Joao Selva - Navegar LP

JOAO SELVA returns with a second album, a true hymn to creoleness and tropicalism, embued with flavors of funk, jazz and disco. An exhuberant travelogue diary featuring some shiny souls such as the sprightly Flavia Coelho and the multi- instrumentalist producer Patchworks (Voilaaa, The Dynamics, David Walters, Mr President, Taggy Matcher).  

Navegar, a collaborative effort with producer and multi-instrumentalist Bruno Patchworks was released on April 2. Operating in the traditional 60s tropicalismo style, and blended with elements from funk and soul which recall the style of the late Marcos Valle, the album follows a single release of the title track ‘Navegar’ in January, which was completed after Selva and Patchworks returned from a trip to Brazil in 2019. The new album explores Brazil’s current sociopolitical climate, maintaining a note of positivity. Selva said: “I wanted to make an album capable of giving hope. ‘Navegar’ was recorded after a road trip in Brazil with my partner in crime Bruno Patchworks (producer & co-author/composer) at the end of 2019. “I was touched to see so many people losing faith in the future and knew I had to share some positivity. Inspired by the resilience of the Black Atlantic cultures, I was moved to make music and dance as a strength that aloud us to keep looking forward and go trough those dark times.”

Grading

Mint(M)

Record Grading Guide:

  • Mint (M) – Absolutely perfect in every way. Never been played and usually sealed.
  • Near Mint (NM) – The record has been on a shelf between other records. The vinyl looks glossy and clearly has only been played a few times. There are no marks on the vinyl and the whole package is complete.
  • Excellent (E) – Same but I’d tolerate very light marks where the vinyl has been in and out of the inner sleeve a few times, or tiny signs of use generally.
  • Very Good Plus (VG+) – A few further faults are acceptable, but nothing that really compromises the record visually or audibly. A little rub, light inaudible marks, a little background crackle.
  • Very Good (VG) – It’s seen a bit of life, but is still usable. Light pops and clicks, an edge split, light visible scratches. You can still listen to it and enjoy looking at it, but it is visually and audibly USED.
  • Good (G) – To be honest you’re making trouble for yourself here, as Good means Bad. I’d only be selling something really desirable in this condition, with a bargain price and a full, no holds barred description to match.
  • Poor (P), Fair (F) Attempting to listen will be a disturbing experience. Expect major noise issues, skipping or repeating. The record itself is cracked, badly warped and has deep scratches. The cover is also approaching death.
