Intrepid and impossible to categorise gem plucked up from the Brazilian underground of the late 1980’s - a scene that is quite rightly now coming into focus, with that killer Mumia LP last year and now THIS.  Rumoured to be the first attempt in the country’s history to fuse synthesisers and electronics to traditional latin rhythms, Caracol is an audacious trip that sought to break free from the stylistic, pop-heavy shackles that strangled the nation’s youth music of the time.  Self-funded and self-released by the artists it’s easy to see why it would be misunderstood in 1989 - woozy, off-kilter rhythms colliding with garbled, electronically-mangled voices, together with lush, 4th-world polyrhythms that’s still a joy to untangle 30 years after it’s release..
