"The Release of the album It! Tempo Plastico band"

"Some discs are meant to be heard at maximum volume. This is the case of IT, the brazilian band Tempo Plastico, which appeared in 2006 in Belo Horizonte with the proposal to make a heavy rock, experiencing the influences and create a sound that evaded labels and fads. "It" borns in the clock run, the ideas that bubbled up in the daily meetings between the four members.
This urgency is impregneted at the sound. Fabio Gruppi (vocals), Claudio Moreira (guitar), Saulo Ferrari (drums) and Luciano Porto (bass) the second album launch of the group and the first with this current lineup, reunited for two years. Having the experience and learning "Fazendo a Lata Velha Voar" (2013), which marked the debut of the band, the TP follows restless, looking for something.
From August to October 2014, the quartet went through pre-production and disc finalization process. The Tempo Plastico started playing the musics from IT, live, six months ago. Produced by Michel Kuaker and mastered by Carl Saff in Chicago, in the US, IT was created with the intensity of those who believe in what you are doing. The time and urged the band dove headfirst into a hectic pace of creation. What, for the quartet, it was good. Things had to happen. And they knew how. "It was an intense process, hard work. It was natural for it to appear in the record", says bassist Luciano.
And such a rapport, as necessary, came with the passing days in the studio and living on the road and into the early morning. "We forced the creative process. Flowed, do not know if by force", says drummer Saulo. As influences of stoner rock and grunge go through all the tracks on the album. The same that shows it in his sound, Tempo Plastico runs of plays and shows how the band can travel own artistic paths. Vocalist Fabio makes clear: "We strongly believe in this work."
The compositions on personal experiences, everyday situations of the urban setting and the frictions and generated uncertainty in relation to the other, are direct, bluntly. Sometimes in Portuguese, sometimes in English, the letters also record this accelerated time by which the band went to record the album sound. Also seems chase The speed and fluidity of beatnik literature of Jack Kerouac, confessed influence of composers Fabio and Claudio.
IT is dirty, no bullshit and goes straight to the point. A heavy sound and up. "Stoner" which opens the album and had clip released earlier 2015, gives the message. Light a cigarette, accelerate the car, take the road and go do whatever comes to your head. It is the feeling it gives to listen to the track. A sense of hope and freedom continues in "Hoje Eu Acordei" the next single. A fast guitar music ripping machine as "Hit do Verao", which won a lyric video produced and directed by Tempo Plastico.
Following, something darker, with Black Sabbath airs. Superb to criticism of politicians, "Fly" has an anguished vocal and ends with desperate screams of vocalist. Verses "Do futuro não se sabe/Nem se pode esquivar/Ousadia é escolher com o coração" (The future do not know / can not dodge / Boldness is to choose with the heart) of "Por Um Fio," Fabio partnership with lyricist Brisa Marques, summarize the quartet's attitude towards what is to come. And the unknown does not scare them, on the contrary, it seems to excite them.
The riff of "Future", song-verb recalls brazilian band Titãs in the 1980s. Throughout its 10 tracks, "It" shuffles well something that is heavy and has a melody that reaches people without causing oddities. "Treze," which closes the album, is a punk-rock to dance. The disc ends noisy, leaving the trail to see the group live, playing on stage, where they feel comfortable. The printed visual concept in minimalism cover refers to the year 1990. With the open booklet, what you see is a bull inside a bottle. "Packaging the unpackable. The IT is that", says guitarist Claudio.
Care for the work shows that the Tempo Plastico has ambition and knows where to transit. Will play the game without shame, bet the chips aware of where they can get. IT is the trump card. The record is clear and it's as if the band said, this is our Music and that's what we want to do. With anxiety and urgency - in sound and speech."

