There's No Tropicalia In This Post

Modulo 1000 - Nao Fale Com Paredes

Most of the US focus on Brazilian music from the late '60's - early '70's has been on Tropicalia sounds. Cute, fuzzy, pop-psych stuff with a bit of a tropical lilt. This on the other hand..

This album is heavy as hell. Big organ and guitar sounds. Heavy 4/4 beats. Only the Portugese tips it off as being Brazilian.

It's also rare as hell. There have been a couple reissues over time, none that I can tell are legit. Mine is burned from a boot lp from probably the late-90's. The sound is not super - kind of bassy and muddy. There's even a part where I could swear there's a skip in the master. That's what you get when you master from a vinyl copy, I guess.

I wouldn't call this great all the way through, but it's a solid B+. Have fun with it.

I think I WOULD call this pretty great all the way through! Of course this is coming from a guy who is trying to form a Sir Lord Baltimore tribute band...
Great Blog you got here, sir. Hope some other folks download this post.
Dude! I want to be in a SLB tribute band! That kicks ass.

True story - the Seattle grunge scene was crazy about SLB. "Woman is a hellhound. And she gives me fever"
