For their first multi-artist compilation, Music From Memory take us on a trip to the heart of the Amazon rainforest. Outro Tempo: Electronic and Contemporary Music From Brazil, 1978-1992 is a double LP that explores the outer reaches of Brazilian music, where indigenous rhythms mix with synthesizers and where MPB mingles with drum computers. As Brazil faced the last years of its military dictatorship and transition to democracy, a generation of forward-thinking musicians developed an alternative vision of Brazilian music and culture. They embraced traditionally shunned electronic production methods and infused their music with elements of ambient, jazz-fusion, and minimalism. At the same time they referenced the musical forms and spirituality of indigenous tribes from the Amazon. The music they produced was a complex and mesmerising tapestry that vividly evoked Brazilian landscapes and simultaneously reached out to the world beyond its borders.The product of extensive research, this compilation is a unique introduction to this visionary music and features many fresh discoveries in a country well trodden by record diggers. It gathers tracks from obscure albums that have for too long been neglected by even the most avid collectors of Brazilian music. It includes now highly sought after music by Andréa Daltro, Maria Rita, and Fernando Falcão, as well as unknown gems like those of Cinema, Carlinhos Santos, and Anno Luz. This is an essential release that reveals a broader spectrum of Brazilian music, striking a unique sonic signature that is full of innovation, experimentation, and beauty.Compiled by John Gómez and featuring extensive liner notes, Outro Tempo showcases this overlooked corner in Brazil’s rich music history for the first time.

Only 1 per customer!Invisible City Editions is proud to officially re-release the sublime extended 12” version of “Praise Jah” with soaring vocals and wild electronics. BIG TIP!.Oluko Imo was a Trinidadian born multi-instrumentalist, founder of the legendary spiritual afro jazz groups Mansa Musa and the Black Truth Rhythm Band. He moved to New York City in the 80s and divided his time between teaching music there and touring Africa with Fela Kuti as both his manager and part of the band. Praise Jah is Imo’s crowning achievement. An elevated electronic mantra that perfectly fuses synthy soca disco with his spiritual afro-Trinidadian leanings. It’s a timeless piece of music that sounds as visionary today as it did when it emerged from the aether back in 1979.Limited pressing with embossed sleeve, designed by Zeitype.

Release:1972 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
For a very long time, we have been trying to re-issue this record; a true and complete album masterpiece in every sense of the word, considered by many people to be one of the greatest ever made, regardless of genre. Recorded at Studio Somil, Rio De Janeiro in 1972, the album was produced, arranged, directed by the self-taught, Arthur Verocai. Previously he had worked on many records in various capacities, with artists including Jorge Ben, Ivan Lins and Celia, but this album gave him the chance to do his thing in it’s most pure form. The 29 minute masterpiece, perfect in it’s arrangement and fusion of sonics, epitomises the sound of Brazil at the time; strings, guitars, pianos, break beats, bass lines, synthesizers, vocals from the wonderful Célia, Carlos Dafe and Oberdan (Banda Black Rio), plus percussion from Pedro Santos and Paulo Moura on sax. Bossa nova, samba, jazz, MPB, psychedelics and funk sit side by side effortlessly. The album transcends the genre of Brazilian music, and infact all genres. Highlighted in part by the number of artists that have sampled from it; MF Doom, Ludacris & Common, Little Brother, Jneiro Jarel aka Dr Who Dat?, Dibiase and Action Bronson amongst others. The original Continental version of the album now fetch around $2000. Our definitive re-issue is an exact replica of the gatefold original LP and the source master is taken from the Continental tapes, re-mastered in 2012 under Arthur’s supervision.

