No Sub ReinoDos Metazoarios
Now back on vinyl (presented with a gatefold sleeve) is another great 1973 acid-folk/psych album from Brazil’s Solar/Rozenblit catalogue. Credited to guitarist Marconi Notaro, this highly regarded work co-features the talents of cult heroes Lula Cortes and Ramalho. Musically we get a mind bending blend of tropicalia-tinged folk, Latin vibes and bossa nova rhythms, uplifted by joyful experimentations with electronic sounds and trance-inducing effects. Tribal-esque percussion complements the ragas, created by the beautiful sitar-like instrument ‘tricordio’, designed by Lula Cortes himself.
