Marco Busato is a Brazilian-born, London-based singer-songwriter / multi-instrumentalist (please don’t confuse him with canceled artist Marco Borsato from the Netherlands), who is just in time to make your summer a bit better with his first solo album Night Of My Times. You’ll hear nine original, sunny guitar pop songs rooted in the 70’s, inspired by the psych, surf, soul, mod and tropicalia greats (the entertaining “influences” playlist includes Kevin Ayers, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Os Mutantes, Love, Allah-Las, Chris Bell, etc.) – perfect tunes from a sympathetic music maker that make you forget your worries for a while. “Be high and low, not right or wrong”, he sings in Sunken Ships, and for someone who likes to be right, I’ll think about that again when the sun goes down. Anyway, if only the beach clubs would play these tracks instead of the usual electronic noise pollution, how right would that be?
Night Of My Times is out now digitally and on vinyl LP through Bickerton Records.
