[PSYCH ROCK LIKE A BOSSA NOVA] The slightly mad scientists of Brazil’s Os Mutantes have straddled cultures, politics and genres since helping define 1960s tropicalia, counting everyone from Beck to David Byrne and Kurt Cobain among their fans. After emerging from a 20-year hiatus, the band tweaked its lineup—only original Mutante Sergio Dias remains—and put out latest release, Fool Metal Jacket, which is a largely English-language affair, a departure from 2009 reunion record Haih or Amortecedor and prior Portuguese-heavy efforts. What hasn’t changed: the mix of North and South American, psychedelic, samba and general screwball textures and tales of revolutionary angst tempered with pre-YOLO-era celebration. Don’t let the lovely, quieter moments “Fool” you here—the Kubrick-checking title track is a classic call to disarms complete with fuzzed-out prog-rock guitars and the coughing “no more war” refrain of its wounded young narrator. The group puts on a hell of a live show to get like-minded mutants out of their seats.
