Almost two years after returning to the Bay Area following graduation from Wesleyan University, the members of O Presidente are back with their second full length album, a nine-track gem entitled Crazy Swells, and the band is celebrating this Saturday with an album release party at Bottom of the Hill. The Tambo Rays and Hot Flash Heat Wave support.
The SF-via-Middletown, Connecticut quintet surprised their supporters this past Tuesday by dropping that new record four days early exclusively on Bandcamp, just days after offering Crazy Swells’ lead single and opening track “Party With Me”. The album picks up where 2013’s Clube de Futebol left off, mixing elements of doo-wop, Brazilian Tropicália, pop, and garage rock goodness into a sound that is all their own here in the Bay.
Listen to Crazy Swells below, and then get full details on O Presidente’s album release party at Bottom of the Hill including artwork done by none other than The Tambo Rays/WATERS’ Sara DaMert.
