Listen to Stromboli’s Drag Phase

1500strombolivolumeunostromboli2web

We already told you that Stromboli is back with Volume Uno on Feb 10th. Listen to opening track Drag Phase via Inverted Audio.

Nice words: “… tape-saturated canvas of anxiogenic ambiences, shadow-clad synth psychedelia and grainy-textured layers, the Bologna-based artist takes you on for a borderline, hallucinogenic trip across semi-abstract cityscapes and barren post industrial terrains as seen through an insecure, paranoid-like perspective… Our pick – the album’s opener ‘Drag Phase‘, shows the most stripped-back facet of a black-hearted monolithic whole slowly disintegrating in thick carbonic fumes and pitch-dark sooty peels. Winter depression is almost gone. Almost.”

Preview J.H. Guraj’s debut over at The Hum

coverJHGURAJ1500jhguraj1500

Finally able to share this tape that’s coming out in a few weeks. It’s J.H. Guraj‘s debut Underrated Glances At The Edge Of Town. It’s a magical affair and The Hum describes it perfectly, head over to their blog to listen to the first two tracks.

Guraj’s playing took me by surprise. A vision of the past instantly appears – but one shattered, scrambled, and reassembled before your ears. This isn’t appropriation or pastiche. He does what few players can – accepts the inevitable, and builds a Frankenstein out of the condition from which it grows. This is the Post-Modern guitar.

Pre-order this tape now and read everything about it HERE.

Pale Fear video for His Clancyness

His Clancyness: Pale Fear directed by the band’s own Giulia Mazza is up on TinyMixTapes.

“Pale Fear” has a downward tumbling guitar melody paired with plodding drums and plaintive vocals delivering soul searching lyrics, yearning for personal transformation in order to survive modern city life, all of which is uplifted by a revolutionary hook with fuzz-blast guitar and dreamily droning synth. The theme is underscored by Giulia Mazza’s video, as a veiled figure rambles and flails about a city over the course of a day, turning into a Lost Boys extra as the daylight fades at the song’s bridge

 

Whitney K’s “Ode To The Old Ways”

Check out Whitney K‘s video for Ode To The Old Ways. TinyMixTapes says

“Ode to the Old Ways” is a perfect representation of his rambling spirit. Though the whole album was recorded on a four-track called “Moth Insurance” at his old house on Kingsway, the song sounds bigger than it is, with his honest vocals and lysergic guitar at the core of flirtations with warm rolling bass, simple drums, harmonica, whistling, and feminine backing vocals that infinitely expand his universe. Directed by the flamboyant Johnny de Courcy, showing road trip footage and nostalgic scenes from the greater Vancouver area alongside headshots and band performances warped by general tape-worn distortion and ancient VHS effects reminiscent of Bill Baird, the video is the perfect accompaniment.

 

Hallelujah! on Noisey France

Noisey France says “Hallelujah! et Holiday Inn remettent l’Italie sur la carte du punk rock à grands coups de pompes”. We could not agree more. Now get it in your house.
