"Working around their core unit of Afonso Simoes (drums), Guilherme Goncalves (electric guitar) and Nelson Gomes (synthesizers), here they find themselves cooperating for the first time with the wonderfully psychedelically vigorous bass playing of Rui Damaso (part of the legendary Loosers) and the topographically globetrotting ways of wayward adventurer conga orchestrator Jerry the Cat (formerly a part of Funkadelic/ Parliament and C.J. & Co touring bands; and later performed on records of Carl Craig, Recloose, Moodymann, Theo Parrish, and many others), both now members of the band. On Broda they're joined by Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance, Comets On Fire, ETC!), truly one of the most powerful forces in US guitar soul in recent decades, and as terrific a six-string player as one of likely to find on record and onstage in this day and age, wherever that might be. Broda careers through in three passages of positively organized jamming. The fruits of a week's very intense work on freedom and democracy in the collective artistic gesture revealed in only the slightest of documentarian restraints, so as to excuse us into peeking into this cosmology of friendship and externalization of the luminous."
