La Fraicheur “Quicksand”
Following the release of Deena Abdelwahed’s album, French label InFiné is releasing queer feminist La Fraicheur’s follow up to her debut album of last year, Weltschmerz, a four-track EP of with a more distorted sound, at times cutting, at times slimy, often restless and howling.
The EP was produced both at her home studio and on tour, between Berlin, New York, and Mexico, and it balances two impulses: the desire to make music closer to the “no mercy / take no prisoners” biting sounds of her engaging powerful techno sets; the other the necessity of dealing with overwhelming feelings of anger, disgust, and frustration following her debut album release and newfound visibility confronting her with the invasive violence of misogynistic trolls.
Founded in 2006, other than fresh new artists like Deena Abdelwahed, InFiné has been supporting legendary artists such as Carl Craig, Murcof, Francesco Tristano, Apparat, and The Hacker.
Weltschmerz EP lands May 10, with “Quicksand” available to download via the WeTransfer button below, or here for EU readers due to temporary GDPR restrictions.
