Ela by Dom La Nena
Released: Jan 2013
Label: Six Degrees
Brazilian chanteuse Dom La Nena has a voice so wispy and beguilingly breathy, you wonder she doesn't hyperventilate. Plus, she's a cellist, so you know what you get on her debut: whimsy by the vintage bicycle-load. Dark circus waltzes with girlish voices tread familiar terrain, and the café breeziness of "Buenos Aires" is so iconic, you can picture the bereted child at a nearby zoo. But she interjects that loveliness with serious sensuality, like the title track's spent expirations or "O Vento," a fairyland haunted by lurking strings that sounds like some kind of gorgeous, enviable nightmare.
