artworkThis 2004 album from Brazil's Autoramas is really good, and they include a couple of very cool instros born of surf and Latin rhythms.
Picks: Panair Do Brasil, Guitarrada

Track by Track Review

Panair Do Brasil dotdotdotdot
Surf Wave (Instrumental)

Crisp dry rhythm guitar rings in a backing pattern that's very friendly, and fits perfectly amid the graceful bass and excellent drums. The lead guitar is modulated for a slightly off kilter sound. The pace is relaxed, the melody very good, and the mix pleasing. All in all, "Panair Do Brasil" is an engaging instro.

Guitarrada dotdotdotdot
Surf Wave (Instrumental)

Dry muted notes yield slowly to a gently gritty double picked melody line. "Guitarrada" is part surf, and part Latin. While not overly melodic, it sure is enjoyable and original.
