Endless Summer (Fennesz, 2001)

Saying Christian Fennesz is deconstructing Brian Wilson makes what he’s doing come off as egghead and square but he does boil the Beach Boys’ teenage symphonies down to the utopian sense of wonder that gave them wings, albeit with more love than inquiry in his heart. Fractured, diffuse and yet often lovely as it sounds only means the Austrian laptop guitarist’s musical forebrain can’t process what’s memory and what’s wishful thinking, blurring instead whatever line tentatively separates both. Beautifully, at that.
