El Guincho at The Elbo room Saturday was the best live show I've seen in ages. I can't stop listening to Pop Negro; it's a beautiful thing. I keep getting high off the melodies over and over again. Their live act sounded just as good as their recorded performance does -- if not, better. Their sound is a winning combo of so many of the most beautiful components of music, borrowed from many different realms, many of which I love the most. Here's the enchantedly entertaining video for Bombay, one of the finest dance records around in 2010.

I'm wondering if both of these covers were the work of the same graphic genius. After all, there's the Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis connection between the two records. I just recently rediscovered "Pretty Brown Eyes," which was one of my 12 year old self's favorites -- along with Ralph Tresvant's "Sensitivity," of course.
