V/A - Outro Tempo: Electronic and Contemporary Music From Brazil, 1978 - 1992
A compilation at its best. John Gómez curated this impeccably researched collection of Brazilian music you've likely never encountered before, the scope of which touches indigenous rhythms, alien synthesizers, catchy drum patterns and straight crooners, all while maintaining a cohesive flow. This was Music From Memory's first compilation, and we believe so far its best - boasting standout ear catchers like Andréa Daltro's haunting Kiuá alongside sing-alongs like Os Mulheres Negras' Só Quero Um Xodó... every chapter in this story is full of action, absolutely no filler in earshot. If you don't already have a copy, you won't regret having one handy for almost any social or private engagement.
