Boomkat Product Review:
Berlin-based cineastes, bookworms and musicians Dice Miller and Enir Da aka Fith cross paths with Ran$om Note’s Outer Reaches sublabel in a strong follow-up to their 2016 LP for Berlin/Salford intermedia co-op, Wanda
Last heard on the ‘Saints of Cinema’ CD in ’17 with Ono’s Michael Holland, Dice Miller is a commanding presence under the spotlight of ‘Swamp’, channelling the clipped post-punk enunciation of Anne Clarke or Angela Conway in crisply dreamy style over efficiently psychedelic, minimal production by Enir Da, landing somewhere between Tolouse Low Trax/Toresch/Decha, the ‘Decoder’ soundtrack, and Dome.
“The project, currently comprised of members Dice Miller, Enir Da, Rachel Margetts, ChrIs Lmx, and Arnaud Mathé gesture towards notions of the literary salon, expanded cinema happenings, and the ancient traditions of Greek oratory and religious sermons. With Swamp, FITH become a refined force on a record where all their compelling pluralities and attributes are honed and augmented; everything dilated to delirium.”
