Comment: maybe I am remembering wrong but the Frenchwoman Nathanaelle Hauguel is setting the pace to be even more experimental and electronic with any following issue. However, with her 28-year old age she has done much enough because it is hard task for someone to enumerate all her issues at Bandcamp. It is the privilege of an artist to be remembered for always and differentiate from the mob with her/his distinctive ideas. It is a striking listening because there are up different elements of contemporary indie music. Indeed, it is really up-to-date because this 8-notch issue could be divided into two sections. There is up the surging acid rock of Adelaide Crescent, there are up Stopthefellow II, and Off The Veins which are tickling minimal synth numbers. Feer is an expansion of the previous pieces coming to fruition with angelic pop chord progressions and a tight yet spherical synthesised layer. The first 7 compositions and the last one Saturn Returning, which comprises almost a half part of these 33 minutes. Of course, it does not mean that there can be no dividing line between the first pieces. Any of them is special with poignant moves and impetus and robs you yet the last one is a step into another world with those analogue-based (or analogue-alike) fabric of dusty keyboards and minimalistic rhythms being more similar to such artists as Oneohtrix Point Never, Emeralds, Steven Hauschildt, M Geddes Gengras, and Tim Hecker. In a word, Saturn Returning is a subtle minimalistic composition based on a cut-up chord progression, which might even remember for Penguin Cafè Orchestra and Daniel Figgis by its feeling and touch. In a nutshell, you shall have to make hard work to find out other such outstanding issues as it is from the year of 2016.
