Put the opening track "Mangsebung" on, then stay with the record until the closer "Shadows" rings out and you will be clear, sharp, and mildly messed up by the listening experience, because this is an extremely well-directed trip in mind-altering music. Fontän needs time to reach such heights. The width of range in influences has become somewhat of a trademark for Fontän. Magma, Pink Floyd, Bhutanese and Nordic folk music, Manuel Göttsching and Ashra, Robert Fripp and King Crimson, Steve Reich, Philip Glass, Talking Heads, DJ Shadow, Brian Eno, and Boards Of Canada, are some of the artists that have made a mark on the psychedelic duo. One of the main differences though between Fontän and other bands with a similar set of influences is that many cannot transform those musical traditions into timeless and boundless songs like those in Fontän's catalog.
