Nick Rivera : Zamalek [LBN023]

Zamalek is an island in Cairo in the middle of the Nile. But also a neighbourhood, something in between. This album is about the sky you can’t see from this island and the things that swim in it. Zamalek is a warm cuddle from your trusted friend, a fist in the nape from your best enemy.”

Giò Fattoruso – Prestami Dio [VVV014]

“The latest addition to the roster of ViVeriVive is Giò Fattoruso, a talented singer-songwriter from Bergamo who makes his debut as a soloist with this precious EP, after a militancy in the band La Bottega Del Ciarpame (and many concerts in the Lombardy area).

Prestami Dio reveals in less than twenty minutes a poetic but authentic lyricism, and a folk always focused on embracing guitar-chords that sometimes get carried away by breezes of violins: a compositional formula firmly anchored in the tradition of songwriting yet push towards contemporary sounds.”
