The debut solo album by Rodrigo Amarante made its first appearance on the CMJ Top 200 yesterday! The record blends his South American roots with the global influences he’s picked up throughout his travels with bands Los Hermanos & Little Joy, and as a member of Devendra Banhart‘s backing-band. KCRW handpicked the French-sung “Mon Nom” off his album Cavalo for Today’s Top Tune. They say Cavalo “has a dynamic sound that transcends the language he’s singing in”, read the feature here. Rodrigo Amarante needs your support this week – highlight this inspiring album today.
