Tu Fawning - A Monument (2012)

Tu Fawning return this May with their sophomore release titled "A Monument". The album was recorded at Tiny Telephone in San Francisco and at Type Foundry in Portland. Some additional recording took place at Menomena's Justin Harris' house. The album was mixed by Jeff Saltzmann and eventually finished off by Mastering Pope Howie Weinberg at his Los Angeles studios. Above and beyond the usual guitar, bass, keys, drums, the record feautures instrumentation such as a ragini, a tuned down marching band drum, old 80's synths, actually lots of synths, those samples of South American chants turned into chords. Not to mention the degenerated Four Track recorders, dying guitar pedals, but most importantly: ''turning your back to the microphone and yelling...''.
