The other day I received an email from the manager of the Brazilian Band Humanish inviting me to give their debut album a listen.

I did.

I hope you will too.

Here is the vital information, should you decide to stop reading here.
The band's website is www.humanish.com.br from there you can download the album for FREE.
OK, you have to give up your name and email address, but so what? Use a throwaway address if you are
worried about spam.

The bottom line is this is one of the very best albums I've heard in a long time.
I'll quote from the email I received, describing the band:

"Humanish combines fine textures, distortion, swing and synthesizers. All influenced by bands like Morphine, Queens of the Stone Age, Led Zeppelin and mixed with a touch of brazilian percussive music."

That really does sum it up. Listening to Humanish brought to mind my Middle School band teacher.
(Hey, Mr. Case if you are still out there somewhere.) He had a phrase he'd use when he was particularly happy with our performance. "Man, you cats can groove."

About Humanish I can only say, man those cats can groove.

Listen to the album and you'll hear a troupe of solid players who all know their job and do it well.
The singer has a great voice. It's so good that the fact that most of the lyrics are in Portuguese doesn't bother me in the least. I have no idea what he is singing about most of the time, but I hear what they are laying down and it just doesn't matter that I can't understand the lyrics.

They have a synthesizer player who makes me smile and that is saying something because so often I just really find a synthesizer annoying.

Combine those two with a guitar that absolutely rocks, horns that exude soul and a rock solid rhythm section and you have some serious magic.

Their music goes from hard-assed rock and roll track 5 O Santo o pro to Funky Swing track 4 Tanto to synth in the lead jams track 1 Algum dia na me. The thing is that they all sound really good.

Check these guys out!

New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Humanish Official Website) When Allan Yokohama, Marano and Fabiano Ferronato started playing together in a new project on May 2009, they wanted to create a kind of music that would keep the strength of rock guitars, but also having delicate and subtle sound combinations. Marano, who had been playing bass, now decided to play guitar, and it ended up giving one of the hallmarks of the band.

After a few rehearsal sessions the band defined Igor Ribeiro as a fourth element. Without the option of a bass guitar, it was put synthesizers and a baritone guitar to make the low tunes and textures. As the band chose to keep playing without the bass guitar they moved from the classic trio guitar-bass-drum setup to a new universe of elements and sounds and consolidated a new personality for a brand new band: Humanish.
A rock group inspired by the desire of navigating through a different music, tuned with the modern times.

The whole band had contact with music very early in childhood, in a familiar environment.
The musicians have been building a solid career through the years and their history includes playing with important alternative rock bands and festivals, opening concerts for bands like: Teenage Fanclub, Pixies, Placebo, Weezer, Mercury Rev The Breeders, Rubin Steiner among others.

The band has loads of musical references and travels through punk rock to jazz, with a touch of Brazilian music and electronic. The result is a modern rock, heavy and swinged, with landscapes of sounds, timbres, seventies climates combined with the characteristic distortion of the 90s and 2000s.
Another feature of the band is the fact of having two vocalists, expanding horizons of melodies and interpretation all trampled on riffs, textures, psychedelic atmospheres and poetic lyrics inspired by various human feelings and ideas.

Humanish combines fine textures, distortion, swing and synthesizers. All influenced by bands like Morphine, Queens of the Stone Age, Led Zeppelin and mixed with a touch of brazilian percussive music.

The debut album was produced by Carlos Trilha who worked with important names in Brazilian music such as Renato Russo and Marisa Monte.

This album has been well received in Brazil by journalists, magazines and specialized rock websites and it's being noted as one of the best rock albums of the year 2011

When Allan Yokohama, Marano and Fabiano Ferronato started playing together in a new project on May 2009, they wanted to create a kind of music that would keep the strength of rock guitars, but also having delicate and subtle sound combinations. Marano, who had been playing bass, now decided to play guitar, and it ended up being one of the hallmarks of the band.

After a few rehearsal sessions the band defined Igor Ribeiro as a fourth member.

As the band chose to keep playing without the bass guitar they moved from the classic trio guitar-bass-drum setup to a new universe of elements and sounds and consolidated a new personality for a brand new band: Humanish.
A rock group inspired by the desire of travelling through different sounds in their music, in tune with the modern times.

The band´s components have been building a solid career through the years and their history includes playing with important brazilian alternative rock bands at festivals and opening concerts for bands like: Teenage Fanclub, Pixies, Placebo, Weezer, Mercury Rev, The Breeders, Rubin Steiner among others.

The band has many musical references and their music sounds modern, heavy, and swings with landscapes of sounds, timbres, seventies climates, combined with the characteristic distortion of the 90s and 2000s. The band has been influenced by bands like Morphine, Queens of the Stone Age, Led Zeppelin and more.

Another feature of the band is the fact of having two vocalists, expanding horizons of melodies and interpretation. All trampled on riffs, psychedelic atmospheres and poetic lyrics inspired by human feelings and emotions. Humanish combines fine textures, distortion, synthesizers, horns, all mixed with a touch of brazilian percussive music.

The band has chosen renowned Carlos Trilha to produce their album, which has been released at influential magazines such as Rolling Stone, Billboard, main Brazilian newspaper “O Globo” and others, plus at various internet websites - and it was noted by some to be one of the best Brazilian rock albums of the year 2011.

After touring in Brasil playing at many festivals and venues, Humanish is now preparing a special edition of their album with unedited tracks through the Bolacha Discos label and will also be putting out their first video “Algum dia na memória” directed by Rodrigo Rigoni.
