Adam Fothergill 'Lonely Fences'
Published Mar 18, 2014Adam Fothergill used to sling spiky bass riffs for peppy Vancouver pop-punks B-Lines, but the guy's seeking out softer textures on his new solo drone release, Lonely Fences.
Opting out of blitzed hardcore rhythms, Fothergill sets up songs like "1" with taciturn guitar tones, presented as if drifting slowly back to the forefront from a half-remembered daydream. Rosier drones run sublime on "Afterglow" and "The Dirge," while the ambient measures and sinisterly slapped bass on "Black Walls" threaten to haunt us forever from the cavernous prisons of our minds.
