2013 EP by former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante. Outsides consists of a 10 minute guitar solo and 2 abstract 'out' pieces of music. This 10 minute song gives new life to the long ago popularly discarded form of the extended Rock guitar solo, and is also Progressive Synthpop just the same.

Track 2, Breathiac, is a particularly rare kind of breed, especially in the pop-world. And saying so: the definition of 'pop' seems out of place here. Even so to give it any kind of theoretical ground or categorization. Frusciante becomes more and more prolific in achieving his very personal expression-world. Anyway: it's nice to hear jumping octaves between the root and minor seconds, in the likes of Webern and Boulez, especially on guitar, and in this colorful environment.
What also strikes me on his latest records is the wonderful and musical way he uses timbres, sounds, and patterns in the synth domain, like conducting an orchestra without becoming boring bombastic. It's tasteful everywhere. And yes, I really like the way he cut's up rhythms. It makes it all so alive and dynamic. You won't get bored a single moment: continuously there's something going on somewhere.
I hope John keeps working in this direction: the honest listener needs it...
