Orange Milk presents the debut vinyl LP from Euglossine, aka Tristan Whitehill from Gainesville Florida. The album Sharp Time is a refinement and maturation of Whitehill’s explorations in synth, jazz, elevator, and fusion music, though previous album’s tongue-in-cheek moments are largely replaced by a focus on metallic sound design, intense composition, and darker synth pads to contrast Euglossine’s default airy modality. This contrast creates an anxious and contemplative undercurrent that paints each musical shift in vivid color and continuously propels the work forward. Taken as a whole, Sharp Time is a remarkable album of modern fusion that can viewed through many traditions without ever settling on one for too long.
