—__–___ (More Eaze & Seth Graham) released The Heart Pumps Kool-Aid in 2021, an album that’s been called an “expression of Midwestern sadness, the entrapment of class and inexpressible discontent”. This is a project composed of Mari & Seth, and accompanied with commissioned instrumentation from Karen Ng, Nick Storring, Rob Mcgill, Meteronori, spoken word from Proxy.exe and guest vocals from Recovery girl and Meteronori.

The opener “When you're hot around the narcs” showcases shoegaze-like whisper vocals with simple classical arrangements weaving blips of free jazz sax; this track sets the mood for The Heart Pumps Kool-Aid: a near-death experience from narcotics addiction (a common and personal story of Ohio).

There is clear vulnerability with phrases barely holding on to minimal arrangements. Mari's falsetto voice floats above breathing woodwinds, atonal classical expression with a consistent melancholy mood of crotale melody throughout The Heart Pumps Kool-Aid. A swirl of frustration and hopelessness led by crooner opera, akin to Harmony Korine’s works and Tilt by Scott Walker, or Blemish by David Sylvian.

“A body of work that is as numbing as it is touching, thanks to a unique combination of long pauses (too often forgotten in contemporary music), autotuned shards of vocals, reverberated explosions of metal screams, spaced out by electroacoustic and free-jazz manifestation. If you spent a considerable chunk of your life in the suburbs, this album will talk to you more than you can imagine.” Michele Sinatti, Soul Feeder

claire rousay has released music on a range of labels, most notably Astral Spirits, Second Editions, Longform Editions and American Dreams, who in 2021 released a softer focus, a collaboration with visual artist Dani Toral. rousay’s music has received acclaim from NPR, which writes that rousay “enchants the ordinary,” and Pitchfork, which calls her music “quietly devastating.”

rousay has presented music at venues like Issue Project Room, Casa Del Lago (CDMX) and Salon De Normandy (Paris), among many others, held residencies at Rhizome DC and Elastic Arts Exposure Series, and performed with musicians such as Ken Vandermark, Ingebrigt Haker-Flaten, Jacob Wick, and Tom Carter.
