In Loveland With You

A 14 track leftfield/idm album (1h 6m 45s) — released April 8th 2013 on Slum Dunk

Tetine are Brazilian artist/musicians Bruno Verner and Eliete Mejorado from Sao Paulo, Brazil. Based in Hackney (East London) since 2000, the duo have created a multitude of music, performance art and films - including art projects, community and street actions around the area.

In Loveland With You is Tetine's fourth album to be released in the UK and Europe - a follow up to their Tropical Punk album trilogy which included debut album Let Your X's Be Y's on Soul Jazz Records (2008) and both of their self-released records; From A Forest Near You (2010) and Voodoo Dance & Other Stories (2011) out on Slum Dunk Music. But this is in fact their 14th album since the band formed in Sao Paulo, back in 1995.

Sonically, the new album sees Tetine's distinctive pop sensibilities freely flowing around an unusual collection of minimalistic electronic pop, discordant disco punk, dark sambas & spoken words pieces.

Recorded and produced by Bruno Verner and Eliete Mejorado between 2010 and 2012, In Loveland With You is one of Tetine's most personal records to date. It features 14 tracks heavy on electronic and organic sounds with funky basslines, drum machines, glacial soundscapes and a very distinctive melodic and harmonic sense. It also brings a darker approach to Tetine's music in terms of lyrics, vocal delivery, structure and atmospherics with less of their luminous tropical punk/ baile funk sound of past records & more of their melancholic electronic pop - without ever loosing its directness and simplicity.

The album features collaborations with Brazilian psychedelic legend Arnaldo Baptista - formerly of legendary Tropicalia band Os Mutantes - guesting on the opening track 'To Burn', and it is heavily influenced by Brazilian marginal filmmaker Rogerio Sganzerla - to whom this record is entirely dedicated.

Don't resist it! You'll surely find music of great beauty.

What makes Tetine so good is that their off-beat, messy quality makes them natural, seemingly effortless, and therefore beautiful”. - URB Magazine

As far back as 1995, the duo were gaining notoriety via their experimental fusion of performance, video and sound. Although that kind of creativity is still essential to their output, they are now very much a band; one that effortlessly fuses post-punk with the sort of sounds associated with Os Mutantes and the bass-fuelled anthems of the favelas. - Danny MacFadden

Ingested with their history in mind, Tetine feels as playful as it is relaxed - soundtracking an artistic project that wears its authenticity, confidence and continuing need for experimentation proudly on its sleeve. Less ‘we do not give a fuck’, more ‘we do not need to give a fuck’ - a crucial difference in a music market riddled with attitude, desperately seeking substance. - Stuart Buchannan

Tetine were my first introduction to the dirty Brazilian sound of Funk Carioca (Rio Funk). Before the days of West Side Gang Bang, before all the Diplo lovin that was going on, these guys were breaking barriers on London radio. - Christopher Lehault Free NYC

Like peeling back the layers of an onion revealing a pungent core and a sense of a reducing one to very real tears Tetine make music that when fully explored reveals much more then one-liners over kooky beats. - Princess Julia

Tetine was my first inspiration in terms of intellect, presence and their amazing performances. It was right there in front of me but it made such a strong impression and I never forgot that was what real music is about: freedom and purity and, of course, in many different ways, FUN! I've never seen something like that coming from Brazil, or actually, anywhere! - Lovefoxx

The gleeful merging of 80's synths, baile funk beats and Bruno Verner's non-singing voice allow them to push over an hour mark - Tim Jonze Q Magazine
