The Brazilian alt-rock band enema noise were introduced in December 2014.

Whilst according to style guidelines I shouldn’t be doing anything with this as it is a release that is dating back a couple of weeks, one of the joys of being the Editor, is that I can break those rules when it makes sense without taking my firing with anything more than a pinch of salt.
On the 14th enema noise released their eponymous five track EP (which is available on bandcamp), any one of which is more than worth its salt as a feature. I selected the penultimate number – azarnoazar to feature – as it encapsulates all that is the quartet. The angular anger stalks the room like a gun-slinger – eyes scouring for any sign of obstinate resistance that when discovered fires with a fully loaded gun before heading off to discover the next Refusenik.
Petulant guitar stomps across the eardrum as the drums beat the stirrup and the bass inflicts flights of darts which penetrate the cochlea leaving the vocal as an echoing fulminating subtext – making sense of it all – until abruptly everything stops and the listener is left bashing the sides of their head to quiet the ringing of silence.

Enema Noise is the alt-rock quartet of Murilo Barros (Guitar), Rafael Lamim (Guitar / Vocal), Daniel Freire (Drums) and João Morais (Bass) from Brasilia in Brasil.
Enema Noise – alt-rock from Brazil
Cloaking the room in an ominous presence Enema Noise deliver what can perhaps best be described as angry psychedelia. Pressing on at some trot the quartet allow their music to breathe by cleverly cutting away instrumentation only to fold it back into the track giving the developing sounds a foaming temperament.
The resulting out-put holds considerable interest to the audience as the two guitars seemingly melt into the compositions as a bad tempered percussion rages like a feral cat and the bass swoops akin to a hammer to batter the speakers as the subsumed vocal imploringly peers from the maelstrom. Tracks rarely reach the three minute mark yet are so packed with activity that it is difficult to believe that to be the case.
Enema Noise have three releases behind them dating back to 2012, their first being a split EP with Valdez and I look forward to their next stage of development.
The split EP and the current LP manual pouco prático do desapego, which came out in January, both contain the track eu preferi perder (the latter version being one second longer) are available from their bandcamp store as is, of significant difference, a live five track EP released in 2013 árvore monstro ao vivo which was far more experimental and contained scant vocal -running for twenty three minutes.
