Boys From Brazil


Despite its exotic name, Brazil isn’t one of those wind-chime-lovin’ world music ensembles. It's a six-piece indie-rock band from Muncie, Indiana, that plays the usual arsenal of instruments -- guitars, drums, etc. -- on its new CD, The Philosophy of Velocity. But there are pianos. And there are sweeping melodies that ride the grooves, which simultaneously sound fractured and kinda hard to play. Like the Mars Volta, Brazil favors tricky rhythms, a falsetto-embracing singer, and wordy songs that probably have a lot to say, not that we have a clue. Tracks like “Crime (And the Antique Solution)” and “Au, Revoir, Mr. Mercury” get hazy among all the majestic guitar ringing and post-hardcore splendor, but that’s probably the point.
