The music of Brooklyn vocalist Xenia Rubinos is like some brilliant mash-up of Stereolab, Os Mutantes and the best tunes from Sesame Street. Borrowing from Latin rhythms, punkish experimentalism and pop playfulness, Rubinos creates an awesome sound that's as much grounded as it is otherworldly. On this track from her EP Elephant, Rubinos blends nursery-rhyme-esque lyricism with quirky, polyrhythmic funkiness.
