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

Label: Joyful Noise Recordings

Joyful Noise Records have announced Thom Fekete‚Äôs solo album release entitled, ‚ÄúBurner.‚ÄĚ 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, ‚ÄúTreason‚Ä̬†encapsulates the mood of the whole album perfectly. It‚Äôs a track that is showered in a warm fuzzy sleepy day dream that‚Äôs all but over so suddenly. There‚Äôs a lot of melancholic experimentation going on here. ‚ÄúBurner‚ÄĚ is¬†a much slower¬†pace from what Surfer Blood fans may be used to and¬†it‚Äôs a really nice change of scenery. (Admittedly I haven‚Äôt 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.