Krishnanda is an album in the truest sense of the word – a spiritual, psychedelic Brazilian masterpiece from start to finish – celebrated by everyone from Seu Jorge and Kassin to Floating Points, Madlib and DJ Nuts. These days, originals change hands for thousands of dollars.Pedro dos Santos, born in Rio in 1919, was a percussionist virtuoso, composer and inventor of instruments that apparently included oddities such as the ‘Tamba’ (electrified bamboo drum) and the mouth berimbau whistle. Nicknamed Perdo ‘Sorongo’ after the rhythm he invented, that features throughout ‘Krishnanda’. A highly spiritual man who was regarded as a philosopher by many.He worked with greats including Baden Powell, Elis Regina, Maria Bethany, Elza Soares, Sebastião Tapajós, Roberto Ribeiro, Milton Nascimento, Clara Nunes, Paul Simon and Arthur Verocai, playing on his legendary self-titled LP. In the same vein as Verocai and his self-titled LP, ‘Krishnanda’ was Pedro’s chance to shine with his own, and only, solo recording.Krishnanda was produced by Hélcio Milito, the drummer of Tamba Trio, and arranged by conductor Joppa Lins, and originally released in 1968 on CBS (Brasil). Musically, the album touches folk, samba, afro-brazilian and psychedelia plus added effects, with a lyrical depth and diversity to match; themes including morality, perception, existence and ego.Despite the genius of the record and the influence that it had on musicians at the time of release, it disappeared into obscurity. We first discovered the record around 2003, through a friend Julio Dui. Around that time Brazilian funk and bossa was the flavour of the day, so didn’t catch our ear immediately, however it continued improve with age and now we consider it to be one of the best albums ever made, regardless of genre or origin.The Mr Bongo reissue is produced as a replica original LP / audio master by Ricardo Garcier at Magic Master (Rio de Janeiro) / artwork restored by Andrew Edwards, from the original copy borrowed from Julio Dui – thank you, sir!

Erasmo Carlos E Os Tremendões
LP | 1970 | US | Reissue (Light In The Attic)
22,99 €*
Release:1970 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Erasmo Carlos has no counterpart in the universe of Anglophone pop music that could begin to hint at his relevance, popularity and his complex relationship with the only Brazilian pop star more universally recognized than himself, Roberto Carlos. He may be a beloved pop star and household name in Brazil, but hardly because of the music found on the three albums reissued by Light In The Attic. While in retrospect they can be appreciated as some of his most creative, consistent and personal albums, they were also some of the least commercially successful and underappreciated of his long career, at least until recently. Embracing the artistic freedom of the global counterculture of the late sixties and early seventies, over the course of these three albums, Erasmo evolved from his bubblegum beginnings into a sophisticated seventies singer-songwriter. Erasmo Carlos’ “E Os Tremendões” (1970), “Carlos, Erasmo” (1971) and “Sonhos E Memórias 1941-1972” (1972) collectively find this maturing teeny-bopper delivering a mix of world class psychedelic Rock, traditional Rock ‘N’ Roll, Soul, Funk, Folk, Bossa Nova, and Samba-Rock to an unsuspecting Brazilian audience. Collectively, the songs on Erasmo Carlos E Tremendões sound like an attempt to appeal to nearly every relevant genre of Brazilian popular music at the turn of the decade. You’ll find a wide spectrum, ranging from clssic Brazilian cover tunes (“Saudosismo”, “Teletema”, “Aquarela Do Brasil”) and Soul ballads (“Menina”) to Funk (“Jeep”). Maybe it was exactly that, a chance for Erasmo to stretch his creative muscles in a lot of different directions as it became clear his Jovem Guarda character and sound had run its course, along with the TV show of the same name. Erasmo Carlos E Os Tremendões is greater than the sum of its pop-rock spitballs. It’s a creative, and at times experimental and groundbreaking album that remains a thrilling listen. Finally, this great album is made available on vinyl outside of Brazil for the first time ever. All material got newly remastered from the original master tapes. The LP is housed in a deluxe gatefold Stoughton tip-on jacket and comes with liner notes by Allen Thayer with lyrics (Portuguese/English).

Strangelove Music is delighted to present its first project, two songs from Lena d'Água, one of Portugal’s great musical acts of the early 1980’s.From the ashes of art pop band Salada de Frutas, Lena rose as the first prominent female bandleader in Portugal. Combining a siren presence and soaring vocals alongside songwriter Luis Fonseca and backing band Atlântida, they released a series of records that wove through the avante-pop sensibilities of the time.Collected here are two of their more leftfield moments; ‘Jardim Zoológico’ compresses a beguiling mix of new wave, post punk and dub into a short sharp pop format, impossible to properly categorize, the dynamic composition sounding as fresh now as it did 35 years ago.On the flipside, the calmer ‘Tao’ takes Fonseca’s keyboards towards more eastern territory, conjuring up a dreamy synthesized new age vibe. Lena’s beautiful fado hued notes hang poignantly across both songs.Beautifully re-mastered by reissue specialist Peter Beckmann!

