Morada de Pájaros: Latin Folk for all you romantics
I’m a sucker for any sad accordion waltz played with delicate piano and mournful vocals. Well played, Morada de Pájaros.
What would Joni Mitchell sound like covering Nick Drake with Bon Iver’s banjo player and percussionist? Whatever that is, Buenos Aires’ Karina Vismara would smoke ’em. She has a voice, and it’s never caught trying to justify boring guitar playing or any old trick we’ve heard a million times. Vismara’s secret weapon is in her writing, for she knows when to move from haunting coffee-shop fingerpicking folkie to I’m Gonna Bang And Wail On My Guitar And Scream Without Raising My Voice And I Will Devour The Pin That You Can Hear Drop When I Play. She’s that good.
