More Modern Bossa by Marisa

Hello, Smudge? I think you are so hot. I want you to do a post on me.

I listened to Marisa Monte's Universo ao Meu Redor all day yesterday, and I plan on doing the same today. It's one of my favorite CDs of this year. Marisa has the perfect voice for bossa nova, and though this album is tinted with electronic effects to give it a modern feel, the power and sexiness of the old form comes through, as you'll hear in O Bonde do Dom, in the interplay between voice and cello. Statue of Liberty is not as sexy, but it's great fun, and David Byrne sings on it.

Own it.
