Celebrated Brazilian songwriter-producer-multi-instrumentalist Amabis, who produced Rita Redshoes' album Life Is a Second of Love, proves beyond any doubt on his latest release Trabalhos Carnivoros that he can now add vocalist to his list of musical talents with this assured masterpiece of atmospheric, stripped-down cinematic folk where his vocals take center stage. With his previous album Memorias Luso/Africanas featuring vocals from Lucas Santtana, Criolo, Céu and Tulipa, it was a brave move by Amabis to shoulder all vocal duties himself, yet he does so with aplomb, and his melancholic delivery is the perfect foil to the spooky reverbed guitars, echoing silence and rhythmic claustrophobia that he and his long-term musical partner Regis Damasceno have crafted. Mostly known for his production work -- famously on Céu's acclaimed second and third albums Vagarosa and Caravana Sereia Bloom -- Amabis has also worked on soundtracks for both Brazilian TV (City of Men) and Hollywood (Lord of War, Collateral) and is an in-demand musician who's featured on records by Rodrigo Campos, Curumin and Lucas Santtana. Alongside Céu, Rica Amabis and Dengue And Pupillo (Nacao Zumbi) he recorded Sonantes, released by Six Degrees.
