Boogarins – ‘Lucifernandis’

Thanks to Os Mutantes alone, Brazil can boast a rich heritage of psychedelic-rock bands. Boogarins look to continue this fine lineage. Taken from their forthcoming debut album As Plantas Que Curam, which will be released on 1 October 2013 by Other Music Recording Co., ‘Lucifernandis’ is full of fuzzy guitars, yearning melodies and that all important woozy, 60s vibe. There is nothing wrong with basing your sound on the timeless triumphs of others, just as long as you do it well. Boogarins leap that particular hurdle with admirable ease and all without breaking their cool.
