Rising from the ashes like a phoenix is Grant Evans, shedding his recording moniker of Nova Scotia Arms, to reveal his true self. Musically, Evans has shifted his focus, casting a courser sonic texture across his flowing rivers of sound.
Jewels From The House Of Worms is Evan’s contribution to A Guide To Saint’s ‘Cassette Diaries' series, a collection of momentary musics - recordings made in short periods of times - be that a day, a week or a little bit more. Evans delves deep into visceral washes of caustic sound, droning phrases and throbbing pulses of electronics. At its heart though beats a reflective, outwardly considered aesthetic. Each shift, each sonic gesture conducted with absolute intent and control.
Each edition of Jewels From The House Of Worms is hand assembled, hand sprayed and hand screen printed by the fine folks at 7th Disaster.

These experimental electronic songs, half of which stretch past the 10-minute mark, evolve slowly and with purpose, building incrementally to climaxes as intuitive as they are thrilling. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 13, 2020
Splitting the difference between mashups and DJ edits, the producer's latest project situates rap and R&B vocals alongside subdued instrumentals that privilege looped melodies and carefully-constructed atmosphere over percussive intensity. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 9, 2020
