Songs For Winter


Black Sea has me falling deep into the Fennesz hole...a place I haven't been since 2001's Endless Summer (Mego). It's also got me remembering all night studio specials with Hotel Paral.lel bouncing between the walls on repeat at 200 Getrude Street, 1998...hello D!

"Fennesz does with sound what Stan Brakhage did with film, altering its very fabric and texture, employing disorder and error as forms of communication and expression. He forces you to learn a different method of perception and interpretation, to look beneath the chaos that seems to govern the movements of life and find the patterns beneath.” [Nick Southall]

YES! So refreshing to have such a talented person fussing with sounds and drawing out all these distant melodies...
