Sabia Que - Marcelo Fruet & Os Cozinheiros

Legbamel Not-Pop

Stick it out through the tympani-heavy into (for which you simply must have stereo headphones) and coast along through the first verse of Sabia Que and you'll be rewarded with a song that builds and builds until, three minutes in, you're in the middle of a rock song. Marcelo Fruet and Os Cozinheiros (that'd be "The Cooks" for those of you not fluent in Portuguese) cover a lot of genre territory, from jazzy tunes to traditional Brazilian to straight-out rock. Sometimes they throw the whole mess into a single song.

From what I can tell, Sabia Que means "knew", though it seems to be followed in the song by "no". As I couldn't find anywhere with the lyrics much less a translation, I can't really put that in context. I don't, however, much care about what they're singing when I'm dancing around my living room, which is what I was doing by the time I got to the end of the song. If you like Marcelo Fruet & Os Cozinheiros, try Song for Tom and Adeusaloucura, both handily available on Grooveshark where you can, for some reason, find only two thirds of their new album "Aion".
