Tropical Punk

Slum Dunk

Released: 19th July 2010 | 4 track ep
Slum Dunk Music presents Tropical Punk. The new 12 by Brazilian punk funk duo Tetine formed by Sao Paulo-born artists/musicians Bruno Verner & Eliete Mejorado - featuring 4 warm & wild dance punk numbers taken from their latest album From A Forest Near You. The opener Tropical Punk (Mutant edit) comes with a brand new mutant funk re-edit with more percussion, more analog synths, warm drum machines, and a funky bassline. The result is a mid-tempo non-obvious South American cannibalistic disco-pop with catchy lyrics & beautiful half-sang/half-spoken melodies. Yr Daugther Lies is a cosmic, experimental/new wave piece with plenty of old school synths, processed vocals, percussive drum machine & spooky live electronics flying around in the mix. It marks Tetine's collaboration with L.A. minimalists Howard Amb. On the B side, Shiva comes as a percussive dance punk number led by a simple groovy bassline & Eliete Mejorado's distinct post-feminist spoken word vocals on sordid domesticity set against organic drum beats, dissonant soundscapes, a lost trumpet & some great interplay of raw guitars. The last track O Espaco is a relaxed 6-minute cosmic piece of Brazilian tropical punk funk on the dangers & delights of being lost in the jungle - sang in Portuguese by Bruno & Eliete - & permeated by a discordant interplay of ultra-funky guitars, abstract synth-bass plus all sorts of FX & live electronics. Tropical Punk finds Tetine celebrating their art-punk roots back to the underground of Sao Paulo with a collection of wild & raw unconventional dance tracks.
