The fifth album from the flagship of the kranky fleet and (dare we say it) one of the most important bands in the world. "E luxo so" (grab your Portuguese-English dictionary) was recorded at Sound of Music studios in Richmond, VA like Labradford and Me media naranja and features contributions from a string quartet (Chris Johnston, Craig Markva, Jamie Evans and Jonathan Morken) and Peter Neff on dulcimer. Subtle blips of percussion and samples interweave through blurry guitars, bubbly electric piano and plangent organ and some gorgeous piano. Six songs. Labradford stand alone.
