On his third outing for the Secretly Canadian label, Dave Fischoff moves further away from the delicate, lo-fi indie-rock of his debut (WINSTON PARK), venturing far into sample-driven electronica territory. The result is a densely layered album that often recalls likeminded artist Caribou in its balance of near-whispered vocals, pop melody, and adventurous glitch-hop arrangements, as exemplified by the synth-heavy "Landscape Skin" and the chiming "Ghost of an Afternoon.

It’s been five years since Dave Fischoff released his last album as he landed a job at the Chicago Public Library, but, brother, was it worth the wait! Recorded in his basement apartment, The Crawl is more than just the cut and pasting of a lonely singer, songwriter. Despite the fact that he is a decent enough vocalist, Fischoff’s standout tracks from The Crawl are his instrumentals. In a Lightless Carriage is the first of these, a short and charming piece with church bells that stay with you for days afterward. Fischoff’s vocal delivery can be compared with fellow indie superhero, Sufjan Stevens.
Dave Fischoff is an electronica sampler-based musician from Chicago. He literally has browsed through the city's central library's collection of samples for the creation of his music. He does the vocals on his own though. Alone in a near downtown basement apartment (sometimes in his bedroom closet), his mind took a very long trip, delving into the under-explored territory where electronic music, hip hop, and orchestral pop meet.
