Tu Fawning, A Monument Album Review


From a tentative, early, but not entirely confident, first dip of a toe into the water with an EP in 2008 through to the more meaningful collaborative 'side project' that resulted in a startling surprise gem of an album in 'Hearts On Hold' in 2010, Tu Fawning have now become a fully functioning, bone-fide, all singing, all dancing, actual, proper band. Woo Hoo! They, but especially us, should be very happy about that. Tu Fawning just keep getting better and better. 'Hearts On Hold' was very good and pitched in as a late consideration for one of the best debut album releases of 2010. In 'Apples And Oranges' alone it contained a song of rare, delicate and highly original beauty.

Tu Fawning, Hearts On Hold Album Review


Portland Oregon's credibility as a musical hotbed of emerging talents is further enhanced by the latest offering from the North-West territories. Tu Fawning may be made up of four of the regions most respected individual musicians but this album, Hearts On Hold, marks their collaborative debut. With their influences cited as Gamelan music, The Boswell Sisters, Big Band Jazz, Jay Z and Hawaiian and with a largely folk pedigree behind them you'd probably be a little cautious of the resultant mix. Fear not, Joe Haege, Corrina Repp, Tousaint Perrault and Liza Rietz (Having been tempted out of semi musical retirement from her job as a Boutique Fashion Designer) have combined their not inconsiderable skills to produce an album of slightly twisted dark beauty. Rietz has said of the project that they are....'creating the sound of a rock band from an entirely fresh angle'. She is not wrong.
