My thoughts… I only just recently found out about Deia Casseli’s post-Agnela solo project! I loved Agnela and, now, Deia Casseli is my new favorite Brazilian rock chick! Projecto Paralelo [trans. “side project”] was recorded while Cassalli was still fronting her former band. The album’s breezy acoustic sound is good, but Sujeira Visceral‘s alt-rock is much better! In fact, the EP is one of my favorite downloads of 2015!
