"Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol" by Os Mutantes (1974)
Os Mutantes "Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol"  1974 (Brazil)
The most legendary psychedelic Brazilian band of the sixties had a brief "proggy synthesizer" period in the mid-1970's. At this point the only original member of the group remaining was lead guitarist Sergio Dias, who was also the last member participating in their 2000's era reunion. The mid-70's prog version of the band also released an EP in 1976 (Cavalieros Negros) which is appended to the CD reissue of the album. Though arguably not as groundbreaking as their 1960's albums which were the ultimate blend of Tropicalia and psychedelia, this classic album stands up when compared to a lot of the Anglo-American synth-driven prog rock of the era.
Meanwhile, over in Japan: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu has a brand new song and video on the theme of isolation and social media (featuring her in drag as a sad bearded hipster and also as a "Sim"). We also featured a hot Perfume track on the show this week - they have been one of the most popular groups in Japan for more than a decade, and just brought their high-tech electro pop tour to North American ending with a stop at Coachella - here's "Edge" live in the USA in 2019. And I've also got a cool new Japanese band to introduce you to (featuring another classic "weird girl" named Margaret Hiroi) - expect to hear the punky psych/prog band 88Kasyo Junrei ("88-point Pilgrimage") on the show in the future!
