“Start with the River”
This time last year, Faex Optim released an album for Netlabel Day 2015 (Mercury) and this year, once again to coincide with Netlabel Day we have a brand new nine track album by Faex Optim entitled ‘Start with the River’.
Igloomag describes Start with the River ‘Collecting tranquil interludes gone astray, broken childhood samples, psychedelic undertones and kaleidoscopic colors colliding in blissful accord, this is where Faex Optim resides. A place where corroded percussion, fragmented melodies and disjointed harmonies swirl in cohesive unity.’
Faex Optim once again gives us an amazing release drawing of strong influences from Boards of Canada, and every fan of Mike Sandison and Marcus Eoin will be blown away by these tracks, Ennet House and Moscow School being two favourites for this fan.
