Review – “Feel.Love.Thinking.Of.”
Faunts (Friendly Fire Recordings) Originally published by ʻSUP Magazine, January, 2009.
The other day I was the one choosing music at the office and after I hit “Next” I guess one too many times a coworker asked me if when I reviewed albums I just told people to skip all the slow songs. I yelped at him for thirty seconds or so, but then I was distracted and had to get up because the song that had come on was boring.
I do like dark, spacey, substance-inviting music. Really, I do. But in listening to “Feel.Love.Thinking.Of.” by Canadian dream pop band, Faunts, I realized that had all their synth lines been contained within parts of “Isn’t Anything” I’d never have listened to the whole album through — just fast forwarded to these instantly charming bits without giving the shyer MBV stuff a chance.
