レッド・ホット・チリ・ペッパーズにも復帰したジョン・フルシアンテの変名によるドラムマシーン、シンセサイザーによるプロジェクトTRICKFINGER。これまでAcid Testから2枚のアルバムをリリースしていますが今回は、ACID TESTの別働レーベルAvenue 66からのリリース。多層的なシンセサイザーサウンド、ダブやミキシングのマジック。リズム、時間の感覚のユニークさ。「凡庸だ」みたいな論評見かけたけれど、ちゃんとよく聴いた方がいいと思います。

On his third album as Trickfinger, John Frusciante makes the jump from Acid Test to its leftfield sub-label, Avenue 66, to unleash the full scope of his vision. On She Smiles Because She Presses The Button, the legendary, LA-based cult figure, presents his most diverse yet cohesive album to date.
Frusciante has the melodic and programming chops to jump from style to style while sounding only like himself. “Amb” is the welcome middle-ground between Balearic and IDM while “Brise” with its quick syncopations and rhythmic groove provide a contrasting fabric. Elsewhere, JF caroms through electro and pastoral, “intelligent” ambient. The common thread through this quixotic journey are his trademark, timeless melodies.
For years now, Frusciante has immersed himself in machines, learning tracker programs, synths and drum machines inside and out, applying the same, tireless approach he’s exhibited through-out his career. On She Smiles Because She Presses The Button, this period of intense study leads intense creative liberation.
