Today was a rough one. Maybe Labor Day will be better. I’ll be off, at least. To ease us into the holiday, how about some of the best Brazilian pop you’ve never heard? Carlos Dafé is the man, for this song alone, though really all of Venha Matar Saudades (1978) is amazing and danceable. Good luck finding it. I can’t even remind how I came by this record, years ago, which means it probably came from a Brazilian music blog I once subscribed to or some illegal Blogspot source. Whaddaya gonna do? Well, I could let you in on a great track, couldn’t I? So, that’s what I’m doing. Happy Labor Day.
