Title: Waterboarding
Format: CD
Label: Unverified Records
Rated: *****
Hmmmm, my first exposure to Canadian weirdos Fossils and I must admit it's not really a memorable one. Seven tracks, 31 minutes of mostly outdoor recordings drenched in tape hiss. Some screech here, some loose string plucking there. If I'm not mistaken, there's also some dog barking, looped or collaged, which I've found enjoyable (barks on tape are always a must). But seriously, being a country guy, why would I ever want to listen to this again. This is a lo-fi aesthetic that I just don't get.
