Most famed for his work as Shuttle358 on 12k, Dan Abrams makes a most welcome return to the forefront of pastoral electronica under his Fenton moniker. Here there’s a little less emphasis on sonic experimentation and instead his guitar sees prominent usage. The production is exceptionally lovely and well conceived, as you’d expect from one of the microsound genre’s most esteemed contributors, but the guitar parts themselves are more like subtle gestures than fully developed musical ideas in their own right.

Bitcriushed arpeggios run warmly through ‘Brother Blueberry’ and ‘Once Upon A Forest’, while elsewhere sustained tones clash and fold into one another, as on ‘Neon Giraffe’ and opener ‘Bunny’. It’s all incredibly luscious despite sounding intensely digitised from start to finish.

Being brutal, the post-Fennesz sound designs and sketched musical ideas laid out over the course of this record represent nothing new, and really this ‘guitar vs. laptop’ excursion could have been made at any time in the past five years. That said, Abrams could make just about any musical enterprise sound essential by merit of his skills as an electronic musician, and the beguiling auditory tapestry of Pup serves as proof of that.

On a minimal-ambient note here goes an album you seriously do not want to miss out on. I’ve been meaning to post this for a while now as it showed on [ TSSF ] for some time, but been busy all the time as usual I guess but hey better be late than never right? Exceptional discovery and for an album that’s been out for seven years, I must say I AM IMPRESSED. Check it out guys.
