Dinho Almeida (vocals and guitar) and Benke Ferraz (multi-instrumentalist), cofounders of Brazilian psych-rock outfit Boogarins (Portuguese for a kind of jasmine flower), joined forces in 2012. When DJ Chilly interviewed them on KEXP last year, Ferraz recalled that they started writing songs in high school. In 2013, the Goiânia band expanded to a quartet and released their debut, As Plantas Que Curam. By their 2015 follow-up, Manual, they knew better than to mess with their winning formula. Instead of a change in direction, it’s a more confident take on a relaxed style in which samba-esque vocals entwine with luminescent guitars and cool-jazz rhythms, like Fifth Dimension Byrds by way of Syd Barrett–era Pink Floyd. They’re one of the best psychedelic acts going—in Brazil or anywhere. KATHY FENNESSY
