RIYL: Thurston Moore, Elliott Smith, Deerhunter, Lou Reed

Label: Joyful Noise Recordings

Joyful Noise Records have announced Thom Fekete’s solo album release entitled, “Burner.” This release is special with the entire album being recorded in his own home on a 4-tracker. With the single clocking in at only 1:28 long, “Treason” encapsulates the mood of the whole album perfectly. It’s a track that is showered in a warm fuzzy sleepy day dream that’s all but over so suddenly. There’s a lot of melancholic experimentation going on here. “Burner” is a much slower pace from what Surfer Blood fans may be used to and it’s a really nice change of scenery. (Admittedly I haven’t listened to any Surfer Blood since their first release.) Thom Fekete audibly opens up and puts the will of the human spirit on full display within this album. Listen to Treason here.
