Boomkat Product Review:
At first look it might seem odd finding electric-Miles revivalists Fontanelle breaking their ten year silence with this new full-length on Southern Lord, but stand back a minute and check the facts. Band frontman Rex Ritter has been a long term touring partner of Sunn o))), and even with this in mind, ‘Vitamin F’ is a darker, weirder record than you might expect from the write-ups. The Portland band were always a peculiar concept, and when you have a collective that includes such local luminaries as Paul Dickow (Strategy), Steve Moore (Earth) and Jef Brown (Jackie O Motherf*cker) then you’re probably going to end up with a sound that defies easy categorisation. At times ‘Vitamin F’ has more in common with Deutch purveyors of Lynchian doom Bohren Und Der Club of Gore, and that’s no bad thing – while Fontanelle inject more than a fair share of grit, the mood throughout is ominous and vaguely disturbing, which should more than endear it to the paid up Southern Lord set. A confounding but deeply enjoyable record, ‘Vitamin F’ is jazz certainly, but it’s the kind of jazz that trades academia and pomp in for dirt, darkness and cheap liquor.
