Fadi Tabbal 'How's Annie'
Limited edition of 250 copies.
Third solo album from Fadi Tabbal, lead guitarist with Lebanese psychedelic rock band The Incompetents and various others. This album continues further the work of sound exploration through guitar treatments, which began with “On the Rooftop Looking Up” (2013) - a finely-devised interaction of ambient soundscapes with John Fahey-inspired acoustic meanderings - and developed further on 2015’s “Museum of Disappearing Buildings” - an interplay of ambient guitar drones and grainy electronics.
For his third album, Tabbal continues further his exploration of electronics, beats and synthetic sounds through his guitar. The single, 32-minute track brings to mind the early work of sonic mavericks Ben Frost, Tim Hecker and Daniel Lopatin. Recorded live in one take without any cuts or overdubs.
