Fescal – Beautiful Neurotic

Artist: Fescal
Title: Beautiful Neurotic
Netlabel: Camomille Music
Release Date: 29 November 2010

One of the first netlabel releases I reviewed this year was Guanxi’s Pixel and apparently Fescal, the artist behind Beautiful Neurotic, may or not be the same person. However, good is good, so on with the review regardless if they are the same person or not. Beautiful Neurotic is a four-track LP with the first track, “Cecrophia Moth”, a beautiful drone piece with noise and slight glitches that encompasses almost half the release. It is quickly followed by “F-ck-New-York” that comes blaring in like a traffic jam of wobbling taxi cabs. And the last two tracks seem to be drones heavily mixed with field recordings. The liner notes say that Fescal uses “distress and suspense to make us vulnerable to the following serene, awe-inspiring moments.” I can’t argue with that.
