Boomkat Product Review:
Over-easy DIY soul and bedroom jazz-funk by Tulsa’s Bryan Crenshaw aka The Growth Eternal, looping back to Leaving Records after his 2020 debut.
‘PARASAiL-18’ is what contemporary soul sounds like without all the major label gloss and trappings. Sharing an intimacy with Dawuna, but more psychedelic with it - The Growth Eternal lets the soul flow in nine parts of richly layered but raw harmonies and intricate chord progressions, synched to down-stroked offbeats, cloaked in a fug of bedroom atmosphere.
There’s a lowkey ingenuity at work between the pendulous baseline and footwork-typewriter percussion on ‘Sustainer’ and the finger-click percussion of ‘Slide on Me’ that permeates the whole record, with standout moments registered in the contemplative, cosmic R&B flex of ‘Roden’, a lo-slung sort of deep house winner ‘Within Me’, and the blushing tone to ‘Braid’.
