New Music from Zuco 103

MY FAVORITE BAND – Zuco 103 – has some new music out. It’s hard to say it’s a new album exactly since it’s kind of a remix of their latest album Carnaval (which is awesome) – but Retouched is still pretty cool. There’s a 30 minute sample on their site – you should check it out.

If you’re not familiar with Zuco 103 you’re missing out. They’re a Amsterdam-based trio that mixes Brazilian and electronica and rhythm and melodies that keep you smiling. I don’t speak Portuguese so I don’t know what most of the songs are about. But you know what? It really doesn’t matter. The music and Lillian Vieira’s voice speak for themselves.

I listen to Zuco often and share it with people all the time. There’s something infectious and carefree about their music and almost always when people hear it they want to know who it is.
