For our sophomore release New Zealand’s Fauxhound delivers an emotional mixture of spoken word musings with noise and drone influenced chiptune, which sometimes strikes out with flourishes of dub inspired grooves and shimmering summery sounds, all of which are tainted with the black paintbrush of Fauxhound’s now trademark desperate depression and pessimistic self-worth. From the circus ground twinkly melody on the outset of ‘AIRPORTAL’ to the immediately confrontational vocal interludes, ‘This Is Not A Game, Boy’ melds familiar and seemingly innocent sounds into a medley of dark and dank sadness.
With influences too far, wide and convoluted to list or name, Fauxhound’s sound is a truly unique one, inside and outside chiptune circles. Taking to the piggy tracker this time around, Fauxhound’s pallet of melodies and styles grows ever larger and tainted by his own keen sense of the macabre-sounding, and this release definitely sounds like his most definitive, defiant and expressive output to date.Tracklist:
