Artist of the Week: Brazil’s Beady-Eyed Diva, Daniel Peixoto

He’s the Portuguese Hedwig. Cachaça country’s Diamond Rings. The dudely Lovefoxxx. And now, due to your vigorous voting, he’s our Artist of the Week. Congratulations, Daniel Peixoto!

Daniel is Brazil’s fishnet/spandex underwear/make-up/blonde tressel-donning gyrating posterboy of electropop fusion, and though he’s no longer the frontman of his former band Montage, his new solo act hasn’t changed him a bit. His debut album Shine is a blend of club pop and headier industrial beats that hearken a dank, debauched club in a Rio speakeasy. Warning, even conservative listeners may feel inclined to take it all off, so none of this is SFW.
