Os Mutantes to release first album in 35 years on September 8th!

Called "Haih". I'm a huge fan of the Mutants. Their album, "Live at the Barbican Theater" is on heavy rotation in my car, and has been for months. Barbican is a live recording of a performance on their 2006 tour; I also saw them live on the same tour here in Seattle. Quite amazing. I believe that the guitarist Sergio Dias was trying to out-Hendrix Hendrix, since Jimi Hendrix grew up here, and he succeeded. Proof that being able to play jazz guitar based bossa nova, even if you're playing psychedelic music, can come in handy. Search the archives of this site for the original posts about the performance.
