While much of Lusine's output, including his upcoming second album for Ghostly, A Certain Distance, is deep in the bubbly ping of bedroom electronics, his new single "Two Dots", a collaboration with Finnish singer Vilja Larjosto is more lucid, and more, well, Brazilian. Though he's a solidly American dude, Lusine—when he's not writing soundtracks—must be listening to a lot of Bebel Gilberto and getting open. He cuts up Larjosto's vocal into something a little scat, a little sad. Pretty sure this is downtempo, actually. Pretty sure downtempo is cool again now that Portishead is cool again. Oh, that was triphop. Maybe Lusine is triphop.
