Lindsay, Arto – “Prize ” – [Righteous Babe Records]

Arto’s fourth solo excursion into Brazilian-flavored pop is every bit as stylish and perhaps a bit more dissonant than past efforts, with those patented guitar distortions creeping even further into the mix. I really like the contrast between the smooth vocals and the shredding guitar…here’s hoping Arto continues along this path. Lyrics are in English and Portuguese, and just as impressionistic as ever. Guest appearances from Eyvind Kang, Vinicius Cantuaria, and former partner Peter Scherer, among others. Judging by the amount of label-hopping Arto’s done (Rykodisc, Bar/None, and now Righteous Babe), I gather these albums aren’t realizing their full “commercial potential.” Too damn bad.