The band is inviting the bands Tianastácia and Cachorro Grande for release shows in four cities of Minas Gerais, in addition to Eckolu opening band in 3 cities, thus inaugurating the Ultra Rock Festival. - BH Eventos

"Rock with attitude - show review by Pamella Perzoini"

Last Saturday, June 20th, Jack Rock Bar opened its doors to host another edition of Jack Experience, a project that is presented to the public good surprises of the independent scene from Minas Gerais state. Experience with the new begins in the moment a person enters the house: the sound system is not composed of AC/DC, Metallica, Pearl Jam and other bands that usually make up the setlist of the house before shows. The people are faced with a selection of authorial music, showing the fullness that we have when it comes to good compositions and musical quality.
After the presentation of Maurinho and Mauditos, which opened the project on the right foot, it was time for the band TEMPO PLASTICO show for what they came. With the launch of a new work scheduled for the second half of 2015, the quartet's repertoire presented to the public, firsthand, the songs that will make the next record and showed what is, in fact, make a rock and roll: with no superfluous with songs in Portuguese and English and attitude on stage.
The song "Fly" started to show what was coming and made it clear one of the biggest influences of the band, starting with the composition of the initial riffs: Stoner Rock. A sound well done and heavy, arousing the attention of onlookers who were joining the front of the stage to see and hear the repertoire of Tempo Plastico. Then another weight music, "Stoner" in the same previous footprint, and whose video clip - very well produced, by the way - can now be found by the public on internet.
Then it was the turn of the songs "Future", then "Tools" and "Yellow Liquido" and "Little Sister" by the Queens of the Stone Age. Among so many good songs, Tempo Plastico also is configured as a band that has attitude presentations. The singer, Fabio Gruppi, fulfills his role of frontman. It's that musician who is not there only to present his sound, he feels the music and captivates the audience with their interpretation, perhaps, make many call him crazy. But, for me, it is how it should be presented a good rock and roll.
Following the presentation of the song "Hit do Verao" song in Portuguese that will be disseminated to the public in August through a lyric video. After "Kerouac", "Por Um Fio" and "Rise 'n Burn". Among so many songs, the quartet was showing quality in live sound. The fact that the band has only one guitar, do not let the sound with less weight. The guitarist, Claudio Moreira, secures the safe wave and stands out for talent with the stringed instrument.
The show was nearing the end and the last songs chosen were "Mountains Goodbye," "Hoje Eu Acordei", "No One Knows" - also a cover of Queens of the Stone Age - and "Treze". The audience followed the whole presentation of the group and enjoyed the experience they had by quality authorial music and well composed. The second band of Jack Experience held the previous quality and let all curious to know the next group with presentation scheduled for July 11.
After the spectacle of Tempo Plastico, the audience saw a repertoire from Nirvana Tribute - Nevermind, which included the song "Celebrate Skin", made by the band Hole in their repertoire. And then some classic metalcpre, with Aunora, who took the opportunity and sent two original songs on the show, "Meus Herois" and "Dave's Song."

"A night of Stoner Rock - Interview"

With new formation since 2014, Tempo Plastico is now showing its new face. Brazilian rock sung both in English and Portuguese, heavy riffs of a guitar, bass and drums giving the right weight to not let anyone off. The stoner rock band with influences from Queens of the Stone Age, rock and grunge classics and Brazilian music.
The TP is set to release "IT", her second album. Recorded in the studios of Ultra Music and Wah Wah, the new work was the result of intense interaction between the four members that during the year 2014, met to compose. The album features ten tracks, produced by Michel Kuaker and mastering Carl Saff.
In this Saturday, June 20th, the band will present his new work to the public in Belo Horizonte, at the famous Jack Rock Bar, the project "Jack Experience". The singer, Fabio Gruppi, spoke to the Rock on the show and the new album. Check!
The launch of the new album is scheduled for this year. Already have a definite date? As the construction of this work?
The TP has passed for a change of formation. Saulo Ferrari took the drums and Luciano Porto the bass. In early 2014, when this formation met, we already were scheduled for September the record of the disc. We had seven months to compose the music and the result was 15 songs. Of these, recorded 12 and will release 10. The new work represents a cut of the transition period we live in, driven increasingly by stoner rock. The disc, which is ready, is hoping to be able to live music, the bipolarity of the senses and plasticity of time. We recently launched the first single with video, "Stoner", and in August we released a lyric video of the song, "Hit do Verao". I believe that by the beginning of the second half the album is available for free download.

