Hear New Sound: Fasano's The Barn


Not being a New York City dweller and all, AwkwardSound isn’t entirely familiar with the ins and outs of the local music scene, but from a distance, the rebuilding of venerable Brooklyn establishment the Silent Barn seems like an important event for the area’s independent artists as both a venue and recording space. It’s fitting that the first release created within its walls come from BK experimental scene flag bearers Godmode Records, who today released The Barn, the cassette-friendly solo debut from ARMS bassist and LCD Soundsystem grand finale MSG show backing vocalist Fasano.
