Comment: we are listening to an album from Brazil under the fantastic California, US-based imprint Death Roots Syndicate. Koti & Thee Immigrants´ 10 track issue was initially released under Fon-Fon Records approximately five and a half years ago so it is quite surprising yet welcome to hear it under an imprint which has used to release issues being dark and gothic (yet playful and artsy). The Relaxing Sounds From Tinsley Prison is predominantly a psychedelic case with fluid dusty organ lines and suggestive singing. There is up a song called Gipsy Man with hints at the life of Romani people so could I presume these 33 minutes are about the life of the ethnicity with some dodges into other culture`s layers either? All this Balkan and Gypsy music influenced music has been a mainstream for more than 10 years largely thanks to motion pictures by Emil Kusturica. By listening to the final instrumental track Tinsley House Tea Time you can admit the collective`s tongue-in-cheek attitude with regard to Music Hall-alike buffoonish loosely sequenced rhythms and the acidic organ and Tiki Music drenched improvistation which funny facet can be generalized over the course.  The more I listen to it the more I hear similarities with Juan Naveira aka Mr Juan aka Juanitos aka Limbo Deluxe aka Miss Emma. That's hugely important especially for a starting weekend. In a word, this album is strongly recommended for all those music lovers who enjoy an artsy challenge and a moody aspect within one bound.
