Años Psicodélicos - Various Artists
This is an incredibly strange record - a Peruvian compilation of (mostly) Brazilian music from the 1970s, the Psychedelic Years.
Side one consists of jazzy, funky, synth heavy MPB. There are some wonderfully heavy breaks to be heard here.
Side two, on the other hand, presents us with five choice cuts of Brazilian psyche, progressive rock and good old fashioned rock 'n' roll.
All things considered, I'm preferring the funkier side at the moment, but that could change with my mood.
Here are a couple of tasters:
01 Dudziak – Mosquito
02 H. Belardi – An American In Paris
03 Lott – Baby
04 Orlandivo – Tem De Ser (Tiene Que Ser)
05 Grupo Arco-Yris – Coisas Da Vida (Cosas De La Vida)
06 Ary Lobo – Nego São (Nego Sano)
07 Terço – Ilusão De Ótica (Ilusión Ôptica)
08 Light Reflections – Send It For Tomorrow
09 Mutantes – Tudo Bem (Estás Bien)
10 Tutti Frutti – Nessa Altura Dos Acontecimentos (A Estas Alturas De Los Hechos)
11 Karma – Depois Do Portåo (Después Del Portón)
