4.0 excellentTheManMachine | November 30th 16

Just the fact that a hardshipped 79-year old Brazilian samba legend was the driving vocal force behind an album called 'The Woman at the End of the World' intrigued in itself, then they go ahead and destroy all expectations with ease. A band altogether funkier, post-punkier, more soulful, and certainly more trained than most; which amidst dual guitar clash-duels and percussion aplenty lies quite the predilection for cacophony-n-exploration along with wild horn/somber string sections when needed. Bookended with a-cappellas for potency and overall really the kind of rich+raw intricacy a voice and persona like Soares's deserves, what with her hair-raising poignancy and tough-as-nails snarls and desert-dry gasps and speedy sputterin' and gravel garglin' and and loogie hawkin'. Absorbing enough for these oft-wonderful Portuguese words to fall on deaf American ears and not have it be bothersome, but a translation is recommended no doubt. What a woman who's been in it some 60 years now promises during what just may be The End Of The World: "I will sing until the end." What she sputters during "Pra Fuder": "To fuck."

Basically the worst shit that got hipster hype ever. Elza grouped with a group of
underground (for a reason) composers to write some of the most obnoxious albums on her
career. Not only the sound structures are cringe-worthy, her voice is completely damaged
and out of tune. However, this album gets highs reviews and recommendations based only on
the fact that shes an old black woman and she sings about racism? Songs? Not a single
track stands out

4.0 excellentErwann S. STAFF | April 18th 22

She released this at 85? Mad respect, queen. A mulher do fim do mundo sees Soares eruct her presence through vocals, on top of a mix of samba, post-punk, psych rock that's always bouncy yet menacing. It's basically Dance Tonight, Revolution Tonight too! 3.9


4.5 superbThe Aspie Fantastie | December 23rd 21

The queen of raunchy and edgy brasiliera music makes a surprising banger of a return with an album miles more raunchy and edgy than ever her own past work. This is some of the catchiest and dirtiest sex music I've ever heard in my life that, however, talks mostly about some serious social and political issues in an envelope of flith. Sure enough my first drag show was set to this as a soundtrack.
