Magic Touch

by Les Fontaines

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    LES FONTAINES are a Toronto "éléctro-psyche" synth pop duo. Their debut 8 track LP "MAGIC TOUCH" is out now on Toronto's paper+sound label. Released on 150-gramme vinyl (limited to 300 copies) and digital download with bonus tracks.

    Lorenz Peter (synths, noise, turntables) has played in numerous duos, including CORPUSSE and in bass synth duo PROCESSOR.

    Heiki Sillaste (synths, drum machines, effects) has previously made music as cult elektro industrialists DIGITAL POODLE and electronic maximalists KINDER ATOM.

    When it came to recording their debut album, Les Fontaines settled into the secluded confines of a sauna cabin in the great Canadian wilderness.

    Created solely utilizing a small collection of vintage synthesizers, drum machines and cheap & nasty effects units, MAGIC TOUCH was recorded live to tape with no computer trickery.

    Long sessions of electronic music improvisation influenced by a collection of cheap 80's hi-energy 12" singles, fueled by other-worldy substances and self-hypnosis instruction records came together on tracks such as BURN THE MATTRESS, GREY ZEBRA and MAKE IT POOLSIDE.

    Les Fontaines love their distorted hand-played synth leads, over-layed on top of choppy drum box funk rhythms, arpeggiated bass lines and swirling, walls of phased sound. Occasional metallic voices float in and out of the mix, commanding the listener to pay attention.

    Magic Touch is an uncompromising LP. Les Fontaines create their own
    singular sound of psychedelic, electronic, art synth punk-funk.
