Fontanelle Vitamin F on Limited Edition LP
During the gap of nearly 10 years since their last release, Fontanelle
has been trying to transport themselves back in time to 1973 into Patrick Gleeson’s Different Fur Trading Company studio. With the help of Randall Dunn’s
expertise (Sunn O))), Black Mountain, Wolves in the Throne Room), it sounds like they made it!
Rex Ritter’s tour of duty with Sunn O))) during Fontanelle’s
hiatus seems to have irreparably changed his DNA, as well as the bands. Adding an amazing array of horn players (many heard on Sunn O)))s; Monoliths & Dimensions
has conjured a burly fusion jazz sound that has been dubbed, “White Magus.”
Gentry Densley (Eagle Twin), Steve Moore (Earth, Sunn O)))), Hans Teuber, Eric Walton (Skerik), Jef Brown (Jackie-O MF) and Dave Carter are all featured on Vitamin F
. The band, based in Portland OR, is comprised of Andy Brown (Jessamine), Rex Ritter (Jessamine, Sunn O)))), Paul Dickow (Strategy), Brian Foote, Nudge, Leech), Mat Morgan and Borg Norum. Vinyl version of this greasy-groovy masterpiece of fuzzed out funk from Southern Lord
is limited to a one time pressing of 1,000.
