If Pete Frame drew a family tree of this experimental band, founded in 1971 in Germany, he’d face a challenge. The newest release comes with a respectable pedigree, including founders Jean-Hervé Péron on bass and Zappi Diermaier on drums, joined by Gallon Drunk guitarist James Johnston and Geraldine Swayne. The original band, which lasted officially until 1975, reformed in the early 1990s.
Faust's core duo of bassist Jean-Hervé Péron and drummer Zappi Diermaier are joined here by Geraldine Swayne and Gallon Drunk frontman James Johnstone, both wrestling sounds from a variety of stringed and keyed devices. By contrast, "Herbststimmung" offers a glimpse of Faust's more melodic side, the poignant cyclical shimmer of some stringed device being gradually refracted into ragged tatters. There's plenty of typically brutalist avant-rock riffing in tracks like "Dampfauslass 1 & 2", while Swayne's occasional vocal adds an unexpected sultry touch to some tracks. It's their most cohesive album in some time. DOWNLOAD THIS Herbststimmung; La Sole Dorée 2; Tell the Bitch to Go Home. We’ll tell you what’s true.
