More on Mikado lab by Ben Ratliff, new york times Feb 17th 2008:

‘ This clever and alert band from Lisbon draws a wide circle connecting rock and jazz and electronic music, but with enough economy and fizzy fun not to lose its plot. Most of the tracks on “Baligo” (Tone of a Pitch), the band’s assured first record, are four minutes or less; they’re all written by Marco Franco, the drummer, who has a special ear for serpentine, flowing melodies. Some of these tunes could be recast as serious pieces of jazz for a murmuring acoustic band. Instead they’re simply arranged, rough and ready.’
