TRACK PREMIERE: WINTER & TRIPTIDES “DESAPARECIDOS”

September 20th, 2018 | Listen

Recent L.A. RECORD featurees Samira Winter and Glenn Brigman of Triptides got together two years ago to make something special: Estrela Magica, a lovely and lovingly put-together album dedicated to the music of Winter’s native Brazil. Magica is a deep and reverent exploration of the sound and spirit of Tropicalia, with endlessly inventive songs delivered with vivid technicolor charisma. The dreamy “Desaparecidos” is a perfect example, and was especially inspired by the legendary Erasmo Carlos, says Winter:

“’Desaparecidos’ came from a dream I had that aliens had taken my friends in a farm in Brazil and I was looking for them. I had a lot of fun coming up with an Erasmo Carlos [style] cheery melody and progression contrasted with scary lyrics. The chorus translated in English is ‘I need to find all my friends, the disappeared one.'”

Estrela Magica is out Fri., Sept. 28, on OAR and you can pre-order it here. And while Winter & Triptides are just about to start a European tour, they’ll be at the Roxy on Tues., Oct 23, as part of a brief west coast tour. Full dates for Europe and USA below!
