Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Sunshine Barato serves as a quick, delicious escape, offering repeated doses of the instant pleasure derived from the perfect two-and-a-half minute pop song. But it also contains a message to take back to our real, often troubled world: there's plenty of cheap sunshine available for all of us to share- love don't cost a thing.

On paper it may not seem like the best idea to combine sunny bossa nova and dark sensitive indie pop, but New York’s Mosquitos managed to get the combination just right. The follow-up to the band’s self-titled debut, Sunshine Barato is another slice of disarmingly simple songs filled with acoustic guitar, simple beats, surf guitar and whirling Wurlitzer organ. Quickly and effectively wedging songs into the subconscious, melodies are pushed to the fore. The complementary song lyrics are poignant little vignettes typically about boy likes girl -- singer Juju Stulbach’s whispery vocals often play the femme fatale or swooning maiden to Chris Root's everyman warble, giving thoughtful context to the stories. (There's also lots of astrological, weather and seasonal references – the title means "cheap sunshine.") The last album's "Boombox" made waves as an indie hit as well as music for a couple of national TV ads and a spot on the O.C., but the music here on Sunshine Barato is just as fun and infectious. –-Tad Hendrickson

5.0 out of 5 stars More fun , love and sunshine by the mosquitos November 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Mosquitos have put fun, love and sunshine to a latin beat, thrown in tones from the 70's, 80's and 90's to make for a delightful mix of many tunes and sounds. This cd will keep you going through the winter, it's delivers as promised, sunshine barato (cheap sunshine) i'll take it anyway I can get it.

thanks mosquitos

4.0 out of 5 stars Prognosis: Warm Sunshine Coming Your Way .... November 17, 2004
By JazzCat
Format:Audio CD
As an avid MPB, bossa nove, and Brazilian jazz fan I was prepared not to like this, having heard some hype on this band. But after repeated listening, I found myself humming some of the tunes on this album, which is usually a good sign. In a word it's cute. Sugar, sweet, poppy, whatever you want to call it, it's different and it catches your attention and puts a smile on your face. Bossa nova and brazilian jazz it ain't, but who cares when your ears are being tickled? This CD would appeal to listeners who like both indie-pop and world music, not necesarily hard-core MPB or bossa nova fans. In short, a great second effort that should capture some deserved attention and open the door to other great Brazilian sounds. I can't wait to see them live. Recommended!

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice environmental music June 4, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First time I listened to this CD I liked a lot, but after 3 or 4 times listening to I turned it off after the second track. I think that it's some repetitive and noisy. Maybe this guys were in a rush when launching the disc.
