Macho Blush
Unsick

There’s a tiny shack outside Austin, Texas that can make the ill Unsick. Drawing from the light of her sturdy lantern, anti-folk noise-wave sha(wo)man Gina Probst gets Macho Blush on those incurable people through a variety of sounds that is nothing short of broken brilliance. Collaged and messed within the cycle of “what is music?” in honor of the Unsick, she has recorded some of these healing sessions and put it out on Crash Symbols. Within nine miracles, she hones in flecks of acoustic clash, warped chanting, and mixing alchemy to create some jarring internal care that all at once creates an uneasy of pure relaxation. So, weirdly, the antithesis of everything fucked in one’s body is actually the cure. Like in World War Z when Brad Pitt drinks a Pepsi and he’s invisible to zombies.

Last time we heard from the Crash Symbols legacy, it got a lil beaty/rappy. Now, they’ve gone and done themselves again, by pulling Unsick out of Macho Blush’s otherly being, and slapped it on tape. Progressing sound is the name of the game, and not only is Gina Probst on that via holistic listening, but Crash Symbols seriously never misses a beat. Even if Macho Blush is more of a clanging than a beat or crash.

Scope the stream of Unsick below, but if you want to get closer to 100% health, snag the new Macho Blush tape via Crash Symbols ASAP:
