Brazilian Money – This Is Not A Dream

Intentionally or not, Brazilian Money’s anxiously awaited follow up to Friendly Neighbour brings to mind the timeless words of Gabriel Garcia Lorca: “Life is not a dream. Careful! Careful! Careful!” And if you were sleeping, you will surely be awoken by the lead jam on This Is Not A Dream, “Give Up That Dog,” a schizophrenic flurry of instructions: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! IT’S HERE IF YOU WANT IT! Beautiful. Garrett Johnson’s song writing effortlessly buzzes with a constant surging energy. And believe me, the live show carries that over, which is why you should go pick this album up at his dual release with yesterday’s blogged about band, Peace, this saturday at Pawn Shop! HYPE! Joining them is Sans Aids and Jessica Jalbert. It doesn’t get much better than that. More info on that right here. Check it out and cop it:
