[MORPH] Started in July 2012, Philip Grass is averaging just under one release per month. Pretty productive for two guys with unfortunately named, obscure solo projects: Ben Durfee, aka not-the-Australian-metal-band Portals, and Burton Schaber, aka not-the-airline-skills-training Crmdrm. Neither stoner band nor postmodern composer, Philip Grass is between worlds. It’s not unusual for tracks, like “WhotoldyoutoputaGonit (fity)” off first release Trail.Mixes, to channel juke, dubstep, hip-hop and space jazz at various points during a three-minute track. It’s not strange to hear pitch-warped chopping and screwing that escapes the witch-house vogue, instead allying the group with EDM label Dropping Gems. Is it odd to believe J Dilla has been stoned back to life and now continues his quirky, twitchy solo sound as Philip Grass? Yet Philip Grass is somewhere between unusual, strange and odd, a single letter in the fundamental DNA of its influences, altered to create a new species.
