iTunes Editors’ Notes

Os Mutantes, stars of Brazil's late-'60s Tropicalia movement of pop-rock and art, found a second life as hipster favorites in '90s America. Compiled and released by David Byrne's Luaka Bop label, Everything is Possible! makes a fabulous case for the group's importance and sheer fun factor. (It also draws its highlights from several hard-to-find albums.) Over 14 tracks, the set ranges from psychedelia to frenetic booty-shaking Latin rock that would make Carlos Santana green with envy. There are also two versions of Caetano Veloso's anthem "Baby" - one a tender folk-samba stroll, the other an organ-drenched blues-rock freakout. A major influence on the likes of Beck, Os Mutantes are certain to light up the brain of anyone who spends an hour with them.

Customer Reviews

Well Assembled Collection, a Ton of Fun.

Often overlooked, Os Mutantes' music is a blast to listen to, be it mellow or manic. This collection has most of Os Mutantes' best work, ("A Minha Menina" "Bat Macumba" "Baby (1971)" "Cantor de Mambo") and some other well picked cuts ("Panis Et Circenses" "El Justiciero"). The collection shows Os Mutantes' ability to shift from genre to genre while maintaining a whimsical overtone. Their music is a testament to their influence on modern rockers, as they put together well-constructed and fun music. This collection is missing, however, some of Os Mutantes' other greats ("Top Top" "Jardim Elétrico"). Hopefully, iTunes will fill in the gaps left by this compilation.

super good album!

I love this stuff. They try it all and succeed every time, this music breaks all the barriers and is still Brazilian as hell. Britpop euroinvasion look out, this stuff is going to top the charts. I like Animals, Roxy Music, David Bowie, Geto Boys, Slayer, and Minor Threat. And this stuff makes me far happier. Happy music for ugly losers. Jesus hates me and satan adores me and I could care less because I got this album.

Great time and place for music

Os Mutantes were excellent in many respects. It's hard to understand the full siginificance of the music of this period if you don't speak Portugese or know how crazy and censored the political climate was in Brasil then. Many artists in the Tropicalismo movement were imprisoned or exiled because of their songs, which were considered revolutionary propaganda by the government. To the Brasilian people the songs of many of the Tropicalismo artists are regarded as high literary art. If you like this also check out Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Tom Ze, and Antonio Carlos Jobim (who was not tropicalismo but invented bossa nova).

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '00s, '10s

Though rarely heard outside their Brazilian homeland (especially during the first phase of their career), Os Mutantes were one of the most dynamic, talented, radical bands of the psychedelic era — quite an accomplishment during a period in which most rock bands spent quality time exploring the outer limits of pop music. A trio of brash musical experimentalists, the group fiddled with distortion,...
