New Irish Pub Fenn O’Berg Opens in East Village… Wait a Second, That’s Not a Pub…That’s a Fennesz, Jim O’Rourke, and Peter Rehberg Collaboration!

The other day in the East Village, Christian Fennesz, Jim O’Rourke, and Peter Rehberg were sitting in a new Irish pub when they realized that it had been eight whole years since their last collaboration (using the moniker Fenn O’Berg) had been released. They also realized that their previous two albums were just live edits and that they’ve never released a proper studio album together.

The guys were practically speechless and decided that this was a major deficit for the musical world-at-large and, after finishing their corned-beef sandwiches, agreed that they would remedy the situation and record a new album together that they would release on vinyl and CD through Editions Mego on March 2. They also decided that the new record would be called In Stereo, and that they would add to the “expected digital madness and sampling” by including guitar, piano, bass, and percussion.

Here is the tracklist that the boys decided on and, yes, the “parts” are purposely jumbled around:

In Stereo:

01. Part III
02. Part IV
03. Part V
04. Part I
05. Part VII
06. Part VI
07. Part II *
