Grant Evans: Silent Refusal tape

Grant Evans: Silent Refusal tape

A much darker, more desolate set of drones than I’ve heard from Mr. Evans. Feels like glowing, radioactive machines, which makes it no surprise that “appliances” is listed as an instrument. A lot more is going on than that, however; there’s also cello, harp, guitars, organs, and feedback. It shifts very slowly and subtly over the course of two 25-minute sides. It manages to get darker and more austere during the second side. The title suggests that this is some sort of act of protest, and it’s hard to tell exactly what for, but whatever it is, he ain’t budgin’.
