Boogarins' blissful yet energetic psych-rock debut, As Plantas Que Curam ("Plants That Heal"), lived up to my expectations. And I've been enjoying their performance-based videos, too.
For the swirling, Pink Floyd-by-way-of-the Dukes of Stratosphear "Erre," however, they turned to director Steven Mertens for the animated clip below. I don't get it, and I'm not sure that Mertens had any sort of overarching message in mind, but I enjoyed watching it. Since March, the Goiânia group has been touring Europe and the US, including a stop at Austin Psych Fest in May, but they'll be giving the Northwest a pass. I'm not sure why, but I hope that changes someday.
Bonus: the band performs a lovely new song, "Olhos," in singer Benke's backyard.
