Mark Iosifescu is admittedly restless. Since he began recording Insaniac in a Living Hell, his first full-length record as Farewell My Concubine, he has moved three times, applied to graduate school, studied Chinese, studied German, and fled whenever possible while writing songs about cars and movement. This spring, he'll be on the move once again as he tours with Father Finger.
That feeling of intransigence makes sense when considering his compelling synth music. It's mesmerizing and delicately layered, varying from haunted pop songs, strictly choral tracks and aching ballads that could have worked on the Twin Peaks soundtrack.
