ABOUT:

Since early 2020, Calgary-based improvisor Jairus Sharif  has been generating a steady stream of passionate and unclassifiable homespun solo recordings that forge unprecedented connections between hip-hop abstraction, cosmic skronk, outsider jazz, and staunch post-punk DIY ethos. Water & Tools, his strange and stirring debut for Toronto’s Telephone Explosion Records (home to full-lengths from the likes of Brodie West’s Eucalyptus, Mas Aya, and Joseph Shabason), offers a glimpse into this ongoing hermetic journey. It’s a dense, contradictory statement with a blustery surface that shelters a soulful heart. It’s generous music, exuding profound vulnerability, all the while brimming with electric wide-eyed wonder.
