A small disco ball hovers over Roberto Carlos Lange as he slouches in his windowless studio one afternoon last December. In a yellow beanie and tie-dye socks—the rented space is a no-shoe zone—Lange is affably lowkey, the type of interviewee who seems as genuinely interested in my life as I am in his. Even with coronavirus cases spiking at the time, he cracks jokes and makes small talk about what he’s been listening to—cult heroes like Venezuelan jazz singer María Márquez and ’70s UK songwriter Labi Siffre—easing any mid-pandemic social tension.
