About this item

Hailing from Sao Paulo, Brasil now currently residing in the outskirts of Europe, Fernando may be better known for his more floor oriented releases as Innsyter or Seixlack. Fans of PPU take note!
For this release, his first lp under his given name, we get a vast array of mutant electronics with surprisingly insane, almost pop, songwriting structure over 15 tracks. These songs conjure up a weird netherworld where all things bizarre and wrong come to head and spiral out of control.
Think the drum machine driven punk funk dub outs of 80s New York City meets the catchy low fi charm of Ariel Pink combined with the element of chewed up vhs cassettes getting spit out of the machine and your on the right track. Fernando manages to create a truly unique sound that's equal parts catchy yet has sinister, underlying back alley undertones. Check "Actual Job" for immediate Arthur Russell vibes or the VHS boogie of "Erotic Moments" for starters. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: Brutal and uncompromising album here from the L.I.E.S side of techno. It is techno but not in its dance form. This is appropriate for home listening as much as soundtrack for your lysergic and psychedelic trips. Think of Moon B and you are not far off what we are dealing with. It is good. It is very good.
