Gusttavo Lima E Você - Ao Vivo (CD)
Released: Jan 2013
Label: Som Livre
If Michel Telo is sertanejo's sweet-faced, slyly saucy singer-songwriter, then Gusttavo Lima is its rock star -- down to the tattoos and the wailing guitar (at least on "Calafrio"). All right, there's more to this Brazilian pretty boy than his rock god stance: He can also pull off everything from sunny acoustic jams to contemplative ballads (check out that manly falsetto on "Fora Do Comun") to dubby accordion grooves. And on tracks like the swaggeringly soulful "Inventor Dos Amores" (complete with gospel choir!), it's easy to hear why that husky, strident tenor gets the fans screaming.
