Branches is a sonic manifesto for The Fawn’s anti-stylistic creation process. 4 songs in 4 days, 1 place, 17 artists coming and going. Take a solid trunk of musicians bound by the same deep roots and you can expect the branches to grow by themselves. What really maters is who was there that day and what tools or toys they brought – to shape the sounds, to make it a human record. This fluid and logical result is no less than the sum of everyone’s addition to the basic ideas that Nathan Baumann put on the table. Wanna talk about influences ? Think of a pop music remake of Miles Davis Bitches Brew ; whatever the rules were, what remains in the end of such a hazardous experience is just The Fawn and its talented people creating good music together.
