Freelove Fenner: Do Not Affect A Breezy Manner

Freelove Fenner: Do Not Affect A Breezy Manner

Short album of indie-pop miniatures from a Montreal-based band. The foundation is minimalist post-punk bass/guitar/drums/vocals, but there’s plenty of experimentation with tape loops, analog synthesizers and pianet. The songs are cleanly produced and sophisticated, never settling into predictable structures and hooks. Sometimes it faintly resembles High Llamas or Sea & Cake minus the lush instrumentation. There’s also a few short BBC Radiophonic Workshop-style interludes. Feels a little isolated, so if you’re going to be spending this winter that way, this might compliment that.
