"It’s not necessarily relaxing or calming. It’s more like setting a steady buzz into your medulla oblongata to facilitate the flow of blood to your extremities. You’ll feel alive and tingling and fully aware. Get a cassette deck that will play both sides in a loop to better facilitate the immersive experience of Slip Enchantments. Your mind and body will thank you for it."

"New release of the day: MILLION BRAZILIANS Poderoso Monicato: 
exotic cut-ups, hazy jazz, Sun Ra-nods" - WFMU

Exotica avant garde mystical music that is impossible to classify.” 
- Eric Issacson, Mississippi Records

"...gloriously fucked"
-Robert Ham, Portland Mercury

"Record Picks of 2015" - Tim Thorton, Gotta Groove Records

"Mining different elements in jazz, experimental electronics, and ”eastern" music, Million Brazilians have created their new full length album, and its a deep one stirring of sonic mysteries all woven into a dark jazz backdrop making a super psychedelic trip.  Patience is a virtue with this album as it starts out nice with some amazing flute action until it morphs into some contemplative and expansive spiritual jazz exploration; the sort of thing that Million Brazilians has definitely mastered.  Poderoso Monicato unfurls into a massive haze of some seriously intense and unique sounds with warbling hooks on electric guitar, percussive skitter, soulful voice, moody melodic horns, warped throat singing, and wonderfully expansive keys evolving into the more far-out, sci-fi aspects of the Sun Ra sound.  The flipside features two round table movements verging on dub but mixed with rotating solos of wild free jazz bursts, washed out guitar, crystal clangs, smokey late night double reed grooves only to be interjected by a pang of heavy tribal drum & flute workouts, and finally swirling into a simmer of bubbling haunted cut-up spoken words.  Monicato features lots of worldly influences for sure, in the instrumentation, the chant-like vocals, and the arrangements but it's hard to describe, other than to say it's a pretty fantastical trip through the resulting sonic document, and not surprising when Mississippi Record’s co-founder Eric Issacson recently described the Million Brazilians as “Exotica avant garde mystical music that is impossible to classify.”  This is the sort of thing that should appeal to freaky jazz lovers as much as outsider avant/experimental music obsessives.  Highly Recommended!" - Chris Webb, Midheaven Mailorder
