        Narrated by David Byrne Blip Hop is a spawn of various social, cultural, and geographical phenomena. Originating from the regions of Northern Europe, the long arduous winters and social democratic governments led its peoples to a life of indoor leisure. For the first time in human history a society of people would spend time with a machine and create a strong, healthy, and reflexive relationship for artistic, musical, and social means and turning their computers and electronic machines into a new friend. Our reporter delves into how the use of unnatural sounds and a displayed pride through electronic music, communicates the naturally unnatural life of a Northern European.

                    Narrated by Devendra Banhart. Support Tim Maia on iTunes http://bit.ly/PUzVgr or at http://LuakaBop.com Tim Maia might well be the greatest (and craziest) soul singer you never heard of. Infamous in Brazil, Tim Maia was a soul grenade that exploded in the 1970’s. He single handedly revolutionized Brazilian popular music and had the best time ever doing it. His story is one of humorous excess in every way imaginable and has something for all the family: drugs, women, money, guns and even a UFO cult thrown in. He lived the dream, always with a smile on his face. So don your white robes, drop a tab or two and get wild for Tim Maia’s first big worldwide release. VIVA TIM!

                      Narrated by Devendra Banhart (Support Tim Maia on iTunes - http://bit.ly/PUzVgr) This is the story of Tim Maia, possibly the greatest (and craziest) soul singer you never heard of. Infamous in Brazil, Tim was a soul grenade that exploded in the 70s. He single handedly revolutionized Brazilian popular music and had the best time ever doing it. His story is one of humourous excess in every way imaginable and there’s something for all the family: drugs, women, money, guns and even a UFO cult thrown in. He REALLY lived the dream, always with a smile. This animated film has been created in a close collaboration between SuperHeroes Amsterdam, ShopAround and record label Luakabop, to celebrate Tim’s album launch and introduce the world to a soul superstar. After a decade of legal wrangling, Luaka Bop’s Nobody Can Live Forever: The Existential Soul of Tim Maia is a fifteen track survey of Maia's 1970s recordings, completely remastered and packed with the sweetest warmest sun drenched soul you can imagine. So don your white robes, drop a tab or two and get wild for Tim Maia’s first big worldwide release. VIVA TIM!
