My pal just sent me the link of this yesterday and I was jazzed as all hell to see it. Bonifrate is a Brazilian musician that outside of his solo work is in the outstanding band Supercordas. Admittedly I do vaguely know Bonifrate from years ago downloading music over p2p. However, I am never unbiased on this blog, so it hardly makes a difference if he is an acquaintance. Um Futuro Inteiro is one stellar example of lo-fi psychedelic pop. It is completely in Portuguese but not understanding lyrics has never diminished the enjoyment of an album for me in the past and this remains true when I hear Bonifrate's beautiful vocals. Truly an exceedingly skillfully crafted album that really shows how great stripped down psych-pop can be. I'm raving for a reason, pilgrims, for it is so fine.
