Cibelle
The Shine Of Dried Electric Leaves
Crammed/Six Degrees 11252

By Paul-Emile Comeau

Published March 16, 2007

From: Brazil

Cibelle initially made a name for herself by contributing vocals to Sao Paulo Confessions, a very successful album by Suba, a producer/musician extraordinaire whose brilliant career was tragically snuffed out in a fire. Cibelle later teamed up with the innovative Brazilian musician Apollo Nove, which resulted in her own highly acclaimed debut. Nove was also involved with this follow-up album, and the result is another quirky release that doesn’t fit within any specific genre. The singer brought her Brazilian influences with her to London, and almost half the songs are sung in Portuguese. What stands out, though, are the sonic textures and unusual arrangements which make judicious use of such things as backward guitars, toy instruments, electronic blips and even coffee paraphernalia. Devendra Banhart, Seu Jorge and Spleen help out on one track each. The Shine Of Dried Electric Leaves is innovative enough to rapidly expand Cibelle’s fan base.
