Album Review

Based in Chicago, Dianogah presents a solid batch of melodic and artistic material on Millions of Brazilians, earning rave applause from the band's fan base. The group's third long-play release is a daring mix of fine double bass drum textures, sonic guitar riffs, and spacy, ethereal synthesizers with the help of the gifted producing techniques of John McEntire. Also featured are two bass guitarists, who weave together rhythms and lines with technical skill appealing enough to let the rest of the group and the music as a whole breathe. Counterpoint and circles of melodies and rhythms are captured throughout the record, stirring the listener with awe. As a trio, Dianogah doesn't fail to make this project a work of art in the most genuine sense. The band's instrumental music makes up for the lack of message-bearing lyrics on some of the songs. Though without meaningful lyrics, these songs still hold their shape and vibrancy. Perhaps most compelling about this record is Dianogah's effort to perform offbeat, at times wandering melodies and rhythms, keeping listeners on their toes for more than a few special musical surprises. Millions of Brazilians is a record of good rock & roll taste — intense, uplifting, and sweeping in its scope. The band's brash and passionate attitude is clearly defined and witnessed in the music of this indie release, keeping the best of indie post-rock alive and kicking. ~ Shawn M. Haney, Rovi

damn

dianogah definitely have their own style and it works, the two bass guitars really give off a good vibe. super chill album

Masters of their craft

Dianogah had been hacking it out as a trio for a good while before this release, their 3rd full length. First off, I love this sound--two bass players and a drummer--and hope it is playing on the day I am dead. Perfect harmony and rhythm. John McEntire--of Tortoise and Sea and Cake drums--produced this masterpiece. It's got piano and synth on songs! I love dianogah and you should too.
