Review - Sudaka

Artist: Ramiro Musotto

Label: Fast Horse
Media: CD
Format: Album
WorkNameSort: Sudaka

In the great tradition of Brazilians making totally freaky music that people just might catch up to in a decade or so, Ramiro Musotto fuses organic percussion, electronic sequences, disassembled pop, left-field samples and a severe sense of musical disorientation into a wholly unique album. Tracks like "Botellero" and "Caminho" fly by in a haze of fractured familiarity; the rest of the album is built on largely homogenic beats that are accented by a dizzying array of multi-ethnic touches and Musotto's millennium-jumping style.
