Review

Just in time for summer, RNT drops a 3-tracker of tropical heat from Brazilian outfit Balako. Although relative newcomers, their production prowess has been known to their Rio de Janeiro musical community and beyond for some time, and is on full display here. The A-side showcases their knack for modernizing the canonical Brazilian MPB sound, from the deceptively demonic build of Batuque, to the acidic-leaning lilt of Deixa Acontecer. The flip side takes a hard turn left of field with Honey Honey Honey, a 9 minute opus of Afro-Brazilian disco insanity, primed for those balmy summertime roof parties.
