Today on the show, Brazilian singer/songwriter Rodrigo Amarante joins us to discuss his new album, Drama. A lush and enveloping listen, it blends gentle pop with cinematic flourishes. Reflecting on the confines of masculinity, his artistic relationships with Noah Georgeson, Devendra Banhart, Little Joy, Los Hermanos, and much more, this conversation presents Amarante in a reflective, riffy, and casual mode. “Art is supposed to pull the rug, do something to you,” Amarante says. Join us for a little creative rug pulling, this week on Aquarium Drunkard Transmissions.Transmissions :: Rodrigo Amarante
