One lazy journey, impossibly soft, amniotic. Clouds lay low stroking the earth and flaming fires dancing a merry-go-round.
Titus Andronicus – A productive cough. I love them deeply, and when you love someone, you tend to be biased. So I breathe and try to be unbiased: I only discovered them recently, thanks to the single from this album. To be fair, this is not their best album to date, though they’re still awesome. Each song is a pub anthem played with the same alcoholic clearness typical of those who know what their life’s priorities are. Having said that, if you’re planning a romantic evening and foreseeable hanky-panky, this would be worse than Carnivore, Jack Daniels and pizza.
Moby – Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt. His entire career is a rollercoaster of ups and downs and this latest collection is proof of it. However, when he gets it right, he’s pure class.
Deathbell – with the beyond. Most traditional Doom, a tide as slow as a funeral procession in which Lauren Gaynor, the singer, sings her mass.
Dead Meadow – The nothing they need. Eerie psychedelia with a lazy vibe, rich of pastel colours, fuzz and flares.
Besvarjelsen – Vallmo. Imagine them singing at dawn, in a natural setting, slow beats yet light. The European counterpart of Ruby The Hatchet. Cool.
The Blackwater Fever – Delusions. Tra il rock vintage ed il soul. Belle canzoni che è un piacere ascoltare in ogni situazione. Between vintage rock and soul. Great songs to play in any environment.
Caroline Says – No Fool like an old fool. Delicate and intriguing, enchanting like a woman to discover date after date.
The Clan – Here to Stay. Jolliness suitable for a tourist pub, a party record ideal if you like to hang out in a familiar neighbourhood.
Hoboken Division – The Mesmerizing Mix Up of the diligent John Henry. This was released a few months ago, rough blues to listen to speeding as fast as you can, possibly on a motorbike.
Los3Saltos – Risacca. Another great mix of cumbia, murga and combat rock. They will perform and attend the 4 days of our BlissBeat Festival, for a live gig on july 19th and to host some murga music workshops.
Lucy Dacus – Historian. Stripped off, whispered songs that are seriously remarkable. Elegant and easy at the same time.
Mount Eerie – Now Only. If you love Sun Kil Moon/Mark Kozelek with an even greatermalaise, getting rather close to the more recent Sufjan Stevens.
Roxy Lavish & The Suicide Cult – Doom & Gloom from the clown cave tomb. They come from Australia and play a sort of disrespectful psychedelic garage rock. Live at Cascina Bellaria on June 16th. Oh yeah.
