Fennesz 

Bécs (Editions Mego)

Austria’s electroacoustic mastermind Christian Fennesz returns with his first proper LP in six years. Billed as a conceptual follow-up to his best-known album, 2001’s Endless Summer, Bécs feels more like an overview of the many intoxicating sounds Fennesz has created over the last 13 years. Ranging from sumptuous guitar-driven pieces that induce a sense of weightlessness, to blown-out, overpowering bundles of noise, it feels expansive and commanding. The centrepiece is a 10-minute journey titled “Liminality,” a total reworking of a composition from the 2011 Seven Stars EP, featuring tense percussion and blissful hills of white noise. A great point of entry for the curious.
