Listen: FAX's Motion EP [MEX]

It’s an album and it’s digital. It’s a digital album. Simple, right? Not really. Well, maybe a little. Scratch that: let’s start over. Motion EP is a digital album by FAX. It’s smooth and solid. The simplicity of its four songs is inviting. It starts strong with “Cascade,” possibly the best track, followed by “X,” a song that carries a bit more intensity.

Motion EP is not too heavy on electronic experimentations, but what it lacks in audacity it makes up for in rhythm, as well as a pinch of post-rock melancholia that colors the entire album, but is especially felt during the song “Little Boy.”

It was recorded in Mexicali and released by Static Records, a music label that has promised to also release books by the late Tijuana writer Rafa Saavedra, a friend I can only wish I had gotten to know better.
