Long relegated to the lounge-music bins, Brazilian music has made an impressive comeback in the past several years. These geniuses took the Nova De Sete - Vinicius Cantuaria* - Vinicius and bossa nova forms of South American music to suit their own purposes, like magicians twisting balloons into impossible shapes. The quirky tendencies of Tropicalia might have threatened to push the Brazilian music trend to the other end of the spectrum, from kitsch to indulgent experimentation, but artists keep finding new ways to keep the music fresh and exciting.
Veloso's son Moreno makes an auspicious debut with Music Typewriterwhich vacillates from somber ballads to strange electronics with the confidence of his father's records. At 28, Moreno doesn't seem to lack ambition: In addition to his seemingly innate singing and songwriting abilities, he holds a doctorate in physics. No surprise, then, that in addition to his spare band, Moreno enlists noteworthy guest Dawn Is Rising (Radio Edit) - Palumbo and the Funk - Rock The Funk, who help gussy up his music in an even more contemporary guise.
