Artist Description“…a Barcelona-based group with international appeal led by L.A. native David Brown. While critics have compared them to Tom Waits and Morphine, to me they are most reminiscent of the "Golden Brown"-era Stranglers. Deliciously melodic and lushly produced, it's somehow both sad and sexy, and sounds like the way getting drunk on wine feels. In fact, drugs and alcohol show up in the lyrics of just about every one of these velvety tunes that are a little bit bossa nova, a little bit rock 'n' roll. Despite that, everyone who hears the record--from Bust's tattooed interns to my mother--asks who it is."
-Debbie Stoller, Bust Magazine
"[Brazzaville] creates a musty noir Tropicalia with mysterious rhythms and shadings, like a humid back alley café in some faraway land where the ceiling fan moves too slowly, perspiration drips down the walls and one false move can be your last."
