Maybe Chris Root really did get his love of Brazilian music in the womb, as the publicity for this record claims. Wherever it came from, it's real, although his playing is more a sketchy American approximation of the subtle rhythms of samba and bossa nova than the real complex thing. Not that it matters. His songs here, on Mosquitos, have an aura of joy — often childlike — that's echoed by the voice of Juju Stulbach (very breathy and seductive) and the keyboard work of Jon Marshall Smith.

In their own quiet way, Mosquitos are quite revolutionary — and great fun.

Root claims he was an early adopter of the relaxed Brazilian way, coming...
