Instrumentals we love, part seventeen: A ragged charm

“Lennitz” by Magnetfisch | I’ve been busy on the day job front for three weeks, so I have amassed a bit of a backlog on the recommendations front. Let’s begin with another band from Switzerland – Bern, specifically – who specialize, as they put it, in the stuff “between synth pop and new wave”. But this song from Magnetfisch has this charming quality despite the ragged 80s sound. And no need for lyrics, too: their EP, Lieder Maximo, available on iTunes, is made entirely of instrumentals, all with a pop sensibility that shouldn’t fit, but does. The band’s main synth guy, Timothée, sent this over, and also, thankfully understood that things can get really busy sometimes; he, after all, has kids, as well as their bassist Rolf. (Guitarist Patrick rounds off the band.) So, yeah, brownie points. You know where the charm comes from. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
