Arthur Verocai - S/T

Apparently, Arthur Verocai is old news to crate diggers and beat makers, but I just caught wind of this 1971 album from Brazil's answer to David Axelrod thanks to a fine homemade comp of obscure Tropicalia and more over at Ghost Capital and thought I'd post the whole thing. I can see why dudes like Madlib and MF Doom are all over this. Breezy Brazilian pop dipped in reverb with big brassy choruses, unpredictable arrangements and sample-ready 70s drums anchoring it all down. Perfect for summer or any time of the year, really.
