Chronicles of musical obsession: Brazilian, German, psychedelic, country-western, Brian-Wilson-related, good old indie-rock, and more.

On My Radio
Today's Talk of the Nation devoted a short segment to an interview with Brazilian director Fernando Meirelles, plugging his new film The Constant Gardener, but the majority of the chat (particularly when listeners call in) focuses on his utterly fantastic movie City of God, which I can't recommend highly enough. Lots of interesting info on the making of the earlier film and the social conditions in Brazil which inspired it.
