ARTO LINDSAY – “Salt”
Righteous Babe, 2004

Wow. This may be my favorite album of the year so far, in any genre...

Many KZSU folks will know Arto Lindsay from his older work with no-wave pioneers DNA, the downtown-jazz Lounge Lizards, or the avant-pop duo Ambitious Lovers. But Lindsay has been putting out solo records for several years (most of which are in KZSU's library), in which he merges all of these diverse yet related styles with the sounds of his native Brazil. In "Salt," Lindsay’s sweet everyman voice hops easily between Portuguese and English in 10 poetic tunes that defy category, but will appeal to fans of modern Brazilian music, innovative pop, downtempo electronica, or almost anything else. If Caetano Veloso spent 30 years in Greenwich Village, he might sound like this. Do not fear the orange sticker! Play this and enjoy!

Every track is excellent.

1. infectious ballad, deceptively simple with stark drum machine + piano
2. sparkly downtempo groove with retro-soul keyboards, sweet vocal
3. midtempo samba-electronica, good percussion, pensive vocal, horns
4. tweaky, stripped-down, hiphoppish backing for a plain vocal ditty
5. rich environment of acoustic guitar & strings; quiet, thoughtful vocal
6. David Byrne-ish: upbeat funky backing, near-spoken Portuguese lyric
7. sinister bassline + choppy/noisy sound effects, simple spoken lyric
8. 30 years of keyboard styles mashed together with a samba-soul beat
9. relaxed tempo, oddball keyboards, processed violin, arrhythmic vocal
10. filtered vocal cuts through complex computerized melodic layers
