Fenn O'Berg - The Return of Fenn O'Berg

Fenn O'Berg - The Return of Fenn O'Berg

Laptop music before it was cool. These guys are responsible for creating the foundation of what is contemporary improvisational computer music. Sure there are those that came before, but they were the first to popularize this new wave of experimental, electronic music that is focused primarily on a live setting. This was recently remastered with their first album, so I've included that for context as well, but The Return is filled to the brim with about everything you could ask for in an album of this sort, shimmering guitars, noise, subtle beats, and absolutely gorgeous arrangements. O'Rourke, Rehberg, and Fennesz all bring incredibly different components to the table, and this is undoubtedly the source of the album's success.
