FOQL & Fischerle - Personal Wastelands
This first-time collaboration between Poland-based musicians FOQL and Fischerle summon "Personal Wastelands," for Paralaxe Editions, a label known for releases that warp cookie-cutter genre parameters into unexpected territory. The two artist's unique musical backgrounds intertwine on the six tracks within, composed entirely via drum machine. A surprise, given the complexity of its frenetic layers of atmospheric tension. The aptly titled tracks --"Communication Swamp,"Swimming Pool," and Limbo"---oscillate in-between spiraling dub and deteriorating rhythms, anchored by sinewy basslines fit for dancing in the bleak landscape.
Edition of 100 with letterpress design work by L’automatica in Barcelona, so snag them while you can.
