Curumin's third album employs the same whiplash-inducing experimentalism of his fantasy world JapanPopShow. That means bells and whistles, Gypsy horns and Indian chants, industrial beats and shimmering samba grooves -- and that's just "Treme Terra." Elsewhere, otherworldly, acid-washed instrumental tracks and space-age dub-funk ("Doce") cozy up to pop-friendly bossa cuts like "Passarinho." Two albums of this kind of eclecticism can sound a bit samey-samey at first glance (and Arrocha isn't as tight), but closer listens (which Curumin thrives on) unearth plenty of innovative new nuggets.
