about

"I made the artwork of this album, this time by mixing real liquid mercury and pomegranate juice and taking close-up pictures."

We've never met Marcel (aka Nuvem Leopardo), but we can tell hes a great guy and his music is very cool.
Plus he's from Brazil and lives in Argentina, which makes him exotic. We like that (among Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones [Brian Jones era]), he lists seminal 60s psychedelic Brazilian band Os Mutantes as his favourite of all time. You can hear the influence - a bit of Brazillian groove in his tunes. As far as current stuff - he digs Mink Mussel Creek from Perth and Knei from Argentina (check them out).

Nuvem Leopardo translates to Cloud Leopard and is one of Marcel's solo projects started in 2012 (along with Coyote Indigo which is more experimental and lo-fi).

"I'm heavily influenced by the art and psychedelic culture, old and new. My desire is to lead an electric soul to the outskirts of my body as music, manifesting these visions, bringing the messages as enchantments, opening and cleaning the eyes and doors; and with that healing myself and possibly others."

Me too.
Revolver Mercurio was recorded between February and April 2015 in Buenos Aires where Marcel now lives with his girlfriend. He used a bunch of effects - fuzz face, analogue delays, analogue reverbs, a moogerfooger for modulations and a one-of-a-kind Geloso tube amp head for that final crunchiness.

He wanted you to download this EP for free, which we think is dope. Do it right now...
