Once again our friends over at Sounds & Colours come up with the goods:
As part of the research for our Sounds and Colours Brazil book/CD (due in Sept 2013) we have been speaking to all manner of cultural agitators, including Marcelo Costa of the indefatigable Scream & Yell blog, one of our trusted sources for finding out about the best new music, books and films coming out of Brazil.
For one of our articles Marcelo was kind enough to recommend us all these albums, from mainly São Paulo-based artists, which are currently available free to download. Below you’ll find a mixture of hip-hop (Criolo, Emicida), pop (Tulipa Ruiz), tropicália-esque rock/pop (Apanhador Só), singer/songwriter (Jair Naves) and all points in between. We recommend you at least download three of these albums. Think of it as a lucky dip, and be sure that whatever you get, you won’t be disappointed.
