Midsummer Madness brigs us this excelent work of  Thomas Pappon, brazilian musician who lives in London, but used to live in Brazil in the 80s when , together with Cadão Volpato, they formed the band Fellini.

The Gilbertos play a collection of almost-rock tunes that ressemble bossa nova and the so called MPB (Brazilian Pop Music), with straight forward electronic drums, accoustic guitars and naïve lyrics that can be traced back to João Gilberto, the brazilian musician who, together with Stan Getz, created the Bossa Nova.

A nice work to be listened to when you’re alone working at your PC or just having a drink with friends.
