Gal Costa :: Baby

Vibes, here. Gal Costa, on her 1969 self-titled lp, covers, amongst other Tropicalia staples, the Caetano Veloso-penned - Os Mutantes-popularized - “Baby.” Costa swaps out the mutant garage-psych for a taste of airy and elegant cool. Gone are the shimmering organ and winding guitar and in their stead we find swirling and soaring strings. The tune starts with a subtle but undeniable bassline, accented by distant drum clicks . . .
