Cibelle, My Belle
What do you get when you cross modern bossa chanteuse Cibelle with your favorite freak folksters, Devendra Banhart and Seu Jorge? Freak folka nova? Electrobossafolk? Call it what you want, but recognize that these songs successfully blend bossa nova, electronica, and freak folk, and exceed the sum of their parts to become sexy, danceable, and mystical. I'll take this blend of acoustics and electronics over laptop-folk every time.
Cibelle mp3s, with Devendra Banhart and Seu Jorge, from the stunning Shine of Dried Electric Leaves:
