south america hasnt created anything legitimate musically since the 70s, and it looks, based on the way these slick dudes dress, they agree.

They played other places in America before this week.

This band is part of a current 70s Brazilian funk revival, inspired by Jorge Benjor, Mutantes and Tim Maia (among others). You either like their sound or you dont, there is no middle of the road in this case. I personally liked what I heard, though. But then again I used to live in Sao Paulo, and I understand where they are coming from.
