*BOTH FMTS NOW SHIPPING* Drawing the connections between Wendy Eisenberg’s releases feels
like undertaking a wide-ranging investigation. Albums of wildly
inventive guitar, tempo-shifting avant rock and curiously leftfield
pop fit together as offerings of Eisenberg’s curious mind. On Auto,
their most innovative and inner-reaching album yet, Eisenberg
explores emotional, subjective truth, and how it interacts with an
objectivity no person alone can grasp. Inspired by the solo work of
Mark Hollis (Talk Talk) and David Sylvian’s Blemish, with playing
skills that have already seen them climbing Best Guitarist lists and an
unvarnished vocal immediacy, Wendy Eisenberg has created an album
of subtle display that resonates with maximal impact.
Auto has multiple meanings. First, automobile: “A lot of these songs
were written about and mentally take place when I’m in the car on
my way to gigs,“ says Eisenberg. Immediate melodies came to them
on these trips, to which they’d later add complex guitar parts. And
automata: “I make myself into a machine, which is why everything
that’s played is precise.” Finally, they frame their work in the literary
technique of auto-fiction, “the semi-fictionalized presentation of the
self in a narrative form of growth,” as Eisenberg sees it.
The album served as a means toward working through emotional
conflicts from adolescent trauma and PTSD, and dissects the
dissolution and conflict that led towards the breakup of their former
band. With much of it written while its events played out, Auto faces
the grief of losing what one thinks is their future while experiencing
a dramatic reshaping of their past; it delves openly into the limited
nature of one person’s narrative.
After making a few efforts to record Auto, Eisenberg ultimately
chose to collaborate with childhood friend Nick Zanca, who
contributes electronic elements and production. Mirroring the personal
and organic offered by Eisenberg, synthetic sounds form a kind of
boundary or context for everything. They “sound like commentary on
songs that were written from an organic or subjective perspective,”
says Eisenberg. Their place on the album is integral for Eisenberg’s
goal “to outweigh the subjectivity of normal singer-songwriter
guitar songs with the objectivity of electronic sound.”
