This was possible by recording live with equipment from the 1950's at Pete Curry's (Los Straightjackets) studio in Los Angeles. The production is his third instrumental work and the first recorded in the U.S. Tunes like "Viva Waimea" feel like a Summer on the beach, an Elvis Presley movie with a feet in Waimea Bay. "The Dog and the Squirrel" is inspired in the nervous interaction between a friend's dog and the electric squirrels that live in D.C., where Erbetta lived since 2006 before moving to Brooklyn in 2009. "Tico-tico no Fuba", a classic Brazilian tune immortalized by Hollywood's Carmen Miranda in the 40's, gained here a surf music touch, and pays tradition to it's composer, Zequinha de Abreu, who comes from the Sao Paulo countryside as Erbetta's family. Others are balads like "Oil Man", which sounds like a funeral song for a very greedy man. In the past few months, the 37-year-old Brooklyn-based guitar player has been performing in NY with a trio includes Andrew Borger on the drums and Tim Lutzel on Bass.
Together, they hit clubs like Nublu, Rockwood Music Hall and The Living Room in Manhattan, Barbès, Jalopy Theater and Sunny's in Brooklyn. Erbetta is also a producer and composer for TV and videogame soundtracks and singer/guitarist of the Brazilian trio Los Pirata. . Read more on Last.fm.
