The Bad Folks


Formed in 2002 after two of them had booked a date in a pub at their hometown, you'd expect anything but the raw and charming alt folk rock they play, given that they come from Samba and Bossa Novas homeland Brazil. They sing in English. However, you won't feel cheated (and that's not because of their accents): a closer look reveals a very distinct take on the likes of Neil Young and The Voidoids, which maybe only a band from Southern Brazil could have.

Formed in 2002 after two of them had booked a date in a pub at their hometown, you'd expect anything but the raw and charming alt folk rock they play, given that they come from Samba and Bossa Novas homeland Brazil. They sing in English. However, you won't feel cheated (and that's not because of their accents): a closer look reveals a very distinct take on the likes of Neil Young and The Voidoids, which maybe only a band from Southern Brazil could have. That alone would make them completely distinct from their English speaking counterparts, but then there's more to it.

They sound genuinely fresh. After releasing a single and an EP in 2003, the band played At Curitiba Pop Festival (CPF), one of Brazils most prestigious indie rock festivals. Their show was praised by the critics and audience, and stayed at the top of a poll chart on a Brazilian newspaper, almost beating headliners Breeders and Stereo Total. The Bad Folks are playing intensively their country's indie circuit, earning a notoriety for outstanding performances in which it is impossible not to feel compelled to dance, even during the softer songs - they've probably learnt how to do that during their country's ultimate yearly street party, Carnival.

But dont expect fusion sounds or any Latin drums, banjo and slide guitar rags. The Brazilian character of their sound is imbedded in their songwriting (which is done by 3 members separately, 2 of whom have been playing old school Samba for the last 6 years), but cannot be detected on the outer layers. If you like the Spaghetti western ambience, DIY vibes and brazilian cool, check them out. Dora Bakunin Read more on Last.fm.
