The fifth album by Uruguayan/New York singer songwriter Juan Wauters, and it’s a subtle doozy. Smooth, quirky, full of good feeling, humour and pathos in his epic quest to diarise the world around him.

Using a familiar format gluing tracks together with societal snippets, field recordings, YouTube clips and vox pops, the album channels all sorts of influences from yacht-rock, hip-hop, Latin, even Country and Western. He collaborates sublimely with friends from the North American alternative scene such as Mac DeMarco and Cola Boyy. The whole album has a groove even in the most introspective solo folk numbers. Definitely check out the current single Real On The Ol’ Tube; it left me very smiley, as does this release.
