Review: Os Mutantes "Fool Metal Jack"
Mon, 1 Jul 2013

If you know Brazilian psych-rock, then you know Os Mutantes. In 2006, ever-youthful frontman Sergio Dias restocked the group after a long-overdue reunion; Fool Metal Jack is their second studio outing since then (their first in English), and it packs a political punch. Vinícius Junqueira brings a raw-fingered but melodic touch to the bass on the bittersweet ballad “The Dream Is Gone”—a sensitive feel that he counteracts brilliantly on the extreme drop-tuned title track, which treads heavy and hard with lurid visions of war.
