Os Mutantes soundchecking at Austin Psych Fest 2013 (more by Tim Griffin)
Os Mutantes

Brazilian psychedelic pop legends Os Mutantes are still at it (they played Le Poisson Rouge in December and were just at Austin Psych Fest, but were interrupted by rain), and are one of the bands announced for the Celebrate Brooklyn! 2013 season at Prospect Park. Their show happens on June 29 with Brooklyn indie pop band Javelin and Sierra Leonean Bubu King Janka Nabay, and that one's totally free.

The show is one of a few Northeast US dates the Brazilian band will be playing this June, including another in the NYC area happening on June 28 at Maxwell's. Tickets for the Maxwell's show are on sale now.

All dates are listed, along with a video of the band at Le Poisson Rouge, below...

1 out 3 original members - it ain't the real thing

This was one of the favorite bands of Kurt Cobain

Love those old records, but this ain't Os Mutantes. Just saw them at Austin Psych Fest, and they were terrible.

At the end of 2012, Mutantes played a one off show in Brazil with their 1974-1975 line-up, playing in the entirety the 1974 album Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol. You can find some this presentation on YouTube. People were going nuts watching that line-up playing together again. Not the original Mutantes? It hasn't been the original line-up since 1972, but the musical mind set of the band has always been very much Mutantes. Besides, the very name of the band implicates the tendency for mutations.
I saw them recently in Brooklyn and this new line-up does take some getting used to. I did like the new keyboard player, but am very iffy regarding the new drummer. The new album sounds promising, although I haven't heard anything other than the four songs they played live.
