Ana Frango Eletrico's petit cult classic masterpiece Little Electric Chicken Heart from 2019, which was only ever released on vinyl and CD in Brazil and Japan, has fast become a collector's item.

Well received by fans, DJs, and reviewers on release, the album's reputation has been slowly building ever since, gaining a Latin Grammy nomination in 2020, and now solidly cementing itself as a gem of contemporary Brazilian music.

Across the album's nine tracks, Ana blends elements and influences from MPB, Tropicalia, indie rock, punk and pop, forging them together with a sumptuous dose of their signature style. The finesse of 'Saudade' kicks off the LP, one of Ana's most known tracks to a non-Brazilian audience. A sublime opener, beginning with a spellbinding piano solo before transcending into a beautiful dream-laden slice of warmth, complete with luscious jazzy horns and deft vocal delivery. 'Promessa e previsoes' follows, the only track on the album not to be written by Ana, instead being penned by Chico Franca. It's a swelling and sweeping twilight groover, building and breaking across absorbing peaks.

A short, sweet and refreshing record, that leaves nothing to waste, marrying playful ideas with poignant themes. Little Electric Chicken Heart is a future classic and will beguile fans of '70s Brazilian recordings, Gal Costa, Mac DeMarco, Stereolab, Superorganism, Caetano Veloso and more.
