Francesca Naibo - Namatoulee [Aut Records 065]

To be released via Berlin's Aut Records-label on June 15th, 2k20 is "Namatoulee", the new full length album outing brought to life by Francesca Naibo. With fourteen tracks created on a foundation of guitar, objects and multiple effects Naibo is going down a route of intimate, somewhat haunted and desolate Ambient / DarkAmbient from the very first minute of the opening piece "Mae Lougon" onwards, pairing cold, outerworldy atmospheres with her unique take on experimental manipulation of her instrument, provides a way of twisting and reprocessing sounds in "Toundaleda" reminiscent of very early electronic music production and sound research in dedicated, oftentimes tape reel-based, laboratories whilst other pieces like "Fadadada" or "Lameda Lemeda" dabble with most intimate, naturalist Desert Post-PostRock, "Foush" explores fever'ish, scraping and multi-layered eruptions bordering elements of Noize, "Teing Dol" gets deep into twangy off-kilter harmonic interplay and "Fron-Ne" presents both raw and brooding low frequency attacks as well as Contemporary Classical elements when the guitar strings are seemingly treated tenderly with a bow just to name a few. Beautifully varied, this. Check.
