Jairus Sharif - Mega Optics (2021)

We're most familiar with Jairus Sharif as one of the friendly faces behind the counter at Recordland, so we were really interested in this tape he's been working on during the pandemic. Our minds are kind of blown after listening thru this - Sharif mixes elements of free jazz, krautrock, and experimental electronica to create an auditory wonderland. There's an excellent, short interview with him at It's Psychedelic Baby that gives a quick view into what went into creating this tape - we have many other questions we want to ask, most notably, "did we dream this?" This is an excellent tape, well worth picking up.

Get it via Sharif's bandcamp.
