Paraphrasing the Soul Sonic Force and sorting through today`s releases for tunes that could have graced Alfie & Leo`s Amnesia dance floor. JMS have reissued Henri Texier`s first two LPs. Amir from 1976, and Varech from 1977. The cover of the latter will be familiar to anyone who`s visited the Growing Bin, since Basso has […]

[Music] Erlon Chaves – Procura​-​se Uma Virgem OST


Procura-se Uma Virgem turned out to be a very pleasant slab of easy/cheesy/sleazy listening from soundtrack composer Erlon Chaves, who should have been working in Europe, where is mellow style would have been perfect for directors like Jess Franco and Mario Bava.

[Music] Joyce Moreno – Visions Of Dawn

I can’t think of a Brazilian singer I adore more than Joyce Moreno, and that’s saying quite a bit considering the legendary talent that has come out of the country.

Still, she is in top form in this album working with percussionist Naná Vasconcelos and Mauricio Maestro on vocals.

Though recorded in 1976, this release, as great as it is, didn’t see a proper release until 2009.

[Music] Camarão – The imaginary Soundtrack to a Brazilian Western Movie

Analog Africa’s clutches are reaching out farther and wider with this release by Brazilian legend Camarão. It’s a reissue of work he did in around 1960 and is a lively mix of ethnic music, cha-cha, accordion music and something you would hear in a very hazy, psychedelic Spaghetti Western.

Expect this release to ship out starting on February 20, 2018. It’s been well worth the wait!

[Music] Oval – SE

Though Markus Popp’s Oval is best known for his glitchy compositions, he’s been branching into rather sublime, Brazilian-inflected pop music as well. Lovely stuff.

His back catalog is 50% for the time being over at Bandcamp as well. Now’s a good time to stock up on his work.

[Music] Moreno Veloso – Coisa Boa

It looks like Moreno Veloso is the chip off the old block, said block being the legendary Caetano.

[Music] Vitor Ramil – Milonga de dos Hermanos (lyrics by Jorge Luis Borges)

Brazilian singer Vitor Ramil is a new name to me.  His ouevre is amazing on its own, and I’ll be exploring it some time in the future, but what was most impressive was his setting of this poem by Jorge Luis Borges to music which matches the words wonderfully.

Some prime music by Ivan Lins, crooning away to the classic cut originally written by Antônio Carlos “Tom” Jobim.
