What’s bizarre about the ultra-influential Brazilian psych rockers’ first new release in 35 years isn’t the sprawling arrangements or the gaggle of unconventional instruments or even the political lyrics sung em Português, though each of those familiar motifs are present.

Even so, they cram enough tempo and genre changes to make even Of Montreal giddy.
