ARTO LINDSAY WINS LATIN GRAMMY; RIGHTEOUS BABE TO RELEASE HIS ALBUM INVOKE IN JUNE 2002Created: 07/02/12 Created: 2/27/2002
Legendary bossa nova/noise-rock experimentalist and Righteous Babe artist Arto Lindsay was awarded a Latin Grammy for his production work on Marisa Montes album Memorias, Cronicas e Declaracoes de Amor. The record won in the "Best Brazilian Contemporary Pop Album" category. Congratulations, Arto! Invoke, Lindsays brand new album, will be released on Righteous Babe Records on June 25, 2002. It will be the follow-up to 1999s Prize, which was Artos Righteous Babe debut, and the labels first foray into music other than that of Ani DiFranco. Picking up where Prize left off, Invoke continues Lindsays exploration of guitar-laden, Brazilian pop soundscapes, melding his avant-Eno-noise roots with laid-back Tropicalia rhythms. In other words, its really good. For more info on Invoke, stay tuned to www.righteousbabe.com and www.artolindsay.com.