As a student and fan of Elvis, Little Richard, Bill Haley, and Chuck Berry, Erasmo indulged his primal Rock urges on these albums, notably getting sufficiently psychedelic and fuzzy on “Carlos, ERASMO” . Arriving in 1971 while Caetano and Gil were still in exile, Rita Lee had recently quit Os Mutantes and Gal Costa was onto a new sound, Erasmo’s 1971 album was the closest thing to Tropicália around. “Carlos, ERASMO” was co-produced by the Tropicália producer, Manoel Barenbein, including a new composition from Caetano, a few arrangements courtesy of Rogério Duprat and the musical talents of no fewer than three Mutants: lead guitarist Sergio Dias, drummer Dinho Leme and bassist Liminha, not to mention Brazil’s undisputed psychedelic axe-master, Alexander Gordin, aka “Lanny”, “Carlos, ERASMO” is a virtual all-star team of Tropícalistas (not in exile). This album is considered a bedrock album within the Brazilian rock scene and a notable late entry in the Tropicália tradition, rocking harder than any album in his catalog, but also including wispy love songs, soul and funk moves, brassy pop tunes and a marimba-driven ode to marijuana. Finally, this great album is made available on vinyl outside of Brazil for the first time ever. All material got newly remastered from the original master tapes. The LP is housed in a deluxe gatefold Stoughton tip-on jacket and comes with liner notes by Allen Thayer with lyrics (Portuguese/English).

When Greg Caz and Deano Sounds teamed up to create The Brasileiro Treasure Box Of Funk & Soul they created a collection of vintage Brazilian music that stretches across the scope of funk, soul, and psychedelic. Co-compiler and Brazilian music aficionado, Greg Caz says: “Without necessarily having a central theme other than funky nuggets from the first half of the 70s, we believe this compilation displays its own particular sense of logic, and that these songs ultimately all sound fantastic together. Regardless of one’s familiarity, or lack thereof, with artists like Antonio Carlos & Jocafi, Os Incríveis, Toni Tornado or Celia, the material on these 45s speaks its own truth and justifies their inclusion here. Many of these were originally available as singles, while others were taken from albums, but all are guaranteed to find their way into many DJ boxes and playlists.” The stunning 45s from this set will now be available for individual sale. The series continues with Tom Zé’s unstoppable riff on “Jimmy, Renda-Se” with Eduardo Araujo sounding a bit like a Brazilian Tom Jones on the B-side, “Kizumbau.” Also available this time out, the funked up deep groove “A Hora E Essa” from Celia with Franco’s jazzy funk cut “El, Voce, Psui!” on the flip.

This album is another chapter in the ongoing "there's-muchmore-to-Brazil-than-bossa-nova" saga. It's filled with disco-era tracks produced for the Brazilian domestic marketplace, some of which were hits, others which were quite obscure. What binds them all together - besides their common origins, time period andoverall musical approach - is the fact that their reputation has been steadily transcending Brazil's borders. This has allowed these tunes to find their place on set lists, want lists and in the crates ofthe world's most discerning DJs and tastemakers.Artists like Jorge Ben and Marcos Valle have been legendary and influential for decades, and the duo Robson Jorge & Lincoln Olivetti dominated the Rio studio scene in the '80s before creating huge buzz overseas in recent years. Banda Black Rio and Cassiano are also both household names amongst crate diggers and fans ofrare groove.While this album is sure to highlight the work of the artists featured on it, its main aim is to shine a spotlight on a sound and a style that continues to hypnotize scores of music lovers. Most importantly, its goal is to get dance floors moving across the world.