I could see the in your work there is a mix of music in Portuguese and English. How did this idea came?
This is already something we like to do from the first album. English is present in our lives, in music, movies and travel. But, above all, it is a direct influence of the Mutant Arnaldo Baptista. On his disks, as in Loki, he sends a whirlwind of ideas that make sense regardless of the language. In fact, add English with Portuguese enables an even greater extent in the creation of the senses that a song can cause. The idea is to "let it flow".

And for the Saturday show? What the public can expect in Jack Rock Bar?
We are very excited to play in Jack. The rock audience of BH wants to have fun, but also want the opportunity to learn new things and to think a little. People can expect a busy show, full of intent, with the usual vigor, face, will show the present where we plan to go.
For this presentation, we will play the new album "IT", songs from our first album, "Fazendo a Lata Velha Voar" and two interpretations of Queens of the Stone Age. - Rock Music

"Festival Traço gathers music and visual arts in Belo Horizonte"

Rock e artes visuais andam de mãos dadas desde sempre. É só olhar para trás e ver a influência de Andy Warhol junto ao Velvet Underground, de Hélio Oiticica com os tropicalistas e até o casamento de Patti Smith e Robert Mapplethorpe. Isso sem falar da variedade de astros pop que foram parar nos quadrinhos – de Kurt Cobain a Raimundos, passando por Beatles e Johnny Cash. Apesar deste lastro, a iniciativa do festival Traço – Música e desenhos ao vivo traz uma boa dose de ineditismo. A partir de agosto, e em quatro edições anuais até junho de 2015, um grupo de músicos vai se reunir a artistas gráficos, todos da nova geração, para performances simultâneas. Enquanto um toca, o outro ilustra. As quatro noites, com três apresentações cada, serão no Stonehenge.

Foram escaladas 11 bandas e uma artista solo que vão fazer shows para serem ilustrados por 16 desenhistas. O embrião do festival nasceu em 2013, quando houve apresentação, na programação paralela do Festival Internacional de Quadrinhos (FIQ), que uniu a banda Tempo Plástico e Jão e Bruno Pirata. Os dois criaram uma HQ enquanto o grupo fazia um show no CCCP. “Essa proposta surgiu quando eu trabalhava no Queijo Elétrico (produtora audiovisual voltada para a música independente que realizou o show) e reparei que uma iniciativa como essa foi feita poucas vezes. Como festival então era inédito”, comenta Helen Murta, que produz o evento ao lado de Tetê Procópio.

A curadoria das bandas foi feita pelas duas produtoras. Já a dos artistas gráficos coube a Jão. “Priorizamos as autorais, tanto que só há uma cover, Os Marrones (de Ramones). A diversidade de estilos é grande e são todas novas. A mais antiga é a Tempo Plástico, criada em 2006”, diz Helen. Jão acrescenta: “Na hora de escolher, pensei em pessoas que teriam condições de fazer um trabalho ao vivo. E ainda tentamos ligar o som das bandas ao estilo de cada artista.” No entanto, a intenção é que a performance seja o mais livre possível. Em vez de ensaios, banda e artistas vão fazer reuniões para tentar definir sua apresentação.

Única artista solo no evento, a acordeonista Sarah Assis, participa da abertura do evento, em 8 de agosto. Para acompanhá-la foram convidados Eduardo Damasceno e Luiz Felipe Garrocho, que produzem a série Quadrinhos rasos. Como a HQ é produzida a partir de letras de música, o festival tira os quadrinistas de sua zona de conforto, já que vão ter que desenhar inspirados por uma música instrumental. Sarah, por seu lado, tem experiência com o rock – participou de discos das bandas Proa e Dead Lovers. “O caráter de experimentação é muito forte no meu trabalho, pois uso pedais (como se fossem os de guitarra) ligados ao acordeom. Isso gera muita distorção, que acho que vai dialogar com os desenhos”, comenta ela, que vai executar repertório de releitura de Astor Piazzolla e até uma mistura de Bach com Luiz Gonzaga.

