Seu Jorge and Almaz

Seu Jorge and Almaz by Seu Jorge
Released: Jul 2010
Label: Now Again Records
Stick Brazil's most idiosyncratic singer, Seu Jorge, with the experimental dudes of Almaz (with members of Nacao Zumbi) and just listen to things get weird. This album is all covers, and that frees the group to wreak havoc on hallowed ground, starting with a Jorge Ben cover, which sounds like it's been flooded with river mud, to a nearly unrecognizable version of MJ's "Rock With You." Even Jorge's take on Kraftwerk's "The Model" actually rivals that group for ironic detachment. This is like an injection of darkness into pop music's veins and, as such, an indescribable relief to listen to.
