Os Mutantes

A Minha Menina and Bat Macumba are probably the most popular tunes from Os Mutantes first album. First tune is a Gil Gilberto cover. Heavy fuzz guitars are leading percussions. And second, more "rock'n roll", was composed by Rita Lee and Tom Zé.

When I was first listen it, it was like I always been familiar with. Well maybe 'cause this sounds are familiar with Tarantino's soundtrack movies. It seems to sound like Beatles and Bossa Nova in one. In the late 60's Os Mutantes were friends with Tropicalia movement leaders like Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil and Rita Lee. Most of them classic works were recently reissued by Soul Jazz Records, Tropicalia: A Brazilian Revolution in Sound.
