Tag Archives: lo-fi

Lo-fi, an abbreviation for “low fidelity,” describes a recording process that contains technical flaws such as distortion, hum, noise, or limited frequency response. It is used in contrast to the audiophile term “high fidelity” or “hi-fi,” which refers to stereo equipment that accurately reproduces music without distortion, unwanted frequencies, or resonance. Lo-fi may be intentional due to limitations in analog recording or processing techniques, or purposely avoided for aesthetic reasons. (Wikipedia)

The use of the keyword “lo-fi” on REDEFINE will encompass its role in music, film, and multimedia.

Little Girls – Concepts Album Review

Sure, Canada gave the world Broken Social Scene, but analogously speaking, Canada may be to the crowd of Crystal Castles fans what the last decade of Sub Pop releases is to modern hipsterdom. Although both seemed to harbor the potential to redefine this generation of the disillusioned hoping to reclaim a shred of cultural dignity,...Read...

Firekites – The Bowery Album Review

In short, they make the kind of music to get you through a Sunday afternoon, but without the risk of getting the words stuck in your head. Through woozy, instrument-driven pop, their debut album, The...Read...

Aluminum Babe – 17 Album Review

Superficially, Aluminum Babe seems to be a DIY-driven, fierce frontwoman-powered electro outfit making music suitable for garages and house parties. In theory, they seem to be the type of band that has a well-honed demographic and probably fills a solid niche. In reality, they’re all over the electro map, and their extremely long sixteen-track album,...Read...

Mount Eerie – Wind’s Poem Album Review

Phil Elverum of ex-Microphone’s fame is one of those artists who has garnered enough legitimate respect throughout his music-making career that when he says something rather off the wall — such as how the decidedly not-black metal whatsoever project of Mount Eerie is going to make a black metal album — well, you just have...Read...

Forks and Knives – Self-Titled Album Review

With their homemade press kit, Forks and Knives seem like a band with DIY roots right off the bat. But unlike many bands that throw together a press kit, write a personal note, and call that enough, Forks and Knives manage to come off as professional despite being hugely unconventional. Included in their package was...Read...

Phosphorescent – To Willie Album Review

Taking on a cover album by one of the biggest legends in country music is an impressive feat. Doing it tastefully is a whole other story. Matthew Houck, or Phosphorescent as he is more commonly known, is an accomplished musician in his own right, with several full-lengths under his belt, the most recent of which,...Read...
