Halo Refuser's new album, Melting Magic, is the latest installment of Asher Fulero's cerebral, beat-centric music project. In the past year and a half, he's released three EPs and the full-length debut Ambigrammatic as Halo Refuser (an anagram of his name). Technically, Melting Magic is Fulero's third full-length—he released The Green Piano under his own name in 2010. As different as his solo projects are, they're gargantuan leaps from his days playing with the usual suspects of Northwest jam bands. Though Halo Refuser has its ambient moments, Fulero's onstage electronic experiments are generally too bizarre for that modifier to be applied across the board. This isn't a criticism—minimalism at its most thought provoking demands its listeners' attention. Opening are bombastic Seattle-based PotatoFinger, whom nobody could mistake for a minimalist, and local electro-funk guy Afro Q Ben. REBECCA WILSON
