Posh Isolation present a much needed reissue of Brazil, a collaborative work by three spearheads of Scandinavian electronic music today: Hvide Sejl, Varg, and F. Valentin. The original edition was presented in a limited run of four cassettes, boxed and with an accompanying book in 2016. This timely reissue comes as a remastered double LP set, inviting a new set of listeners to the work. Four sides of uniquely textured summer ambience, industrial rhythms, synthesizer pieces, and piano works, complete Brazil. The luxuriant melodic drones of Loke Rahbek's Hvide Sejl project converge with the percussive work of Varg and the largely acoustic work of Frederik Valentin of Kyo, producing a fragile beauty. There is a sense of narrative to Brazil. The work cryptically leads its listeners through a small collection of moving panoramas. Keeping its distance, the storyline remains perpetually obscured. Like a crime unsolved, or a name-less love letter, as greater detail comes into focus the intrigue blooms. A multi-faceted affair for multifaceted affairs. "Things were somehow so good that they were in danger of becoming very bad because what is fully mature is very close to rotting." --Clarice Lispector, The Hour of the Star (1977)
