Dirty Projectors - Super Joao (12" Vinyl EP)
Super João is dedicated to João Gilberto, the Brazilian guitarist and singer who innovated Brazilian music in the late ‘50s in part by transposing Afro-Caribbean drum patterns to the right (fingerpicking) hand of the guitar. Super João is about beautiful and surprising chord progressions, long-form melodies, and nylon-string acoustic guitar. With intimate production and understated but deep songwriting, Super João is Life Is What Happens! quietly confident core.
