Bengalfuel - Stehr


Bengalfuel is the audio/visual project of Joe LiTrenta and Lou DiBenedetto. They have released ambient electronic music on labels such as Hibernate Recordings, Resting Bell and Twice Removed Records as well as many self-released digital EP’s and albums, with accompanying music videos. Bengalfuel originated while Joe was in the process of moving out of a haunted house.

REVIEW

This duo committed a wonderful quartet of EPs a few years ago. Biographical info always seems to mention a haunted house, and there is certainly something spectral in the unfolding of “Clock Tower” and “Sea Fog.” Stehr is a chiaroscuro study, gentle washes of shadow obscuring clear vision, enticingly. Through that glass darkly one can only just make out shapes and sounds. “Lackawanna”—the old steel mill rusting away?

The album peaks, fittingly enough, on the eighteen-minute “Peaking,” where the foggy wisps seem to have found their way into the organ pipes at the abandoned seaman’s church as the waves crest and crash like cymbals. “Cremains” is the long calm, or perhaps dazed recovery, after the storm. And we float away like driftwood on “Angela Everywhere.” Expert ambient waft. Though demure, a most illuminating suite.