Carimbos Boa parte dos desenhos será feita em papel com caneta e projetada em telão. Há ainda um grupo que vai usar computador e tablet, mas nenhum dos convocados vai usar material semelhante ao do artista gráfico Matheus Ferreira, que vai ilustrar show da banda Paquiderme Escarlate, que vai ocorrer na edição de março do festival. Suas ilustrações serão feitas com carimbos de borrachas escolares. “É o mesmo princípio da xilogravura. Crio as imagens nas borrachas e daí, conforme a quantidade de tinta, são formadas imagens diferentes. Tudo vai depender de cada carimbada”, diz ele, que vem trabalhando na pesquisa de gravura de maneira diferenciada.

Já Ricardo Tokumoto, paulista radicado em BH, trabalha desde o início da carreira com desenhos que tenham relação com a música. Ele vai se apresentar na edição de novembro do Traço, ilustrando o show da banda Desorquestra, que veio a conhecer por causa do evento. Desde 2007, ele publica suas tiras no site Ryotiras, que ganhou uma versão em papel no livro Ryotiras omnibus. “Minhas tirinhas misturam cultura pop com o cotidiano. Já tive banda, toco guitarra e violão, e, quando era mais novo, violoncelo. Então sempre existiu essa ligação com a música”, diz ele, que começou a carreira no interior de São Paulo fazendo tirinhas para fanzines ligados ao movimento punk.

O inverso também é verdadeiro. Uma das bandas convocadas para o Traço mais conhecidas do cenário underground da cidade, a Ram tem um clipe só com animações (Routine). “Nosso show é bem livre, focado no improviso. E o rock como é consumido hoje é muito voltado para a balada, para casa noturna. Nossa proposta é diferente, nosso rock não é muito de pista, então acho que a experiência visual vai enriquecer a musical”, afirma o vocalista Paim. O grupo toca na edição final do Traço, em junho de 2015, com ilustrações do projeto Luiz vs Zé, dos artistas gráficos Luiz Moreira e José Lara.

O evento terá quatro edições. A estreia será
em 8 de agosto, às 21h, no Stonehenge,
Rua Tupis, 1.448, Barro Preto.
Ingressos: R$ 20 (preço único).

"Tempo Plastico does a show this Wednesday in a famous BH theater"

The band Tempo Plastico does a show Wednesday at 20h, in the SESC Palladium pocket theater. Enough with vocalist Fabio Gruppi ahead of a power trio formed by Claudio Moreira (guitar), Luciano Porto (bass) and Saulo Ferrari (drums). Fresh out from the studio, where they just recorded the second album, promised to 2015, the group presents in the repertoire unreleased songs ("Hoje Eu Acordei", "Stoner", "Por Um Fio") and from the first CD ("Kerouac", "Yellow Liquido").

The current sound, explains Fabio Gruppi has weight elements of pop, valuing guitar riffs and worked vocals. "Even because, when we reduce a member, we left room for the corner," says the singer. Proposal bearing influence of a band the members love: the Californian Queens of the Stone Age, stoner rock icon, gender who balances weight, melody and 70's atmosphere. But also seeking to bridge between the public of rock and pop.

Despite having alternative compositions in English and Portuguese, to Fabio Gruppi, whatTempo Plastico does is Brazilian rock. "British and Americans have more marked production, tougher. We even wanting to do something, we have Brazilian blood. And the swing ends up appearing in music one way or another, "he believes. For him, it hardly matters, since such a course ("the essence of increased national rock vein") ends up being something unique and rare.

What is really different, he points out, it is the infrastructure for recording and doing lice shows. "In Brazil, only the styles Axé and Sertanejo counts with mega-structure. This way, even the big rock bands have one foot in the underground, "continues Fabio Gruppi. With regard to interpretation, the singer says that, as the letters are his, he defends each one with redoubled vigor and will. There have been those who saw the singer similarities to Cazuza's posture.

