Considering her unquestionable talent and light-hearted appeal, Joyce Moreno holds a relatively low-profile in Europe. It’s a shame: Brasileiras Canções is as lovely a summer soundtrack as any artist will produce this year. Crucially, at no point does Moreno indulge in her swoop and soar vocals, which possess a range capable of aimless loop-de-loops and showy incantation. Like a white wine with three small ice cubes in, her latest record gives you little reason to feel anything other than a cool spirit. Not content with simply being ‘vibey,’ Brasileiras Canções ends up titillating the dancier antennae. It ends without an inappropriate note in forty minutes.
A favourite: ‘Tantas Vidas’
