Kassin+2 Futurismo

This album title was meant to be a bit of a joke–the songs here are unabashedly retro bossa melodies laid against lightly propelling percussion. But while Kassin+2 pays homage to their Brazilian roots, the album does have modern flourishes, including the toy-like sounds on “Quando Nara Ri,” the guitar riffs on the spacey “Ponto Final,” the quasi-surf-rock “Homem ao Mar,” and the electronic effects of “Samba Machine.” Sometimes, though, the songs don’t quite get past a bland sort of pleasantness, as on “Mensagem,” where a tad more actual futurism might have been helpful.
