The late ’60s in Brazil produced an explosion of new sounds and ideas that still reverberate throughout the world… during that time, Os Mutantes’ creative cannibalism produced psychedelic gems unlike anything else in the world. They were exactly what their name implies: a mutant genetic recombination of elements of John Cage, The Beatles, and Bossa Nova. A creature too strange and beautiful to live for very long, but too strong ever to fade away. It lives again.
In this compilation you will only hear the Mutantes at the best and most humorou phases of their career ” a surprisingly creative rock band that even in the 90s counts such bands as L7, Redd Kross, the Posies and Stereolab, not to mention the late Kurt Cobain, among its fans.Os Mutantes music is as original and beautiful as anything being made anywhere… and yet its always pop… and pop at its very best and most innovative.”
