Fadi Tabbal – Museum of Disappearing Buildings [LP to be re-released October 2017] 

Fadi Tabbal, guitarist with Lebanese alternative rock bands The Incompetents and The Bunny Tylers among many others, self-released his second solo album, “Museum of Disappearing Buildings”, in November 2015.

This album continues further the work of sound exploration through guitar treatments, which began with “On the Rooftop Looking Up” in 2013. While the young guitarist’s first album featured a finely-devised interaction of ambient soundscapes and John Fahey-inspired finger-picking acoustic meanderings, this second solo outing adopts a different approach: it relies on an interplay of ambient guitar drones and grainy electronics, which recalls to a degree the work of early Krautrock vanguard artists from the 1970’s, the leftfield exploration of British electro-acoustic practitioners from the mid-1970’s, as well as the radical works of American minimalist composers from the 1960’s.

Similarly to his first outing, Tabbal preferred a radical and direct approach to composition and recording, opting for the intimacy and self-reflection of home recordings, rather than the traditional environment of a recording studio. At the heart of the album, resides one unifying concept, which finds its way into the resulting musical bed: the sketches and impossible structures and urban configurations of Russian paper architects Brodsky and Utkin.

The album will be re-released in October 2017 in a limited vinyl edition of 300 copies, the result of a collaboration between Lebanese label Ruptured and Portland-based indie label Beacon Sound.

Back in October 2014, the Ruptured music label released its first vinyl record, Issrar, by Lebanese electronic artist radiokvm.

A track from this LP is featured in this month’s Wire Tapper #38 exclusive promotional CD, given away with the August issue of UK magazine The Wire.

As with previous volumes this CD, which has been compiled by Shane Woolman, Andy Tait and Katie Gibbons, is packaged in a heavy-duty card sleeve designed by The Wire‘s art director Ben Weaver, and contains a range of new, rare or exclusive tracks from across the spectrum, of the kind of underground/outsider musics covered in The Wire.

We are proud!

Issrar was also featured by The Wire on NTS Radio:
