We're subverting a classic album…

 

“When I decided to pay homage through this, I could not think that so many characters in the current music scene (young or not quite, as myself) also had a very personal link to what Nirvana's music stood for at that time and still does.

Sadly, the landscape of human relations didn't change so much since Kurt left us. His absence is actually pure omnipresence when we look around and realize the amount of family disaffection, structural abuse, uncured pain, addiction, anxiety, celebrity gossip ... as if 25 years after the release of "In Utero", life outside that protective capsule hasn’t found a better definition than the one exposed by him.

And by seeking meaning for the present, I rediscovered these themes, and tried to approach them of other musical interests. To extrapolate genres. This could only be achieved in good company... Throughout the album you'll find features such as: Bananeira Brass Band, Letrux, Tuyo, Naked Girls and Aeroplanes, Raissa Fayet, Michele Mara, Francisco el Hombre, Machete Bomb, Dopler Beatz, The Shorts and more of the finest new brazilian music acts.

All in all, is all we are.
- Rodrigo Lemos
