Brazilian Guitar Fuzz Bananas by Various

The title may look like it's been made using a random word generator but this is an essential release if you like the heavier side of the Tropicalia movement. It contains some of the best Brazilian psychedelic 7" records that money can buy or rather more accurately money couldn't buy as most only came out as promo only records. Settle down and discover the wondrous sounds alongside an informative 28 page booklet.

Hey friend, you wanna have some fun? World Psychedelic have got your back with this amazingly-titled comp! Featuring such household names as Celio Balona, 14 Bis, Ton & Sergio and Loyce E Os Gnomes this survey of the Brazilian psych scene from 1967 to 1976 is probably the most purely enjoyable record I've heard this week, endearing itself to you with tropicalia-flavoured takes on the classic psych sounds of the UK and US (in both mainstream and garage varieties), as well as more definitively South American styles given a slight twist. It's undoubtedly not as consistent as the label's excellent Psych-Funk 101 but it's still a pretty cracking listen. And read, with the massive info-packed booklet! And watch, with the documentary on the enhanced CD!

Flipping brilliant, this is how to do a comp. Huge booklet included with the vinyl version with lovely notes, pictures providing an immersive experience that compliments the music well. There is a real variety of tunes here, modish rock, funk, tropicalia, psyche and more. Difficult to pick highlights when the whole package us as strong as this, but for me Fabio's Lindo Sonho Delirante (L.S.D. geddit?) is great, The Youngsters rock out nicely, and The Pops, 14 Bis and Mac Rybell are all lovely tunes.

As with the previous comp in the series Psych Funk 101 you wont find much that is obvious here, but that shouldn't put you off. Clearly a lot of work has gone into this, so you can buy with confidence. Certainly fans of Finders Keepers, or Os Mutantes could do worse than spend their hard earned on this.
