First ANTI- signs the Field, now they nab Brazilian psych-prog legends Os Mutantes, proving it to be one of the most unpredictable and diverse labels extant. Mutantes plan to release Haih on Sept. 8, their first collection of new material since 1974's Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol.
Mutantes' Seattle show in 2006 was fantastic, against the odds of typical reunion gigs. It'll be very interesting to see if they can still capture that uniquely charming, exploratory spirit in their music after all these decades. Collabs with fellow TropicálistasJorge Ben and Tom Zé raise our expectatoins for this release.
Leader Sergio Dias observed:
Living the conception and birth of this album, as an individual, was the most intense experience, for it was as if time has ceased to exist, and I was bouncing from life to life, decades through decades, revisiting myself as a 16 year old boy playing guitar and feeling so free and, as any teenager, indestructible.
