In the 60s, Brazil was being ruled by a military junta. Against that backdrop, a new artistic movement arose, with an emphasis on pulling in global influences. The musical branch of this movement, called Tropicalia, made its mark by blending Brazilian folk styles with Pop and Psychedelic styles from Europe and America. It was daring and controversial enough that artists (on this album) got into screaming arguments with concert crowds, and spent time in jail and in exile for being critical of the government.

This album was a collaboration between most of the leading musicians in the movement. Their goal was to create a manifesto; a statement of purpose for their movement. They all brought songs in, contributed to the other songs, and created what is now considered a classic of Brazilian music. You don’t need to understand the lyrics to appreciate the music, but it helps to know that they are frequently critical of the Brazilian culture and government as it was in 1968. Contributors include Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Os Mutantes, Tom Ze and Gal Costa

I checked, and it seems to be streaming on most of the big streaming services. If you can’t find it on yours, it is on YouTube, or I should be able to point you toward it if needed.

I hope you like it!
Great pick. Very different from what I usually listen to, in a very good way. The mix on this seems superb to me, there is a lot going on. Also, these musicians are quite obviously very talented. Very glad I got to experience and learn about this.

I’m so glad you liked it. I’ve enjoyed other stuff from Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso, but if you enjoyed this, I can’t recommend enough that you check out the first three Os Mutantes albums. They are just excellent.

Good pick! Not something I would necessarily seek out, but it was enjoyable and really cool to listen to something out of my usual rotation. Thanks for that!

Looking forward to sharing an album with y'all Saturday!

For my album pick, I'm going with Passing Stranger by Scott Matthews. Back in college, way before streaming services, I'd discover new music by changing my country location to the UK or Australia and then playing all of the previews of the top 100 songs until I found one I liked, then would grab the whole album. On one of my browsing sessions, I happened upon a song called "Elusive" by Scott Matthews, which led me to this album. I love this album so much and it's one of a few that I regularly go to and just let the whole thing spin.

A little about Scott Matthews/what to expect:
"Released in 2006, and somehow completely overlooked, Britain’s Scott Matthews’ debut album Passing Stranger is a strong start to a promising career. His music is a blend of folk, blues, and occasionally rock music that often draws comparisons to Jeff Buckley; comparisons that are fair, for the most part. While his voice is much closer to that of Chris Cornell, his music features strong melodies and some lush arrangements similar to those of Buckley. Where they mainly differ is that Buckley was a rock musician with folk influences, while Matthews is a folk musician with rock influences. So, while Matthews has a strong voice, he rarely flaunts it, keeping most of his songs from becoming boisterous and exuberant, and more similar to the music of Nick Drake." - [Only registered users can see links.]

I hope y'all enjoy it as much as I do!

Chris Cornell making music like Jeff Buckley and Nick Drake? I’m on board!

This sounds really cool, I'll add it to the list to play next. Pretty great method of finding new music back in the day, too.

That was a really good listen. It doesn't really drag, the dobro instrumentation is off the charts and I totally get the Jeff Buckley comparison. Nice pick.

glad you liked it.

For the Jeff Buckley comparison, there are a few songs that I feel could come straight off Grace, particularly "Dream Song" and "The Fool's Fooling Himself"

Oh man, I am sucker for tabla.

I love this album so far. Sorry I don't generally have super deep review thoughts. First jam into Dream Song to start the album is pretty fantastic.

Thanks for this pick!

Interesting album. A couple songs really grabbed me (City Headache and White Feathered Medicine). The very first song immediately reminded me of Chris Cornell, great voice.

One thing that seemed odd to me was the placement choices for the smaller more ambient tracks, particularly at the end. I think it could have been arranged a little bit better.

Overall good album, glad to have had the chance to listen. Good pick!

Definitely enjoyed this one. I absolutely get the Jeff Buckley comparisons. I loved how he draws from so many different musical sources but never sounds like he’s appropriating, pandering or even incongruous. American Folk and country, English folk, Eastern modal, Blues; they’re all there and all work together, which is an accomplishment in itself. The lyrics seem a little like he’s trying too hard to be poetic without having a lot to say at times, but I’ve never been a big lyrics guy anyway. I’m definitely going to check out some more of his stuff.

Hey Garntd, we need the name of the next album picker so they’re ready to go tomorrow.

I feel like at this point we can probably just start a rotation. Anybody who joins us can just be slotted into it.

Thememan hasn’t chosen yet so he should probably get a turn, then how about this rotation, based on the early picks:

Bluewater
Blumathu
Celluloid
Garntd
Thememan

Any objections?
