Grapefruit: Light Fronds CS
Grapefruit is the experimental project by Portland musician and painter Charlie Salas-Humara. His ninth album under the moniker, "Light Fronds" is steeped in heady minimalism and hypnotic, casual psychedelia. It’s an album of colorful and loose jams; layering viola, guitar, synth and piano into a rolling, pastoral experience. Touches of new age and modern classical fill the space as well. The Frippertronics-esque tape loops and kosmische inspired compositions on "Light Fronds" are sublime and transportive, ideal qualities for this afternoon zone-out.
