"We’re re-releasing two of Tom Zé’s albums—thirty years after they first came out!—both chock full of avant garde pop hits ready to be discovered and exalted by the mainstream. 

On both The Best of Tom Zé: Massive Hits (Brazil Classics 4)—compiled by the guy who’s great idea this record label was, David Byrne—and The Hips of Tradition: The Return of Tom Zé (Brazil 5), here’s what you have in store: Household appliances and tools in arrangements with horns, strings, “prepared” guitars (punctuated by grunts, screams and wild percussion), all melded with eccentric metaphorical lyricism. The result: sounds of “sambas and archangels / street and street riot,” sometimes hypnotic, dissonant and always a beautiful amalgamation of unusual noises, hysterical lyrics, and pop songs that remain an essential part of the Brazilian legacy of musical exploration.

The 30th anniversary edition of The Hips of Tradition also comes in a gatefold, in unlimited black vinyl and a limited Amazon Green: " (Bandcamp message of 05-05-2023).
