Grrrroovy baby!

Is the City of God soundtrack cool or what? My sis burned us a copy last night; I listened to track one while getting dressed for work, and carried on listening when I got here. Am hooked. Now if only I could turn the volume of my speakers WAY UP to do these songs justice. From the Amazon review:

... composer Antonio Pinto (assisted by partner Ed Cortes) has concocted a smart, rhythmically intoxicating cocktail of Brazilian jazz and samba, shaken with a little '70s American funk and R&B and served with cool, tropical flair. Those various styles often melt into each other with a liberating sense of postmodern possibility, giving listeners an experience that's as exotic as it is deceptively familiar.

So Jason Mraz was here last month and Incubus are coming over in a few days, right? Got to thinking who I'd pay good money to see, just in case they saw the light and decided to do shows here. Wishful thinking! ;)

About us

Best described as a Murakami detox support group, we're all fans of the quirkily brilliant Japanese author, Haruki Murakami, and writing about such things as films we've seen recently and books we're reading (not to mention meandering musings on the man's work, of course) helps us to pass time while waiting for the next book from Haruki-baby.
