Fred – Stereoscope

It may not reach the heights of their last album ‘Go God Go’ but Fred’s newbie ‘Leaving My Empire’ is still pickled with greatness. This is the Cork band’s 4th album yet they remain decidedly under the radar at home, not to mention overseas (though they have made some inroads in Canada). The one thing that always impresses about their music is how epic it appears, the production is always tight but it is the sweeping dynamics that recall greats, of a similar ilk, like the Rest. ‘Stereoscope’ is just heartbreaking, while at the same time boasting a euphoric intensity. Joseph O’Leary adds a classic indie vocal and all around him his bandmates conjure great sonic structures. It would blow you away if its weren’t for the equally powerful south easterly’s. KD
