Gus Monsanto - Karma Café
(S/R – 2017)
Cracking solo artist from Brazil who comes across like a more happy, uptempo version of the Manic Street Preachers meets Robbie Williams like vocal sound on this 14 tracker debut.
Well crafted and placed together songs from the opening title track ‘Karma Café’ and elsewhere there’s the string filled ‘Elephant In The Room’.
Not to mention the uptempo, cowbell featured rocker ‘A Girl I Know’; the gorgeous ballad that is ‘Fel’ or the marvellous riffed ‘Change The World’.
