Canhoto Dourado - "Sun Tans and Moon Burns"

Canhoto Dourado dropped his first solo debut album, Sinistra, last Friday. Fresh from the college scene, he boasts a 20 -track album, done entirely on electronic equipment. An eclectic array of sounds are interwoven through each of the tunes, giving it a spontaneous theme. After my first listen through, I noticed he incorporates a lot of ambient backdrop coupled with semi-glitchy effects and beats. Honestly, I am not exactly sure what I feel when listening to his tunes, which almost never happens, but I like that. It makes me think about the song in a deeper level.

Djembe-like drums and a soft, pulsating ambient sound gives the start to the track  "Sun Tans & Moon Burns." With an affected snare and bass, it pulls together a mystical image that conjures in your mind when listening. It loops for a majority of the song, though there are subtle changes in the beats. Give him so love and hit the play button to start something fresh in the crowded electronic world.
