Uncle Fritz

Field Reports (Pet Piranha)


There’s a terminally bleak air to Dundee painter and musician Fraser Stewart’s quiet-time aside from Alamos and Perineum metal outlets. With a penchant for tuneless whistling and testing, syntax-free deep vocals, Fritz undermines the beautiful melancholy of his oft-inspired melodies, dextrous guitar work and sparing atmospherics. It certainly makes for a morose and often chilling outcome, dazzling and infuriating in equal measure. Lyrically we are treated to tortured ramblings on a myriad of dark concerns, from not fitting in at parties to attention-seeking shotgun fantasies, all tailor made for the miserablist’s self-harm soundtrack.
