Krano – Requiescat In Plavem

Krano Requiescat In Plavem

Very happy to finally announce a project we’ve been working on for over a year, Krano‘s debut album Requiescat In Plavem. Listen to album opener “Mi E Ti” and read all about this incredible record over at Brooklyn Vegan. Be prepared to immerse yourself in the Piave river on a psychedelic damaged folk country journey. Wait and see the packaging on this beauty (LP & CD).


A Note From Maple Death

When I received this record I had no idea what I was getting myself into. It came with no notes, just a letter in broken English. For days I made up lyrics to it trying to crack and uncover the language, dreaming of some Latin American retreat. Little did I know I was actually taking a stroll up the Piave river, plunging through pre-war cascades, seeing feverish trees set mountains in motion and a Veneto valley full of psychedelic beauty naked in front of my eyes. If only this river could talk I’m sure the stories from the 1918 battles would ring bloody loud and clear. 2012: Birds watched as Krano recorded R.I.P up in the hills behind Valdobbiadene, armed with a trusty 8-track tape machine. Then he disappeared into silence. As always it took a faithful caring friend to deliver the goods. Four years later here we are, music on wax, a man that deserves to be heard and a river that is still flowing.
