Fanno Creek at Valentines 2.5

Fanno Creek at Valentines 2.5

Looking for the next addition to your music library? Fanno Creek has it covered. Their latest release, Monuments, is a treasure trove of melodic material. The band seems to have found the right ingredients from a variety of genres which produce a tasty sound, indeed. Songs like “Trilithon” are wonderfully simple in content and yet in that simplicity elegant and sweet, but don’t get too settled in, there is more to Fanno Creek than just that. “Page” provides the sour contrast to the sweet songs. It showcases their versatility by incorporating eerie, sweeping sounds that contrast with the more consonant sounds. The sweet & sour combination shows a conscious effort to produce not just good songs but a great album. One of my personal favorites from Monuments is “Bones”. “It has strong late 60’s/early 70’s, almost psychedelic quality to it that make this track very cool. The attention given to each song is evident and the result is a kick ass album. - Cory Huennekens
