Fernandez also been honing his own sound, however, and on his debut 7" (also the debut release of Chicago's Lake Paradise label), his tune "No Luck" is an instant winner, with a laid-back R&B shuffle and Wurlitzer paving the way for twisting instrumental passages and smart horn lines. It's just barely unplaceable, as if performed by some nonexistent studio wrecking crew during the Carter years.
Below, check out the video for the equally striking B-side, "Fading Out," a fascinating VHS-grit kaleidoscope of remoteness and isolation. Both video and song transmit the unacknowledged wistfulness linking '60s psychedelia and '70s/'80s pop.
