about

"Macho Blush is Austin based Gina Probst, a self taught multi-instrumentalist raised around music and inculcated with the natural sense of experimentation that comes from such elaborate solo-orchestration... as well as the peculiar influence of emergent no-wave sensibilities in psychedelia. Across her growing discography, self-released and occasionally in association with Austin noise outlets, Probst fuses diverse elements into rugged timbres... sometimes through strident passages but more often in an evolving, fitful hypnagogia, reflected in the shifting attitude and orientation of vocals and instrumentation alike. Despite the distinctive clangtint of her music, the 'noise' is incidental to exploring the dense creative space between wakened awareness and the symbolism of dreams, transmitted by oblique lyrics and miscellaneous thematic markers across both audio and text... though Macho Blush can resemble acousmatic music thanks to an impressionistic approach to sound production, these songs are nonetheless expressive, and particularly of their origins in the primordial act of creation." - Crash Symbols

"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.

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:" - Tiny Mix Tapes
