Tempos Modernos” (Modern times). This last one made me remember of Valete’s track “Nossos tempos”.

Note: When I tried to convert Reais in Euros I’ve used a conversor online. When typing my search for it I’ve wrote “conversor de moerdas” wrongly… Portuguese speakers will get it hehehe
