Check Out Matt Surfin and Friends
Pedro the Lion came back this year, and if David needed an up-and-coming young act to turn to on tour, then he should look at Matt Surfin’ and Friends. On this number Matt has his friend Rui Gabriel singing the verses in Portuguese, but it’s his whispered tones that seem most like they were meant for a fireside chat. In the music you have the same vibe; it simple and understated, though it carries this natural melody that ultimately endears it to listeners. You want old school Pedro? Go here instead, and look for the self-titled LP via Community Records/Muscle Beach.
