With four records in the bag, Evil Gima has slowly and quietly (or loudly) made a name for itself as the boundary-pushers on the FFRSD roster. Evil Gima's music is the aural equivalent of laying on a beautiful bed with foam and comfy blankets but the bed is floating on hot bubbling lava. This river of lava also has a cliff coming up that it will spill over.
While overall Evil Gima's music tends to be on the experimental and ambient side, it's often presented with a sense of melody or lyricism rare in those genres. Evil Gima often buries melodies in the middle of huge sonic soundscapes and plucks moments of humor in even the darkest experimental pieces. Half the time, their music can lull a listener into a state of sleepiness and the other half jolt them wide awake from a pulsing depth charge.
In their third record, Evil Gima created a ambient and experimental album that is comparable to a more relaxed Tim Hecker and a more fumbly and out there Fennez (as if that were possible). At times, the music can be incredibly impersonal and uncaring, and at other times it can be so up close as to make us bashful.
Musically-speaking, AES sounds like ceaselessly changing clouds.
