Os Mutantes Announce New Tour Dates

Legendary psychedelic and Tropicalia band Os Mutantes have announced a North American tour co headlining with lo-fi pop wunderkind Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti. Brazilians Os Mutantes have long been regarded as one of the most influential and innovative bands in pop history, revered by a host of musical luminaries including Beck, Devendra Banhart, David Byrne, Of Montréal, The Flaming Lips and the late Kurt Cobain. Last year Os Mutantes released Haih or Amortecedor their first album in fifteen years to unanimous critical acclaim. Mojo heralded the record as "A joyful triumph" while The New Yorker said of the record "a superb, politically tinged reunion effort....their new songs remain as bold and fascinating as their old ones."

The band's previous tour in support of the album proved equally as inspiring with Creative Loafing saying of a recent live show: "Even the new songs, which are strong and fuzzed out like an amalgam of their best essences, possessed a vibrancy that fit with the band's second (1969's Mutantes) and third (1970's A Divina Comédia ou Ando Meio Desligado) releases, like some unearthed collection of unknown B-sides off of Sgt. Pepper. They were delivered with more spunk and screams and howls and dense guitars haunted by buzzsaws than on the new album, Haih Or Amortecedor, sounding as if some components had been purposely left out on the initial recording, like the songs could only be fully realized when performed live."

Os Mutantes will also be appearing at the 2020 Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas on Saturday November 6th along with Man Man, The Dirty Projectors, MGMT and many more. For more info go to: http://funfunfunfest.com
