A. Georgette - Kirie / AA. Claudia - Com Mais de 30
Brazil 45, number 26:
'Kirie' is one of ‘those’ tracks. It gets better with every listen and you hear something different every time. You won’t forget it, and you can’t get it - taken from the hard to obtain ‘A Moca do Mar’ LP on Tapecar in 1976, previously unavailable on 7”. Long championed by Gilles Peterson and co.
Tight uplifting guitar changes, layered percussion and super-subtle strings groove under Georgette’s vocal, backed by a chorus of male vocals.
We are delighted to release this track, just in time for summer. Special thanks to Gareth ‘The Knowledge’ Stephens for digging it up.
As if the A Side wasn’t enough… The AA side features one of Claudia’s best, ‘Com Mais de 30’ a cover of Marcos and Paulo Sergio Valle original version.
Fuzz guitars, piano, huge drums, percussion and Claudia’s soaring vocal make for a heavy yet uplifting MPB/funk track of the highest order.
Features on her hard to find ‘Jesus Cristo’ LP on Odeon in 1971. Also featured on the Four Tet and Floating Points Plastic People mix
