Action Research 174











































Action Research #174:

Gaute Granli
(Stavanger, Norway)
(fascinating experimental guitar adventures from overseas)
https://soundcloud.com/verletzte-kreature

Kevin Greenspon
(Los Angeles, CA)
(contemplative ambient techno and tape collage smear generating immersive video projector feeds)
http://kevingreenspon.info/
https://kevingreenspon.bandcamp.com/

Macho Blush
(Austin, TX)
("this might be one of the craziest/coolest tapes (‘Under Weight’) i've received thus far. this tape is absolutely awesome - exactly what i've been wanting to hear for a long time now… the music is completely unique and totally bizarre. to describe it accurately is tricky but its something along the lines of fragmented/collaged demented free jazz piano with no-wave drumming and chopped and screwed singing… i can't say i've heard anything this intriguing in a while."
--Cassette Gods )

Quartz Prawl 
(TN)
(mountainside experimentation & songs)

Euglossine
(recent vinyl release on Orange Milk Records! "The album Sharp Time is a refinement and maturation of Whitehill’s explorations in synth, jazz, elevator, and fusion music, though previous album’s tongue-in-cheek moments are largely replaced by a focus on metallic sound design, intense composition, and darker synth pads to contrast Euglossine’s default airy modality. This contrast creates an anxious and contemplative undercurrent that paints each musical shift in vivid color and continuously propels the work forward. Taken as a whole, Sharp Time is a remarkable album of modern fusion that can viewed through many traditions without ever settling on one for too long.")

Fjshwjfe
(Tampa, FL)
("...dark synth minimalism... As a singer, she can be haunting, ethereal and sometimes even feral. As a performer, she is musically brooding, lyrically baring and physically evocative." -- Bao Le-Huu, Orlando Weekly,  https://orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2016/10/04/halloween-comes-early-with-queen-of-darkness-eva-o-the-falcon )
