Andi Teichmann Fades

Techno and indie rock rarely make compatible bedfellows, but with Fades, Andi Teichmann attempts to foster seduction between the genres, and occasionally succeeds. "Myschkin" makes a great initial impression with warped harpsichord drones, a bravura New Order bassline and poignant pianso atop a brawny midtempo techno rhythm. As Fades progresses, kohl-eyed ballads with pensively strummed acoustic guitar and wispy male vocals vie for dominance with elegant 4/4 bangers full of dramatic swerves and abrasive textures, splitting the difference between Alter Ego and Superpitcher. Sure it‘s schizo, but Teichmann‘s stab at this unlikely union often yields thrilling results.
