The second of two 45s to launch F-Spot Records’ psych-world-folk subsidiary label Pangea International Recording Co. is this one from Os Zabelês. Cover tracks? Yup – this time of two Funkadelic numbers – A-side If You Don’t Like the Effects, Don’t Produce the Cause from America Eats Its Young and B-side Back In Our Minds from Maggot Brain both done in a funky samba stylee. Ok – executed by a super-group? Yup – on the A-side Diana Purim (daughter of Airto) and Destani Wolf share vocals, Bobby Easton does Brazilian percussion, Oliver Charles is on sticks, cavaquinho and violao while Fishbone’s Norwood Fisher is all about the bass. You know you want to.
(Out 19 May on Pangea International Recording Co.)
