As reported today, legendary Brazilian psychedelic band Os Mutantes are coming out with a brand new album! It's been 35 years since their last one, so, yeah it's been a while. The new album is called Haih and will be out on September 8. Want to hear a song? Check it out:
Os Mutantes - "Teclar"
Wow! Reminds me of Rush, David Byrne, flamenco dancing, Fairport Convention, and a giant garden of flowers all at once. Os Mutantes, in their heyday, was one of the most inventive bands ever, and this new track matches up, at least upon first listen. So this is good news indeed.
You want some more good news? Os Mutantes are coming to Portland! That's right. September 2, Aladdin Theater. My calendar is so marked.
