Muito, muito obrigada (thank you!) to everyone who came to celebrate the launch of Bossa Nova Sunset Club with us at The Tivoli. It was an incredible night for the band. Our love and thanks to Roda de Choro and Cigany Weaver for filling the gorgeous with their amazing music
You can now order your copy of the album in digital, CD or Limited Edition Vinyl at our BANDCAMP page.
For 21 years, The View From Madeleine's Couch has forged a glorious and lush sonic path through Brazilian jazz and bossa nova, remaining a unique musical entity through their unconventional lineup (which features the vibraphone as its lead instrument), and their commitment to playing this music with integrity and respect, whilst staying true to their own style and sound.
Vocalist and percussionist Anje West has long been Australia's queen of bossa nova, and her musical and life partner, Kym Ambrose, is one of the finest vibes players in the country. Combined with the superb musicianship and unparalleled experience of their bandmates, Madcouch remains at the pinnacle of Brazilian music in Australia.
"They've got the Brazilian spirit, and they're really doing this very well" - Mazinho Ventura (bassist, Marcos Valle)
"I’m loving every track . Opening with the classic Garota De Ipanema, Anje and the distinguished band just capture every Brazilian flavour, colour, rhythm and romantic mood of a nation that has produced some of the greatest musicians in the last 100 years. You can feel the love from the first note. It is certainly a landmark album contributing to the history of Brazilian-influenced Australian music.
Congratulations, best 2019 release!" - Helen Simons.
