RIYL: Thurston Moore, Elliott Smith, Deerhunter, Lou Reed
Label: Joyful Noise Recordings
Joyful Noise Records have announced Thom Feketeâ€™s solo album release entitled, â€śBurner.â€ť 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, â€śTreasonâ€ťÂ encapsulates the mood of the whole album perfectly. Itâ€™s a track that is showered in a warm fuzzy sleepy day dream thatâ€™s all but over so suddenly. Thereâ€™s a lot of melancholic experimentation going on here. â€śBurnerâ€ť isÂ a much slowerÂ pace from what Surfer Blood fans may be used to andÂ itâ€™s a really nice change of scenery. (Admittedly I havenâ€™t listened to any Surfer Blood since their first release.)Â Thom FeketeÂ audibly opens up and puts the will of the human spirit on full display within this album.Â Listen to Treason here.
