Gremmy Awards 2015: Best Modern Instro Record

Alright, you can breathe now, I know some of you were wondering when this was going to make an appearance. The Madeira's cultural capital in this small little corner of music is probably right behind Man? ...or Astro-man and Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, and they haven't stumbled yet. Ivan Pongracic's guitarwork is as nimble and flowery as ever, perhaps even reaching a new knock-you-flat level of intensity on "Caravela", easily one of my favorite tracks this year. The whole album is huge, has a legendary feel to it, and bounding it together is a relentless pulsating rhythm.