Genre:Organic Grooves
This record has a slightly damaged sleeve (bent corners).Folkloric Brasilian/Afro-Brasilian music taken into the future. Featuring Airto Moreira. “Dança dos Tempos” is the debut album from thrilling, young Brazilian guitarist Fabiano do Nascimento, and it features legendary percussionist Airto Moreira in his first album project in over ten years. “Dança dos Tempos” follows folkloric Brazilian music as experienced through the mind and able fingers of an expansive musician, not yet thirty years old, and combines the heady ‘60s and ‘70s experimentalism of Hermeto Pascoal and Baden Powell with the childlike elegance of music played and passed down by native Brazilians for generations. It is the second Brazilian album released on Now-Again, following Seu Jorge and Almaz. Moreira, the bandleader, songwriter and producer who recorded a bevy of titles under his own name, with his wife Flora Purim, and whose resume contains the names of - seriously – every musician worth mentioning from America or Brazil from the past 50 years - plays percussion on the album and is joined by do Nascimento's long time drummer, Ricardo "Tiki" Pasillas on trap drums. Do Nascimento and Kana Shimanuki handle vocals on what is otherwise an airy instrumental album that allows the guitarist's virtuosity to shine through originals, folkloric Brazilian songs, and select covers by the likes of Pascoal and Powell, both formative influences on the guitarist. These duets show the camaraderie that two master Brazilian musicians - of two different generations, but of the same spirit - share with comrades of ages past as they imagine music for the years to come. These tracks were recorded live in the studio with no overdubs, straight to 2” analog-tape, and only sparingly mastered to focus on the subtleties of the performances.

Tempo dos Mestres (Time of the Masters) is the second album from the tireless, young Brazilian guitarist Fabiano Do Nascimento.It finds its roots in the depths of the Amazon rainforest, passed down through generations of Native Brazilians, and is imbibed bythe Afro-Brazilian culture that arose after Portuguese colonization. This blend is not new in Brazil, and is represented musically bygreat Brazilian musicians both known and celebrated - the guitarist Baden Powell and catalyst Hermeto Pascoal, both directinfluences on Do Nascimento - and less exposed, like the experimentalist Carioca, one of Do Nascimento’s mentors, and theBrazilian psychedelic pioneer Lula Cortes, whose album Paebiru rewrote Brazilian rock’s history in 1975.It is the third Brazilian album released on Now-Again, following Seu Jorge and Almaz and Do Nascimento’s debut Dança dosTempos. Do Nascimento's is joined on Tempo dos Mestres by his long time percussionist, Ricardo "Tiki" Pasillas on trap drumsand percussion, and Sam Gendel on saxophone and flute. Vocals are performed by Thalma de Freitas and Carla Hasset.These tracks were recorded live in the studio with no overdubs, straight to 2” analog-tape, and only sparingly mastered to focuson the subtleties of the performances. Do Nascimento’s fans include legendary percussionist Airto Moreira, who recorded Dançados Tempos and can be found playing live with Do Nascimento. "He’s Brazilian but (his mind is) from a place in Brazil that is notcommon.” Moreira states. “Fortunately, we still have some musicians who like to play music and who like to touch the instrumentand who like that energy!”Do Nascimento takes his music, and his place in Brazil’s lineage, seriously, and he often travels the vast country, spending time inthe rainforest, living life as it was lived in the distant past, while studying with still living masters as he searches for new directionsof the path trod by the geniuses whose influence abounds in contemporary music, but whose names are still unfamiliar.“Being a musician - feeling, studying, experiencing, living music -this comes first, right?” Do Nascimento questions. “ Second,we hope that the depths of knowledge in the music from the masters before us can be shared more, each time, to the youngergenerations coming.” In Tempo dos Mestres Do Nascimento answers himself with a beautiful entry into the evolving language oftimeless Brazilian music.

