BSWC One-a-Day: French Teen Idol - The Fleeting Beauty of a Butterfly

O.K. Let's stay with the Italian theme for a post or two. There is a new release from French Teen Idol. Huh?

That's right.

FTI is a project of Roman artist, Andrea Di Carlo. FTI has released two collections including the latest, Enlightened False Consciousness [LostChildren023].

The sound is sort of a atmospheric, post-rock combo that is hard to pin down and I think that is exactly what FTI is trying to accomplish.
"Melancholic piano patterns, dreamy atmospheres, vocal samples and striking instrumental crescendos, some of the ingredients of French Teen Idol's debut album, are sill there, enriched by the continuous search for new musical solutions, including a more classical "song-structure" approach in some tracks."
This was released on Lost Children. The previous FTI release was on the Nishi netlabel. You can hear an interview with FTI on the excellent Netwaves broadcast to podcast from Belgium.
