 Two long songs by a heavyweight of Portuguese experimental music.It's a thrilling development.

"'Cai-Bem' is a splendid addition to the already extensive discography of David Maranha. It is also the first full-length vinyl LP in Tanuki Records' cataloge. There is a story behind this new album, although you would not guess what It is, unless told. Keen to explore new ways of playing, as he has done during his whole career since he began playing with his band Osso Exotico in the 1980's, Maranha suggested that they should all play other instruments that their regular ones. He himself switched his organ for the drums, Manuel Mota is on bass, Margarida Garcia on the organ and Miguel Abras on a fostex 4 track tape recorder and voice. Crafting their music as acoustic drone compositions, Maranha and his ensemble play primarily with time. compositions are less about inventing new structures every time, than about the paradoxical challenge of building a stasis retaining the forcefulness of a forward motion. In this case the unusual and eerie sounds they coaxed from their newfound i nstruments adds new layers to the psychedelic power of this great record. "
