Arto Lindsay for many years distinguished himself as an avant-garde guitarist, which basically means that there was really something special about his particular variation of incomprehensible six-string skronk. Personally, I’ve always found him to be the most melodious of his pack, and his recent forays into Brazilian music have been nothing short of breath-taking. Prize contains an even dozen Portuguese-flavored tracks, gentle futuristic compositions that expertly weave Lindsay’s experimental sensibilities with Brazilian jazzisms and eerie touches of ambient jungle minimalism. The new Brazil.
