The Brazilian psychedelic quintet Jewish Mandiolo released their début LP – Gustavinho Debaixo D’água on the 9th.
Formed originally in 2011 as a duo in 2014 three further players joined, two of whom Luiz Bento and David Dinucci will be recognised by regular readers as being from Bent.vi – who they both still play with too.
From the six track album – the fourth – Amor Líquido.

Bent.vi from Macaé in Brazil is the alt-rock quartet of Luiz Bento (Vocals/Guitar), David Dinucci (Guitar), Lucas Caetano (Drums) and Wallace Santos (Bass).
The immutable pressures of life resonate through the angst riven music that is Bent.vi. Creating sounds which have a palpable feeling of impeding gloom and panic the quartet transfer those anxieties to the listener in what are highly effective tracks.
Guitars flail around the room leaving flashing fuzzy streaks in their wake, whilst percussion and bass set an industrial framework and the vocal cries its story. Music which speaks of personal straights can’t but evoke a response from the audience and it is the ability of the players in Bent.vi to capture those thoughts and deliver them coherently, although challenging of the listener, that I particularly enjoy.
This is not music to take to a beach party, but certainly one for quieter more reflective moments, where their creations have a mesmeric attention grabbing force.
A recent LP their début appropriately named Pó de Vidro, which is a six track creation covering the cuts and abrasions of life is well worth getting hold of and is available on bandcamp.
