The sound of The Beatles, completely re-imagined by a host of hip acts from Brazil – a stunning lineup that includes some under-discovered talents from the younger generation, plus a few key artists from earlier years as well! As you'd guess from the "69" in the title, most of the tracks here are from the final years of the group – and lots of titles here are from separate solo projects – opened up and given a whole new sort of energy here – showing the rich inspiration the fab four were still able to provide, even at the end! Beatles music has been a crucial influence on Brazil, from the 60s Jovem Guarda and Tropicalia scenes onward – and the work here really shows the range of influences, extrapolated through really creative instrumentation, vocal arrangements, and production techniques. The whole thing's hardly another "tribute to" session – and instead is more like an extended poem inspired by the work of John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Titles on this second volume include "The Ballad Of John & Yoko" by Front, "Old Brown Shoe" by Twiggy & Holics, "Hot As Sun" by Surfadelica, "The Back Seat Of My Car" by Aerocirco, "Another Day" by Ze Ramalho, "Isn't It A Pity" by Hevelyn Costa, "Behind That Locke
d Door" by Sergio Reis, "Beautiful Girl" by Emmerson Noguiera, "I Found Out" by Saomer Zwadomit, and "I Live For You" by Tantra.
