Leak of the Week 6: Fennesz – Black Sea by Tuan Le

There aren’t many upcoming album releases, so the leaks are slow too.  I haven’t come across any high profile leaks, but Fennesz’s Black Sea is worth mentioning.  Maybe a bit obscure, but you should check them out.  If this is your first introduction to Fennesz, Black Sea is a good start, but Endless Summer is a must.  It’s one of the best electronic noise albums ever.

Coming from a formal music background, Fennesz applies music theory to guitar-induced noise.  Black Sea is loaded with layers of complex sounds and melodies all weaved together electronically.  Standout tracks include “Grey Scale” and “Vacuum.”

For fans of electronic/noise/shoegaze/ambient.

Black Sea is due legally through Touch on December 9, 2008.
