Faraquet – The View From This Tower

29 April 2009

Today I read some great news; Dischord are reissuing Faraquet’s ‘The View From This Tower‘ on vinyl later on in the year! I’ve been looking for the lp for some years now, and was beggining to accept that it was out of print and unavailable. 

It’s angular post-punk from 2000 with guitars, horns, interesting percussion, good time signatures and ambitious structure, without being wanky. It sounds like Dischord grown up with some world music influences, but in a good way.

Chad Molter and Devin Ocampo from Faraquet went on to form Medications, who are a bit similar but not nearly as good.

    But Dischord still haven’t re-issued it and there’s no news about it.

    Now Dischord are showing a “March 2010” release date.
