Grapefruit – Some New-Age BullshitPosted: September 6, 2015
Isn’t it annoying when there are bands or albums with some totally misleading music genre related names? Like there’s this band called Eagles of Death metal and they play some alt rock bullshit? Or you have this album called Black Metal by this dude named Dean Blunt and it turns out it’s some woozy bedroom melancholic avant pop bullshit? How refreshing it is to see an album name describing exactly what is inside. The new album by Charlie Salas-Humara, alias Grapefruit is precisely New Age bullshit. With some lovely warm tribalisms added to the krautrockish synthesizer grooves that bubbles and soothes it is New Age bullshit that feels much more alive, dynamic and fresh than most New Age bullshit these days.
