Love To Bleed dropped “Last of My Kind” in the Fall of 2023. The album landed like a thunderclap amidst a sea of radio silence. Spotify, Indigenous In Music, and Native 1 radio stations embraced the album like a long-lost friend, while Pacifica Radio Network’s “Center Stage Spotlight” beamed it across 225 stations.

This album, produced by Mauro Martins de Oliveira, takes listeners on a profound exploration of multifaceted issues, highlighting Love To Bleed as a concerned global citizen.

The first track, “Quetzalcoatl Meets the Sea,” sets a grandiose mood with cinematic orchestral elements that flow into an exuberant drumbeat and enticing electric guitar. Then there’s “Open,” which takes a different turn. With glistening guitars circling around Oliveira’s deep, reflective vocals, it’s like wading through a musical fog. Before fading into a hazy, dreamy area, the music rises and falls, creating a tangible sense of tension. In the middle of the album’s emotional storm, there is a quiet moment of reflection.

“Winds,” the album’s closing song, is a sad farewell. A soaring female voice and the cry of eagles set the stage for a somber reflection on war, destruction, and loss. The rich vibrato of the vocals pulls you into the heart of the pain. And lets you off with a powerful emotional punch.

Behind this powerful music is Mauro Martins de Oliveira, a man whose activism permeates every note. Oliveira’s experiences bring depth and authenticity to his music, from writing for Bill Clinton’s inauguration to his involvement in Native American social justice issues.

“Last of My Kind” isn’t an easy listen. It’s raw, it’s real, and it’s unflinchingly honest. It makes you face the facts of our society. In the end, it gives you a ray of hope and reminds us that we are all capable of change. I recommend giving it a listen.
