Far Out voyages through the Brazilian archives with this wild trip deep into mutated South American psychedelia, esoteric curios and trippy electronics. Those broadcasting from the outer regions include freaking out women Piri and Aleuda, medieval sambista Jose Mauro, and guerrilla space-rockers Binario. Far Out has taken a leap of faith with some of Brazil's edgiest artists, yet the high quality production for which the label is famed never falters on ten mind blowing compositions. Twisted soft psych and hard experimentalism from the further fringes of Brazil makes for a cinematic, dancing brew. The result is intoxicating.

Spaced Oddyssey kicks off with a double header of floating light and deranged darkness on Jose Mauro's masterpiece 'Apocalipse' and Piri's underground carnival 'Reza Brava'. Both lifted from Far Out's early compilation of Roberto Quartin's legendary Quartin Records, the tracks are some of the finest recordings to emerge from Brazil - rare, alternative and utterly unique.

Joyce's acid-folk masterpiece 'Visions of Dawn', many people's choice as re-issue of 2009 having been lost to the world since 1976, spawned the dreamy set-highlight 'Tudo Bonito' - the soft psych that emerged from this stunning Parisian session calms before Binario's space rock storm. Their absorbing hybrid is genre hopping, mind rattling and full of wobbly psychedelia. The jazz, rock musicianship is expert, the sense of improvisation intriguing. Rabotnik evolved as an electronic side-project of Rio's Binario. Part soothing soundtrack, part freak-out the neighbours, their atmospheric textures recall Autechre and Boards of Canada with the mix of complex driving rhythm, meticulous sequencing & minimalism.

Far Out's most famous sons Azymuth tie up this tripped out collection with two dance floor classics. 'Caca A Raposa' shows Azymuth at the height of their powers on seminal debut 'Azimuth'; a jazz funk groover with master of the keys and band leader Bertrami adding a Flora Purim style vocal melody and endless mind boggling effects as played by the most talented of human beings. Classic meets the new breed as Rabotnik remix Azymuth's 'Os Cara La' from their latest full-length 'Butterfly'. Robots and people collide as warped electronica and crazy samba provides a suitably, beautifully mad finale.

"It's where the nuts come from" - A truly trippy odyssey that takes the voyager through the strange, motion picture perfect world of the further fringes of Brazilian music.
