Kind of Like: DevotchKa, Broken Social Scene, Anathallo
Genres: Experimental, Electronica, Indie, Folk
On his last.fm, the writer claims that Sindri Már Sigfússon (Sin Fang) is "the new king of lo-fi layered lushness". His music is certainly lush and layered, from howling ambience to subtle psychedelic noises. However, this is hardly lo-fi. There is no fuzziness about it. All of the layers are independent and pristine sounding, not muddled all together which is characteristic of lo-fi. Great production is not something to gripe about, just an observation.
