Fenster makes de-constructed pop music. Their lyrics are often carefully constructed dream narratives, finding inspiration in the world of ghosts, graveyards. trains, religious imagery, and broken machinery. In their music, they build songs around errors, blending melodic chords with broken beats or minimal percussion. Their instruments range from banjo to synth to inanimate objects, using slamming doors and city soundscapes. source
Fenster is signed to Morr Music, which is one of my favorite labels and they are one of my picks for SXSW 2012. Check back every Monday for a new band to check out at the next SXSW.
