Eaves | Grl EP

August 23, 2013 at 3:14 am Leave a comment

Los Angeles producer, Eaves, released his third EP “Grl”, and it finds him pushing the envelope further and in a different direction than the previous releases. “Grl” is a sort of conceptualization of quick-twitch sounds, collages of blips, lovely synthetics, and electronics snippets that come together like music in kaleidoscopic form. What I mean is, there’s a playfulness, a real artfulness and beauty in a seemingly sporadic, wild collections of sounds, patterns and arrangements. The title track, one of the best songs on the seven-track record, combines pitch-shifted female vocal samples with soft musical transitions and delicate combinations of rhythm. The overall effect is like mixing electronic high art with soothing repetitions that wash across the mind like a child’s lullaby. But Eaves can also shift gears, in subtle ways. On the enigmatically-titled, “Covered In”, he digs deeper, the quiet ping-ponging electronics taking precedence, feeling like an autumn evening with the windows open listening to raindrops falling hypnotically onto patio pavement. Eaves had released a track, “Yyh”, earlier this year, but now you can stream the entire EP at his soundcloud page or at bandcamp, courtesy of the artist and label Futures Collective. — David D. Robbins Jr.
