New CDs

Two new CDs arrived from Amazon today:

  1. Tanto Tempo by Bebel Gilberto — mellow bossa nova from the daughter of Joao Gilberto. It’s subtle and sweeet music, with down tempo beats enjoyable vocals (even if I don’t understand what she’s saying). One of Amazon’s Best of 2000.`
  2. Turn on the Bright Lights by Interpol — found these guys by browsing related artists from Hot Hot Heat. They’re a British punk/pop group, more ‘atmospheric’ sounding than Hot Hot Heat, and well stated lyrically.
