Alex Alexander Nighttime-friendly blend of ear-tingling textures, crispy beats, and seductively drawling vocals. Favorite track: Stalks.

Randy Harris sounds a little like an old bluesman sat down with an acoustic guitar and recorded 8 non-blues tracks on a play-station deck with the drum machine set on max pops and hiss. Quirky and weird, but somehow it sounds great. Favorite track: Stalks.

Ian Bertolacci Earth's only been around for 2016 years and already we've got jams like this, damn.

C The full album was just released a few days ago for me, and I just need to say, it made my day. Truly an amazing album. Haven't yet heard anything quite like it. :) I'll be listening to this for a long time. Favorite track: Coils.

Rafael Hara What can I say? I'm literally (not really but I may as well be) floating in this world Evan created. Stylish mix of electronic-acoustic vibes throughout and incredible wordsmanship.

Some truly tasty jams!

about

Coils is the latest offering from Santa Ana, CA native Evan Geesman. Fresh from the success of his previous digital-only release Lengua, with co-signs from Bandcamp’s Head Curator Andrew Jervis and Osunlade, his new work finds him delving deeper into his production palette interspersed with his songwriter‘s aesthetic, resulting in a decidedly denser sonic soundscape than its predecessor.

Born and raised in Santa Ana, CA Evan Geesman has been writing and recording songs since his early teens. From folk songs recorded on a 4 track in his parents’ garage to recent collaborations with local electronic beat collective GRN+GLD, Evan’s unique and prolific musical output have established him as both a singer songwriter and electronic/new beat producer.

While Evan’s previous material crossed several genres and had more of an experimental bent with influences varying from Aphex Twin, Wu-Tang, Mahavishnu Orchestra and world folk music, Coils represents a natural synthesis of his beat heavy electronic compositions and strong songwriting sensibilities. Many of the songs recorded over the last year began as guitar compositions, which were then painstakingly recreated electronically, building layers of arrangements consisting of electronic instruments, field recordings and his own vocals over an acoustic foundation. When asked to describe the album’s underlying theme, he cites how suffocating life in the modern world can be with the internet, TV, technology and the increasingly overwhelming speed of communication. Using music as a medium to convey this accurate yet unfortunate depiction of living in modernity, Coils doesn’t succumb to the dourness, it finds a way to remind those who listen that life can be softer.
