about

---ENGLISH VERSION BELOW---

Expérimentateur respecté de la scène musicale de Rio de Janeiro depuis le milieu des années 90, Ricardo Dias Gomes est principalement connu pour son travail sur trois albums de Caetano Veloso acclamés par la critique à la fin des années 2000: Cê (2006), Zii and Zie (2009) et Abraçaço (2012).Bassiste sur ces trois étonnants opus post-Tropicalia et sur les tournées mondiales qui les accompagnèrent, Gomes s'en est inspiré pour se lancer dans l'enregistrement d'un premier album solo, -11, sorti en 2015. Sur -11 Gomes a joué tous les instruments et s'est appuyé uniquement sur son instinct pour trouver une direction musicale: le magazine anglais The Wire souligna la qualité de l'album qui "n'est pas s'en rappeler d'autres débuts solo rugueux et personnels comme ceux de Laetitia Sadier ou Money Mark" et le Chicago Reader succomba à l'étrangeté du disque qui "alterne entre de tendres ballades introspectives, d'abruptes grooves électroniques et une ambiance
dissonante". Gomes vit désormais à Lisbonne sort donc ici son deuxième album - tout aussi fascinant que le premier - et comprenant notamment une participation d'Arto Lindsay - sur SDZ Records (Europe) et Kill Shaman (USA).

A respected innovator on the Rio de Janeiro music scene since the mid 90s, Gomes is best known for his work on the trio of critically-acclaimed albums Caetano Veloso released in the late 00s: Cê (2006), Zii and Zie (2009) and Abraçaço (2012). Playing bass on these modern milestones in post-Tropicalia, and subsequently touring the world with Veloso, inspired Gomes to record his debut album -11, released in 2015. On -11 Gomes played all the instruments himself and relied solely on his instincts in terms of the direction to take: The Wire praised the album saying it “recalls other rough and ready highly personal solo debut albums by Laetitia Sadier and Money Mark” whilst the Chicago Reader fell for it’s “weirdly hermetic sound world, alternating between tender, introspective ballads, rude electronic grooves, and dissonant ambience”.Gomes now lives in Lisbon and this new mini-album is called "Aa" features, among others, Arto Lindsay and is released via SDZ records in Europe and Kill Shaman in North America.
