Guitar Days – An Unlikely Story of Brazilian Music

There are some interesting compilations turning up on Bandcamp of late. Guitar Days – An Unlikely Story of Brazilian Music is the soundtrack to the documentary of the same name which tells the story, coinciding with Brazil’s transition to democracy, that a new wave of bands emerged who looked to the US, UK and Australia for inspiration and who chose to sing in English rather than Portuguese.

Aside from The Pin Ups and The Cigarettes these bands are new to me. I enjoyed the racket made by Garage Fuzz and New Ground by Valv. Musically most of it’s not my bag as much of it errs on the side of indie rock and grunge but as a story it makes fascinating listening.

Guitar Days – An Unlikely Story of Brazilian Music is out now on London based Brazilian label Midsummer Madness on a pay what you want basis. The label also provides a comprehensive write up about the compilation. (English translation via Bing)
