FAUSTO MAIJSTRAL
S/T LP
15
La Station Radar 38 / FR / 2014
Formed in 2010 in Berlin (Germany), Fausto Maijstral are Will Gresson and DuChamp, a drone duo based in Berlin and London. The record opens with "Lucky 15", a long track with repetitive ambiant tones & synth drones. With the song "naval reserve" and then "kensingston C.A" (instrumental) the duo set their drone guitars and synths into a darker atmosphere with more abrasive sounds and percussion. Epitaphium, the final track, sounds like a peaceful haunting song, ending with a field recording of a muezzin from the band’s short tour of Turkey in Istanbul amidst various sounds from the city.
