If only songs were sung/ To guide the doubtful ones/ Beyond the rough/ Where not as much is good enough” from Unattainable

Highlight Review: “.. calypso-flavored samba rock is the result of a collaborative effort between Rodrigo Amarante of Los Hermanos, Fabrizio Moretti of The Strokes…their self-titled debut is nostalgically soothing, painstakingly authentic, and without a doubt one of the easiest listens of the year.” – read more at American Songwriter
