Eron Falbo - 73

Eron Falbo is an enigma. He's from Brazil, but you'd never guess that by the way he sings. He vocalizes with Leonard Cohen's cynicism, yet he combines this emotional approach with a Lou Reed snarl. Maybe it's no coincidence that he name drops The Velvet Underground during "A Baby-Step of Faith" off his debut album, 73.

Bob Dylan's famous producer, Bob Johnston, produced 73, and you can pick up a distinct Dylan influence on the track "Any Fool a Man," which sounds a little like "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat," part 2. Falbo is at his most Cohen-esque during "I'll See You Again," where he talk-sings in a most Cohen-y way. This track even features a wailing female backing vocal, which would also not be all that out of place on any Cohen track.

Also, much like Dylan and Cohen, Falbo can be likably cryptic with his lyrics. For instance during "I'll See You Again" he throws out the line, "In a battle of words a coward came in third in a race of two." (Honestly, I'm not really sure what that means, but I like it).

It's been said Bob Johnston came out of retirement to produce this album, and based upon the results, it was well worth his time to reenter the game. 73 is a gem.
