Boogarins

As Plantas Que Curam (Other Music Recording Co.)

Recorded by two teenagers in a basement in Goiånia, a town of 1.3 million in the heart of Brazil, Boogarins' debut carries much of the same psychedelia as both Tame Impala and Foxygen, with a similar attention to sonic detail. October's As Plantas Que Curam rivals the former Aussie act's breakout Lonerism in both quirky production tactics (rain forest wildlife on "Despreocupar" and "Canção Perdida") and a willingness to filter everything through fuzz ("Erre," "Infinu"). Elsewhere, singer and multi-instrumentalist Fernando Almeida finds Sixties cheer on "Lucifernandis" and a subtle eeriness on "Eu Vou." Then there's "Paul," a janky and idyllic three-minute rock nugget that sounds like Mitch Mitchell decided to back up George Harrison singing Portuguese. Like the language, it sounds smooth and natural even if you don't understand what's happening. (Sat., 4:15pm, Elevation Amphitheatre)
