Million Brazilians - Strange Oasis
Nonlocal Research unearth a gem recorded in 2015 in Montville, Maine by mysterious jam band Million Brazilians.
Unfurling wildly and unpredictably over six numbered tracks, Strange Oasis is "Loaded with layers of tribal percussion, far-out atmospheres and exotic melodies, this record achieves to gather lush and mystery in a tangible fabric of sound. Flutes pass as birds, taps as humid drops, melodies as organic currents. A ritual happening far away and within simultaneously." A slow burning listen, much of the disc feels like a syrupy re-interpretation of much of the Pacific City Sound Visions catalog or a screwed version of the Sun Araw band. Their esoteric brand of mysticism feels outside of time (or at least a linear interpretation) and feels amorphously tangible over the near 60-minute listen... strongly recommended as a totally novel sounds to our ears.
