fennesz : seven stars
10" vinyl ep
Latest offering from the ever-impeccable Christian Fennesz. This new solo vinyl EP is his first release on Touch since the "Black Sea" album in 2008.
Playing acoustic and electric guitars, bass, synths, and computers Fennesz comes up with some pleasant, somewhat placid, distorted and phased sounds that remind me very much of the stuff he was doing on the "Endless Summer" album way back in 2001. Like most of his production, "Seven Stars" focuses on digitally manipulated sounds, layers of effects. Very dark and dreamy. Highly recommended. Beautiful artwork as usual from Jon Wozencroft. one2zero

A CD version of this release will be available sometime in September.
