“Small Town Mysteries is a tough one. Conceived during a five hour long spontaneous jam session with a let-it-all-out approach it both harkens back to the artists’ punk-rock upbringing and follows the course set by the first album. The voice is back and the crumpled paper poetry is back but this time with a bunch of fellow Karelian musicians to bounce off of. The result — four songs, oscillating from a gentle whisper to a desperate outcry, disjointed, reflection-fueled but unmistakably notforme!”
“Five years after ‘Seven Mirrors’, Inner is the new album by Nunun (Cesare Discepoli: guitar, effects; Massimo Discepoli: drums). Composed and recorded between 2014 and 2016, this is the duo’s more introspective album, resulting from the need of a musical research by the two musicians, but at the same time always crossing the path of experimentation and improvisation present in previous discs.”
“Lorelei is the debut album from duo Feminine (Giampiero Riggio and Francesco Cipriano).
A wave manifesto against the deeply rooted reverence for the logic of genres.
Lorelei develops on two complementary levels: one archaic and passionate,
troubled by the many contradictions of a land like Sicily and the other,
accurate and bewitching, is a prelude to teutonic Stuttgart.
A countless number of bytes which they shared and exchanged remotely.
This work is romantic and brave at the same time, constantly immersed into a very deep atmosphere, never trite,
fooled by the certainty that there is no dream which cannot be described.”
“The seven multilayered pieces presented here are hybrids meticulously built up of acoustic and electronic elements both composed and improvised. Synthesizing a complex relationship of lyricism and abstraction, acoustic double bass and drums define melodic and rhythmic figures against an ambient field constructed of electronic textures. The emergent sound is a weave of modallyinflected melodies floating over propulsive, intricate rhythms and harmonic blocks carved out of electronic matter.”
“Things Left Unsaid is not only the testimony of a precise moment, but rather the result of a long research, composition and improvisation done by the band: there’s a common area where musical elements from diametrically opposed musical worlds such as jazz and contemporary music, rock and blues coexist without forgetting the melodic vocation in each composition.
Samurau: the band (Michele Sanna – guitars; Matteo Muntoni â el.bass; Alessandro Garau- drums) after a long period of mutual courtship and knowledge among the members, was officially founded in 2014: the aim is to satisfy the need to blend in total freedom, sounds, music, different styles through their own compositions.”
