Amoeba Review

03/31/2014

Thievery Corporation return with an album of their signature acid-echo-tech-bossa-nova/MPB vibes, fleshed out with the conceptual maturity of a '70s Serge Gainsbourg record, and the results are miserable and beautiful. Saudade is essentially Portugese for blues, a musical longing and yearning, a wilting pull across a violin or a smokey vocal cord. So, it's miserable on purpose and probably beautiful on purpose too. Sounding almost like old Air records, Saudade is a slab of yearning tropical pathos which manages to emulate the classic mope-groove of some of the best bossa-nova, MPB, French avant-pop and occasional tropical Morricone-isms, all while keeping an eye on the world of sampling and electronic music for both inspiration and execution.
