Whereas Da Lata’s first album, <I>Songs from the Tin</I>, was a trip to Brazil, their second album, <I>Serious</I>, is an African safari. The lyrics and the rhythms now skew towards that continent, yet Da Lata still manage to make it sound both contemporary and modern. The underappreciated Jhelisa Anderson makes an appearance on “Reeling,” a broken beat workout and on “Something,” in a duet with Nina Miranda. The electronic percussion on <I>Serious</I> is much more pronounced, which undercuts the authenticity which made <I>Songs from the Tin</I> a standout. And while that’s disappointing, the delicate instrumentation on “If U Don’t Know” goes a long way in making up for that loss. Still an excellent album.