Head an hour east of Los Angeles and you'll find yourself in the Inland Empire of San Bernardino / Riverside, where a thriving Latinx DIY music and art scene is on display to a melting pot community and audience. It is out of this grassroots local scene that QUITAPENAS developed their unique rhythm and following. At the heart of the group is a tropical Afro-Latin combo, brewed under the warm California sun with a certain liberation in their sound as summed up in the meaning of their name: QUITA (remove) PENAS (worries). With this carefree openness the crew has honed a distinct and hypnotic take on the influential guitarra / tambora roots of golden-age soukous, chicha, compa and champeta.Following up their well received, self-released debut, QUITAPENAS has teamed up with Brooklyn-based label Names You Can Trust to release a pair of original songs. These tracks not only explore and capture the musical roots of their expansive Afro-Latin history, but offer a lyrical view of a decidedly present-day landscape from the perspective of America's vast multi-cultural immigrant experience. YA VERAN (You'll See) is an inclusive call to see the inherent beauty of our various shapes, sizes and colors, while LA BESTIA (The Beast), warns of the perilous form of travel in which people board on top of a series of trains through Central America and Mexico in order to reach the United States.

"When Greg Caz and Deano Sounds teamed up to create The Brasileiro Treasure Box Of Funk & Soul they created a collection of vintage Brazilian music that stretches across the scope of funk, soul, and psychedelic. Co-compiler and Brazilian music aficionado, Greg Caz says: “Without necessarily having a central theme other than funky nuggets from the first half of the 70s, we believe this compilation displays its own particular sense of logic, and that these songs ultimately all sound fantastic together. Regardless of one’s familiarity, or lack thereof, with artists like Antonio Carlos & Jocafi, Os Incríveis, Toni Tornado or Celia, the material on these 45s speaks its own truth and justifies their inclusion here. Many of these were originally available as singles, while others were taken from albums, but all are guaranteed to find their way into many DJ boxes and playlists.”

Here we are with another two tasters from the forthcoming Black Feeling album (a project from The Bamboos and friends). Once again its all about taking it back to the source – to the music that has inspired, instigated and accompanied many a musical journey over the years. Following a sell out gig at the Jazz Café last year, band leader Lance rounded up a bunch of fellow minded musicians from the Aussie funk scene to collaborate on a covers album. Consisting of members of The Bamboos, Cookin On 3 Burners and many more guest musicians, the tracks are presented under pseudonyms to give the impression of an album you would find whilst digging in a Caribbean record shop or American thrift strore. This time The Mighty Show Stoppers swing by with their highly charged cover of Dave Cortez and the Moon People's "Hippy Skippy Moon Strut". Whilst being a dancefloor favourite at the more discerning clubs around the world, the track is perhaps better known as the sample source for Christine Aguilera's "Ain't No Other Man" smash of last year. Just check out those horns! Over on the flip, Esperanto serve up a heavy version of the Al Foster Band's "Night Of The Wolf" - a rare 45 if ever there was! Toughening up the drums and arrangements, the band deliver a respectful update to this classic tune.

Erasmo Carlos has no counterpart in the universe of Anglophone pop music that could begin to hint at his relevance, popularity and his complex relationship with the only Brazilian pop star more universally recognized than himself, Roberto Carlos. He may be a beloved pop star and household name in Brazil, but hardly because of the music found on the three albums reissued by Light In The Attic. While in retrospect they can be appreciated as some of his most creative, consistent and personal albums, they were also some of the least commercially successful and underappreciated of his long career, at least until recently. Embracing the artistic freedom of the global counterculture of the late sixties and early seventies, over the course of these three albums, Erasmo evolved from his bubblegum beginnings into a sophisticated seventies singer-songwriter. Erasmo Carlos’ “E Os Tremendões” (1970), “Carlos, Erasmo” (1971) and “Sonhos E Memórias 1941-1972” (1972) collectively find this maturing teeny-bopper delivering a mix of world class psychedelic Rock, traditional Rock ‘N’ Roll, Soul, Funk, Folk, Bossa Nova, and Samba-Rock to an unsuspecting Brazilian audience. “Sonhos E Memórias 1941-1972” is truly singular within Brazilian pop fusing rock, soul, jazz and singer-songwriter styles. It’s simultaneously rootsy, funky, modern and nostalgic. The lyrics are highly personal, searching for deeper meaning with lots of flower power imagery and language, while the music is tight, highly rhythmic, melodic and restrained in its delivery and effortless groove. Built around the future fusion trio Azymuth with keyboardist José Roberto Bertrami, drummer Ivan Conti aka “Mamão” and bassist Alex Malheiros, a majority of the album’s tunes make excellent use of this trio’s telepathic tightness, subtle funkiness, and melodic mastery. The album dabbles with a few different styles and rhythms, all telling Erasmo’s musical story be it Bossa Nova, Roots Rock, Hard Rock, ballads, and soulful grooves, but a certain sonic frequency or tempo alongside the autobiographical elements unite this masterwork. Finally, this great album is made available on vinyl outside of Brazil for the first time ever. All material got newly remastered from the original master tapes. The LP is housed in a deluxe gatefold Stoughton tip-on jacket and comes with liner notes by Allen Thayer with lyrics (Portuguese/English).

