Nelson Angelo E Joyce – Nelson Angelo E Joyce

This isn’t that easy breezy, bossa nova sound, it’s more that six in the morning on the beach and the sun is coming up and you’re on psychedelics vibe. I love Joyce, she’s one of many favourite Brazilian artists. Its psychedelic but it’s not trying to be like ‘PSYCHEDELIC!’, you know? Psychedelia at that point had permeated society so much, and Brazil for sure. We toured in Brazil. It was great. We’d be wandering around trying to figure out where to go. São Paulo was great for record shopping, it was great to finally get there.
