Music: Grapefruit – Stolen Highway

Charlie Salas-Humara just doesn’t know when to quit, does he? And for that we should praise whatever deity we can find. It’s been exciting enough to see him lose himself in the frantic polyrhythms of Sun Angle and get really really spacey as a member of Regular Music. But for me, his solo work as Grapefruit reveals the most creative parts of his person. This latest cassette (released just this week on Constellation Tatsu) unfurls long synth bleats and wandering guitar lines that upends the usual nostalgia factor that can strangle similar borderline New Age efforts.  If you like what you hear, be sure to hit the Experimental Portland Presents… event happening on September 11th, where Grapefruit will be performing at Rotture alongside Midday Veil and ALTO!.