Ondatrópica brings together an all-star cast representing both the classic and modern styles of la musica Colombiana and features legendary figures (Fruko, Anibal Velasquez, Wilson Viveros, Michi Sarmiento to name a few) from Colombia’s rich musical past alongside younger Colombian musicians including members of both Mario’s band Frente Cumbeiro and Quantic’s Combo Barbaro as well as some specially invited guests.'Punkero Sonidero' is a raw, instrumental tune and with its analog synth bass and four-to-the-floor feel is the band's salute to the cumbia diaspora worldwide. It was one of the first tracks that the group recorded after they entered the famous Discos Fuentes studios in Medellín and so it seems fitting that it should be the first track to get cut to vinyl.'I Ron Man' is on the flip-side, a drunken take on Black Sabbath's classic 'Iron Man' with a tongue-in-cheek title - 'Ron' being 'Rum' in Spanish. The track features Michi Sarmiento, the big-hitting saxophonist of the golden age of Colombian music who, along with Will 'Quantic’ Holland and Mario Galeano, takes a toast of rum (ron) and whisky to celebrate the world’s common interest of inebriation.

Taggy Matcher (aka Bruno “Patchworks” Hovart) is back with another musical trip, always knocking where you don’t expect him to. For this new single, the French Reggae producer has teamed up with the uprising Cumbia combo, Kumbia Boruka, for a scorching track inspired by Dillinger’s legendary Reggae single, “Cocaine in My Brain”. Kumbia Boruka is a band led by Hernan Cortes, a percussionist and singer born in Monterrey, capital of the Cumbia music. After playing and touring with some of the biggest Cumbia’s artists, such as Celso Pina, he founded the six piece combo few years ago in Lyon and is currently touring and presenting their first EP, La Vida se Vive. As a major figure of the music scene in Lyon, Bruno “Patchworks” Hovart was immediately seduced by Hernan voice and style. It ended in this perfect collaboration and meeting, between Jamaican vibes and Mexican melodies, now presented by Stix Records on a vinyl 7inch.

Gatefold single LP including replica 8-page, full size booklet.'Acabou Chorare' is the second album from 'Novos Baianos', or 'New Bahians', who formed in Bahia, Brazil in the 1960's. They are considered to be one of the most important and revolutionary groups in Brazilian music.'Acabou Chorare' - translated as 'Stop Crying' - was originally released in 1972 by Som Livre after the success of their first LP 'É Ferro na Boneca’ in 1970. It is considered to be one of the most important and influential albums of all time, charting at number one in a Rolling Stone Brazil's 'Top 100 Brazilian Albums Ever' chart. 'Preta, Pretinha’ placed 20th in the same publications list of the greatest Brazilian songs of all time. Upon release, 'Acabou Chorare' stayed near the top on the album charts for more than thirty weeks, and received huge radio support across the country. It also became very popular in Europe shortly afterwards.The unique sound of this record is a result of the fusion of samba, MPB, rock 'n' roll and bossa nova, and strong influences from Joao Gilberto, who frequently played with the group, and bossa nova legend Gilberto Gil.The album was written by Moraes Moreira, Luiz Galvão, Jorginho Gomes, Assis Valente, Pepeu Gomes and Paulinho Boca de Cantor. After recording, the group moved to a communal house outside Rio, where Galvão apparently shot video footage of the group on his Super-8 video recorder, some of which is featured in this documentary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6J0bg9MdMo. Baby Consuelo was a member of the group - she went on to have a very successful solo career.
