VOLCANIC GREMLIN MAGNET
Million Brazilians & Thollem Electric


\

Order at Psychic Sounds

"For Freaks Only"
-Thollem McDonas 

"Wonderfully weird collaboration, between avant free jazz tribalists Million Brazilians and legendary improvised pianist Thollem McDonas creating a combo of yet another freaky transmission from whatever otherworldly outpost these mysterious Portland free jazz & drone outsiders call home, and lordy, is it chaotic, throbbing and beautiful. Eerie wavering electric insect buzz delicately unfurl near the start, quiet and pretty... that gives way to a ceremonial gong call churning into a rhythmic jam of deep bass and cyclic hand drum groove, super fuzzed-out organ, angular guitar thwack, flute coloration, and wailing sax sometimes in perfect harmony, other times exploding into an eruption of turbulent jazz freak out truly sounding like a primordial opening of volcanic cavern. Within those various sounds, MB & Thollem, intentionally twist everything all up, adding all kinds of evocative noises, woozy marimbas, mysterious rumbles, swirling jungle drums, sonic detritus of bells, shakers and ghostly calls that seem to unfold and flower and splinter into all sorts of different shapes and sounds as the set progresses forming some sort of scene like a Central American ritualistic exorcism into ecstatic celebration ending with a gorgeous distant flute calling. The Million Brazilian's sound have managed to be dangerously distinct and totally prolific, but completely enigmatic and underground at the same time. With Thollem's range between spastic gritty textures to enthralling minimalist pulsations of a well tempered synthesizer, "Volcanic Gremlin Magnet" creates a lush, expressive, and alien strain of jazz. It's a fantastic 54 minutes, all right! Highly Recommended!"

!!! FOXY DIGITALIS - "Performance of the Year: Million Brazilians, Dyngia Salon" !!!

  
" Right about the time I was introduced to Corum’s Beguiling Isles (Psychic Sounds) album, I also experienced this tape by Million Brazilians. The tape was made, I gather, by the same faces that run Psychic Sounds Recordings out of Portland, OR. This loose collaboration of players captured my imagination with works that seem to drift between boundless compositions and focused, energetic improvisations. Patient execution and tone-bending, a-cultural elements add strange shades to the proceedings on both sides of this tape, which fuse strong individual contributions and energetic interplay through a range of secret jazz and dangerously unassuming drone." 



MANY THANKS TO JUSTIN @ FRIENDS and RELATIVES RECORDS +
 EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED THE 2012 MB EFFORTS!!!
