Tim Bernardes :: Recomeçar

Digging into O Terno’s atrás/além last month inevitably spurred a deep dive into the work of the São Paulo band’s talented jack-of-all-trades, Tim Bernardes. His 2017 release, Recomeçar, shines exquisitely from head to toe. So, cut off the overheads, turn on a lamp or light a candle, perhaps some incense, and listen to it. Might we suggest starting with “Quis Mudar,” a breathtaking folk song punctuated by crystalline eruptions of strings and horns. Bernardes’ voice is truly next level. words / j steele
