Os Mutantes - A Divina Comédia Ou Ando Meio Desligado (1970)
The third album from this band from Brazil.
The band is a trio with a lineup of theremin, autoharp, guitar, bass, keyboards, percussion and vocals.
Guest musicians helped out on drums, classical orchestra, percussion and vocals.
The band continued on from their two first albums with this album.
Psych rock is what we get here. Psych rock with strange vocals, humour and local tropical flavours.
There is a lot of vaudeville and party mood on this album with some wild and weird vocals. The female vocals are really good when the album gives us more serious music.
This album is psyched out and not too dissimilar with Gong's wildest moments. But with a local flavour.
The music is decent to good too... although totally unpredictable and wild.
This forty minutes long album is one of a kind, indeed.
Check it out.
