TWO BIT DEZPERADOS: Self-titled: CD

Fucking delightful! Brazil’s Two Bit Dezperados play eclectic ‘60s garage pop. The music is bouncy and catchy and the singer sounds like she’s cheering. While they try out different things like farfisa organs, they return to a strummed folksiness that reminds me of when British Invasion bands added sounds of the American South to their music and came up with their own style. If you like Os Mutantes, those Pop a Paris comps, The Kinks, or smiling, then by all means get this.
