The Existential Adventures of Tim Maia
Narrated by Devendra Banhart

Tim Maia was the man. A soul superstar with outsize talents and appetites, he revolutionized popular music in his native Brazil in the 1970s. He also married five times, served multiple prison sentences, and at the height of his fame, joined a UFO-obsessed religious cult. –Luaka Bop

“Nobody Can Live Forever: The Existential Soul of Tim Maia,” a fifteen track survey of Maia’s 1970s recordings, completely remastered, has been available on Luaka Bop‘s “World Psychedelic Classics series.”

Garotas Suecas – Bugalu (via NYRM)

Garotas Suecas (Swedish Girls in Portuguese) come raging from Sao Paolo, Brazil – five boys and a girl playing fuzzed-out, psychedelic garage rock nu-Tropicalia. Influences range from Otis Redding to Os Mutantes. Imagine ? and the Mysterians jamming it out with Gilberto Gil, and you might have an idea how fun this band can be.  New Garotas Suecas ‘Codinome Dinamite b/w Ghostwriter’ 7″ is available now on American Dust (Moore Brothers).

“Garotas Suecas shouldn’t merely be listened to or witnessed; they should be absorbed.”
