I am lucky enough to have gotten my hands on Buscador, his second album. It's got a lot of horns and beautiful guitar parts, classy Brazilian backbeats and sweeping keys. But the thing that hits me most about this album is the vocals. I don't speak Portugese, but it's a beautiful language that always seems to lend itself to singing. I think there's something magical about thesee songs - they've got a lot of great backing vocal parts and understated harmonies that just work so well together. The title track is my favorite, it has a really nice descending chorus with airy flutes, what sounds like cavaquinho, and a shuffling backbeat that you'll almost never hear in American music. His song "Tristeza" begins with some beautiful natural ambient sounds and has some fantastic electric guitar solos toawrd the end with heaps of phaser pedal. The album ends with the smooth "Fin" which is almost like a Yann Tiersen-esque French lullaby. Head over to his website for more details.
