Constantina join DryCry Records to Release fourth Album ‘Haveno’

DryCry Records proudly present Constantina, who will be releasing their fourth studio album, ‘Haveno’ on DryCry Records 12th March 2012

Constantina are a seven-piece instrumental post-rock band hailing from Brazil. Established in 2003, the band have steadily progressed through four albums, building upon their sound and fan base along the way. With a minimalist and delicate aesthetic, Constantina are now figured as one of the most interesting bands of the new harvest of instrumental post-rock, playing shows across the world. Their arrangements are crafted experimentally, with a clever use of guitars and subtle electronic interference, always open to improvisation.

The group, from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, have had the opportunity to play at dozens of festivals dedicated to independent music in Brazil, and are beginning to play across America and Europe in 2012. In line with the release of Haveno, Constantina will play SXSW, one of the world’s largest new music festivals.

The word Haveno is taken from the international language Esperanto, meaning harbour. The concept of the album is entirely on the comings and goings of the sea and its natural expansion and contraction. The harbour, a place of arrival, is also the site of departure for new paths and new possibilities. The album creates sound images that leave a lull after the storm, but always foresees new journeys.

Recorded by La Petite Chambre independent label in Brazil, Haveno will be released digitally on DryCry Records 12th March 2012. Click below to hear one of the fastastic tracks to be featured on the album, ‘Azul Marinho’.

DryCry Records Autumn 2011 Podcast

The Autumn 2011 podcast is online and available as a free download below:


1. Flume – Possum

Flume, aka Harley Streten, is a 19 year old producer from Sydney, Australia. Creating electronic music of a quality far beyond his age, Flume has been creating a stir on Australian finger to the pulse radio station Triple J. ‘Possum’ can be downloaded for free from the Triple J Unearthed website and his three track Sleepless EP is released on Future Classic.

2. Lana Del Rey – Video Games (Jamie Woon Remix)

We first heard Video Games back in May and instantly took to this amazing track. Since then, Lana Del Rey has rightfully been thrust into the limelight, branded an ‘internet sensation’, and had remixes from the likes of Balam Acab, Joy Orbinson and Mover Shaker. Personally, I was a bit sceptical of remixes of such a stripped, powerful tune, but this Jamie Woon remix is a brilliant take.

3. Lise – Cuando El Tiempo Es La Poesía (Parece Constantina) – When Time is Poetry (Like Constantina)

The first of two tracks included in the podcast from ‘Qualquer Frágil Fio de Fantasia’, the amazing new album from Lise. This track has been featured by the Guardian Music, representing Brazil in the Music Alliance Pact earlier this year.

4. Exitmusic – The Sea

Exitmusic are married-duo Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church from New York City. ‘The Sea’, a particularly dynamic track with haunting melodies and a goth-like feel, is taken from their new EP – ‘From Silence’, which explores ‘themes of loss, both personal and universal, the destruction of nature and the destruction of our own nature’.

5. Bos Angeles – Beach Slalom

Hailing from Boscombe, Bournemouth, Bos Angeles describe themselves as ‘bedroom pop grunge lo-fi post-punk surf’. There is a definite sense of surf packed into this 2:35 track and it will be interesting to see what they release in the future. Beach Slalom is available as a free download from their Bandcamp page.

6. The Touch – Blocks

I saw the Touch play the best part of 6 months ago but keep getting drawn back to the melancholic, Joy Division-esque feel of this particular track. Although receiving remixes from big names such as Neon Electric and Voltaire Twins, the Australian band have not made much impact on UK shores. Their EPs 1.1 and 1.1 Remixes are available on iTunes.

7. ASAP Rocky – Wassup

The new rap talent that has already made a name for himself in the US is fast approaching the UK. Rocky received a shinning review from The Guardian’s New Band of the Day journalist Paul Lester, and reviews of his new material are equally as promising. This particular track was made with Clams Casino and will no doubt be available to download in the near future.

8. Lise – Com a Melhor Das Intenções – With the Best Intentions

Wrapping up the Autumn podcast is another beautiful track from the new Lise album ‘Qualquer Frágil Fio de Fantasia’, which will be released on DryCry Records 29th November.

DryCry Records is thrilled to add another amazing talent to the roster of artists – Lise.

Lise, aka Daniel Nunes, is a Brazilian multi-instrumentalist who creates fantastic post-rock, experimental and electronic instrumental music by blending organic instruments with electronic interference. Lise has been likened to Sigur Rós and Explosions in the Sky.

DryCry Records will release the full length album ‘Qualquer Frágil Fio de Fantasia’ 29th November across the usual outlets. The album was recorded after Daniel’s 2011 SXSW performance with his band Constantina.

Two brand new tracks from the album will be featured on the DryCry Records Autumn Podcast which will be released and free to download from next week.
