    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 Luaka Bop, 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!

                  In celebration of the iconoclastic master of song, politics, satire and human relations, Luaka Bop is releasing a vinyl-only box set, Studies of Tom Zé: Explaining Things So I Can Confuse You- which pulls together for the first time a trilogy of “studies” on Brazilian musical styles—Massive Hits, Estudando o Pagode, and Estudando a Bossa. The latter two recordings have never been issued on vinyl and the former has never been available in the US. This retrospective collection from the first artist ever signed to Luaka Bop is limited edition and hand numbered. The box also includes a Tom Zé/Tortoise 7'' recorded live at the Barbican, a CD conversation between Zé, David Byrne, and Arto Lindsay, and a vinyl sized 12 page booklet written by Brazilian scholar Christopher Dunn. All video imagery here taken from the extraordinary-and award winning documentary TOM ZÉ ASTRONAUTA LIBERTADO by Ígor Iglesias González.
