Lindo Sonho Delirante Vol. 2: 100 Daring Records from Brazil (1976-1985)

By 06 December, 2018

This is the second volume in an extraordinary series cataloguing adventurous, psychedelic and experimental music from Brazil. Following on from Volume 1 which covered the late 60s and early 70s, this second instalment takes a look at Brazilian music as it moves away from psych and garage rock into even more ambitious material. There are experiments in north-eastern Brazilian music, the mixing of the avant-garde and comic books from Arrigo Barnabé, Tom Zé's finest albums, plenty of free jazz and samba jazz, pioneering musicians working with folk music, and so much more. The book contains articles on all 100 albums with full page album covers and texts in both English and Portuguese. It's truly a glorious thing.

Lindo Sonho Delirante: 100 Psychedelic Records From Brazil (1968-1975) chronicles the evolution of some of Brazil's most mind-bending music through a particularly fruitful era. Records included begin with 1968's Tropicalia Panis En Circensis, taking in Rita Lee, Tom Zé and Gilberto Gil to lesser known artists such as Lula Côrtes and Loyce & Os Gnomos along the way. The book proceeds chronologically, with detailed entries on records (in Portuguese and English) describing everything from pop heroes to tropicália pioneers to wild takes on progressive rock, and the cultural and political climate that produced them. We have imported this book especially from Brazil, as currently it has no worldwide distribution. More info at
