Señor Coconut "Around the World"
On his 2000 album, El Baile Alemán, Señor Coconut (a.k.a. Atom or Uwe Schmidt) offered Latin electronic covers of electronic godfathers Kraftwerk, replete with horns and sauntering samba rhythm. Now he takes a musical journey through the work of near-distant pop favorites like Prince and the Eurythmics, among others, on Around the World. On November 18th, Naçional Records will reissue the former El Baile Alemán, digitally and on CD, alongside his latest. On this namesake track off of the new album, Señor pays jazzy tribute to Daft Punk. Whoever thought that those gleefully simple lyrics wouldn't fit anything but synthesized robot vocals is in for a fun surprise. Lulu McAllister
