July In July

July- S/T

Before I reveal the artist from last week's Plain Brown Wrappers, I would like to talk about today's psychedelic relic culled from the archives of Eclectic Grooves. July's contagious mix of catchy refrains, experimental sonic trickery and expansive dynamics first landed on Eclectic Grooves in October of 2007. Specific tracks have been popping up on my Zen Touch lately, so I was eager to repost this amazing record. I thought that I could find some basic information about this band (like record label and year of release) but to no avail. If any of you have any insight, please don't hesitate to give me a shout.

Here is a review of the record that I posted back in October of 2007.

Now on to the answer to last week's Plain Brown Wrappers. Drum roll please.....

Icastico hit the nail right on the head when he guessed that it was the fiery Brazilian singer Silvinha Araujo. You never would have guessed it from the lackluster cover, but this album contains some of the most intensely passionate vocals ever pressed on vinyl. The only thing that I was able to find out about this self-titled record is that it was released in 1971. Anyway, I'm glad you guys enjoyed this one, and thanks for putting in your two cents.

I'll be back soon with more grooves that make you move and sounds to make you get down.

Wow...that was a lucky guess.
Hats off to icastico.
I have some later Silvinha that is very 'Brazilian', not at all like a female Janes Brown. This is some great stuff. Thanks again for the fun.

Ashamed to say I'd never heard of her until now. Fantastic stuff. Thanks a lot.

No matter how immersed in music you are, there are more bands you've never heard of than bands that you have...no shame needed.
