John Frusciante's Foregrow EP doesn't sound like any Acid Test record - or any record at all - that's come before it. After the unlikely alliance between the Los Angeles label and the iconoclastic Venice, CA, musician on 2015's Trickfinger (AT 005CD/LP), all bets are off. This one's truly a passage through night. Frusciante uses elements of John Carpenter's eternal scores, the drum programming DNA of jungle and footwork, and, yes, a Roland TB-303, all slowed down to a crawl. The Foregrow EP is a lurching, lysergic beauty that offers glimpses of Frusciante's platinum pop instincts, but only behind the veil of true experimentalism.
