If there’s one thing you know about John Frusciante, it’s that he’s a gifted guitarist and a beloved member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers over the years. He’s also a prolific solo artist, as well.

In addition to crucial contributions on key Chili Peppers albums over the decades, including a new album that has been in the works since shortly after Frusciante re-joined the band in December 2019, he’s also released several solo projects.

His latest is called Trickfinger, and a four-song EP of experimental acid-jazz music popped up this week on Bandcamp. The release is courtesy of Evar Records, a label founded by Frusciante with girlfriend Marcia Pinna. The label bio includes this blurb of information on the Bandcamp page:

Owned and operated by Aura T-09 & Trickfinger, Evar Records is an experimental electronic label emphasizing genre defying transitory hybrid musical spaces with music for the brain and body alike.

NME notes that John Frusciante has two more releases in the works for 2020, in addition to whatever the Chili Peppers are able to put together (or not, if progress is delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic).
