Gorgeous first LP by German visual/sound artist, Fee K├╝rten, whose previous work has been available only via the German Bloody Hands label. Singing in English, accompanying herself on electronics, harmonica and strings, Fee creates oddball vistas of minimal pop aktion reminiscent of early Young Marble Giants, mixed with overtones lifted straight from the women of the Neue Deutsch Welle, and the slangy delivery of Omnivore. The results are a beautiful, throbbing Euro-American art-pop hybrid that functions in truly Internationalist terms. Some of it is akin to the nudest American avant-garage inventions around, other parts bleed like the waffle-filled air of the deepest Belgian underground. Just when you think you have Tellavision's modus operandi decoded, something different happens and you have to start re-evaluating your conclusions. Surreal, abstract, imagist, literal and utterly lovely, this is music for sitting around an internal campfire, crackling like crazy.