Fabio Gruppi considers that the rock scene of Belo Horizonte undergoes tough time three years now. "There are few places to play and the audience, which is hidden at home of covers, is not used to hearing authorial music," he explains. Positive aspect, however, is the emergence of good formations, which creates an atmosphere of conviviality, "shoulder companion in time to face the problems." It implies The Junkie Dogs (who just released their first album), Fodastic Brenfers and Absinto Muito as proof of the rock scene and renovation in BH.


The Tempo Plastico came in 2006, formed by colleagues of the media course that were "on the stairs of the building 13" in PUC. The group has played at the bar A Obra, in the project Conexao BH and festivals, and also appeared in the program Alto Falante, by Rede Minas channel. On stage, the band also presents reinterpretations of songs from Queens of the Stone Age, Rolling Stones and the brazilian Titãs.

"Tempo Plastico - Profile"

Na ativa desde 2006, a Tempo Plástico decidiu concretizar seu repertório e lançar o disco "Fazendo a Lata Velha Voar" (2013). O álbum foi gravado no Estúdio Ultra, produzido por Barral Lima e saiu pelo selo Ultra Music. A masterização ficou por conta do engenheiro de som Ted Jensen, do estúdio Sterling Sound (Nova York), que já trabalhou com artistas como Stone Temple Pilots e Alice In Chains.

Artistas contestadores e reflexivos que são, se prestaram a experimentar e reinventar sua produção sonora como reflexo do cotidiano. Letras em português e inglês fazem alusão ao dia a dia, amizade e desprentensão de Fabio Gruppi (voz), Cláudio 'Capeta' Moreira (guitarra), Saulo Ferrari (bateria), Luciano Porto (baixo) e Marcus Batista (synth). Resultado: um rock visceral e sem frescura.


- A banda já se apresentou em diversos festivais como Feira da Música, BrazilFest, em Seattle (EUA), S.E.N.S.A.C.I.O.N.A.L.! 4, que reuniu mais de 15 mil pessoas em Belo Horizonte e Conexão BH 2013

- O baterista Saulo Ferrari é primo do guitarrista Cláudio Moreira

- Ex-integrantes: Felipe Prado (baixo), Eduardo Drummond (bateria) e Thiago Viana (guitarra)

Tempo Plastico is a Brazilian Stoner Rock band from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, formed in 2006.

The band is independent and is building a solid carreer after playing in some important festivals during the years, highlighting the South by Southwest 30th anniversary (SXSW) in Austin, Texas, that became the band's first US Tour in 2016, where they drove from Las Vegas to Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, San Angelo, Amarillo, El Paso and Santa Fe in a motorhome.

In October 2015, Tempo Plastico released the album "IT", as the band's second full lenght. Recorded in the studios Ultra Music (Belo Horizonte) and Wah Wah Studios (Sao Paulo), the record was the result of intense interaction between the four members. The album has 10 tracks, some in English some in Portuguese. "IT", was produced, engineered and mixed by Michel Kuaker (Sao Paulo), and mastered by Carl Saff (Chicago, USA). The band released "IT" for free in October 13th and was invited to perform in Mexico City at Festival Ajusco in November 2015.

The current formation was settled in 2014. Fabio Gruppi (Vocals), Claudio Moreira (Guitars), Luciano Porto (Bass) and Saulo Ferrari (Drums) refreshed their musical influences with the main objective: surrender to Music completely. Drop and heavy chords, upwards and heartfelt vocals, to the point: ROCK.

The first album was released in 2013. "Fazendo a Lata Velha Voar"  has 12 tracks and was produced by Barral Lima (Ultra Music, Belo Horizonte) and mastered by Ted Jensen (Sterling Sound, NYC). 

Nowadays, Tempo Plastico is currently performimg in many places from Minas Gerais state and some capitals in Brazil, besides finishing the production of a third album. Some festivals they already played are: SXSW Music Festival (USA), Festival Ajusco in Mexico City, BrazilFest in Seattle (USA) and some other Brazilian festivals from Belo Horizonte: BH Music Station, BH Rock Week, SENSACIONAL #4 and #6, Virada Cultural, Conexao Vivo and others.

Main influences of the band are Kyuss, Black Sabbath and Queens of the Stone Age.
