This warped slice of soul-washed house comes from Evan Jones, a producer currently living and studying in London and who—we’re told—has released music under a variety of aliases over the years. “Good Grief” is one of a handful of tracks Jones pieced together over the summer, and from the sound of this particular tune, it certainly seems like it was time well spent. At its core, “Good Grief” is a shuffling house number fueled by a loop of murky piano chords. Still, it is really what happens above the buried sample that makes “Good Grief” a captivating listen, as an innumerable collection of gritty textures and loosely manipulated FX are strewn across the track’s surface, shifting this one from a jazzy, low-swung house track into something enjoyably a bit more left of center.
