Quarteto Em Cy - 1975-76 - Antologia Do Samba Canção (Vol. 1 & 2)

Bossa nova meets a Phil Spector-esque wall of sound, creating something truly lush and intoxicating.
Beautiful harmonies play off elegant Spanish guitar and relaxed percussion.
These two releases really showcase the quartet's vocal talent, so if you haven't heard them, this will serve as a great introduction.
I put volume 1 and 2 in the same zip file.
Do yourself a favor and grab them up.

Here they are.

Brainiac - Demos

Brainiac was easily one of the best bands of the 90s.
Their career ended just when it was about to take off when vocalist Tim Taylor died in a car accident.
To this day I haven't really heard anything like them and can only imagine what they'd sound like if they were still around.
Here's a bunch of their unreleased demos that I've found over the years.
As a bonus I've included their cover of "Petrified" by Pere Ubu.
This one's for the heads.

Get it here.
