Monday Michiru – Brasilified (Billboard Japan)


Wonderful work from Monday Michiru, a record that reminds us once again why we love her music so much! The album’s got Monday serving up all the Brazilian sounds you’d guess from the title, but always with that positive, upbeat style that we’ve always dug in her presentation; a vibrant sort of energy that’s very different than not only other singers of Brazilian music, but also from most of Michiru’s contemporaries on the underground scene! The instrumentation is quite jazzy throughout, thanks to arrangements from Simone Giuliani and Alex Sipiagin, but there’s also plenty of groove, too. A great mix of Brazilian roots and jazzier funk, of the sort you’d find on older projects from staples like Gilles Peterson or Patrick Forge. Michiru’s vocals sound better than ever in this setting, reaching for the skies with a new sense of glory. Titles include “Zanzibar”, “Bossamore”, “Celebrate”, “New Morning”, “Beautiful People”, “Sunrise”, “Things I Say”, and “Bedtime Story” (reviewed by Dusty Groove, Inc. – edited by Michael Terzian)
