OUT NOW! Dizzyride

 The night tale of a saxophone intertwines with layers of synths and gets animated almost without rhythm, all while an angelic voice floats between dark and dawn lost among reverbs and lost into the wind blowing from the sea: it’s from this grey area that it all squares off perfectly! Soundtrack, the opener for Dizzyride‘s eponymous debut states “No such thing as homeless in nowhere land”: it’s a feeling we won’t be able to forget for the rest of the album – the certainty that anywhere we are and anywhere we’ll be, love will cross any boundaries and will always be stronger than solitude, uncertainties, and time. “Every moment will be what it should be / We exist in ways beyond our control / Every moment we shared has been mystical” as sung in Young You, could be an ascetic dazed predicament, and instead it is the frank and overwhelming instant that captures one of those precious and rare flashes of absolute lucidity, where the simple wonder of finding themselves alive aligns and equates all we have always known and chosen to believe. It’s amazing to be able to witnessing such a majestic thing and transfer it to music and lyrics – “Going back to the one I adore / Shining bright like a star / He is near when I am far” (Candy Lullaby). Dizzyride’s sound re-invents and summarizes influences that take from minimalistic-pop, psychedelia, afro-beat, disco, electronic lo-fi and soul music in ten delicate songs that can’t find similarities among contemporaries. Once every now and then, music introduces itself with a pulsing vibrancy that can move us. Dizzyride are Nicola Donà (The Calorifer Is Very Hot! / Horrible Present) and Montreal born Zoë Kiefl, couple in art and in life: they live, rise their daughter, compose and record in Brooklyn. This is their first album, available digitally from every platform and on a limited edition 12″ vinyl from our stores.

 Il racconto notturno di un sassofono si intreccia a luminosi tappeti di synth, animandosi quasi senza ritmo, mentre una voce angelica fluttua, si immerge e riaffiora, tra il buio e l’alba, persa tra riverberi e vento che soffia dal mare: dal chiaroscuro, tutto si accende in un’inquadratura perfetta. “No such thing as homeless in nowhere land”, proclama Soundtrack, la canzone che apre l’eponimo album d’esordio dei Dizzyride. È una sensazione che non ci scrolleremo più di dosso per tutta la durata del disco: la certezza che, ovunque staremo andando, l’amore conterà più di muri e confini, sarà sempre più forte della solitudine, delle nostre incertezze di un’ora, e anche del tempo che ci passa addosso. “Supersonic, amour fou”, ripete Jungle Mix. “Every moment will be what it should be / We exist in ways beyond our control / Every moment we shared has been mystical” (da Young You): potrebbe sembrare il comizio ebbro di un asceta in stato confusionale, e invece è la schietta e travolgente istantanea che cattura uno di quei preziosi e rari lampi di assoluta lucidità, in cui il semplice stupore di ritrovarsi a vivere allinea e fa coincidere tutto quello che abbiamo sempre saputo e scelto in fondo ai nostri pensieri. È straordinario osservare da tanto vicino un fenomeno così maestoso, poterlo sfiorare in forma di canzoni e di parole d’amore. “Going back to the one I adore / Shining bright like a star / He is near when I am far” (Candy Lullaby). Il suono dei Dizzyride trasforma e distilla influenze di pop minimalista, tradizione psichedelica, disco afro- beat, elettronica lo-fi e soul music in dieci delicate composizioni che esulano dalle affinità con altri nomi contemporanei. Una volta tanto, la musica si presenta a noi con una verità palpitante, che fa quasi commuovere. I Dizzyride sono Nicola Donà (The Calorifer Is Very Hot! / Horrible Present) e Zoë Kiefl, cantautrice originaria di Montreal. Coppia nell’arte e nella vita dal 2014, risiedono a Brooklyn, dove hanno registrato due EP. Questo è il loro primo album disponibile in digitale su tutte le piatteforme e su vinile 12″ in tiratura limitata sui nostri store.

Crossed Like Strangers – Joyce in Pola

Joyce in Pola, We Were Never Being Boring, WNNBB

Joyce in Pola, We Were Never Being Boring, WNNBB

Crossed Like Strangers is the first single extract from “Any, Some Other”, Joyce in Pola’s debut EP. A cut-up of verses by the Polish poet Wisława Szymborska in a plot against a backdrop of clear guitars and a melody which stretches like a question: “Take my hand and please pretend.” Bright and exuberant pop that would fit in an old Elephant 6’s mixtape.
Joyce In Pola is the new project born from Germana Bargoni (Les Mange-Tout ) and Nazareno Realdini (Calorifero). The band is completed by Matteo Maragno on bass and Juan Figueroa on guitar.

Crossed Like Strangers è il primo singolo tratto da Any, Some Other, EP di debutto dei Joyce In Pola. Un cut-up di versi della poetessa polacca Wisława Szymborska a cui fanno da sfondo un intreccio di limpide chitarre e una melodia che si distende come una domanda: “Take my hand and please pretend”. Pop solare ed esuberante che potrebbe trovare posto in una vecchia raccolta della Elephant 6.
I Joyce In Pola sono il nuovo progetto musicale nato da Germana Bargoni del duo Les Mange-Tout e Nazareno Realdini dei Calorifero. A completare la formazione, Matteo Maragno al basso e Juan Figueroa alla chitarra.

“Crossed Like Strangers” has just premiered over on Frigopop!

Calorifero – Mind Warp


Bright Colors Scene by headphonesman

Stai già aspettando l’estate? È stato tutto un casino così favoloso che il tempo è volato. Avevamo bevuto troppo alla festa ma la mattina dopo c’era da prendere l’aereo ed eravamo in piedi presto, e mentre cercavo i vestiti mi sono stupito perché pensavo che sarei stato a pezzi, e invece stavo morendo di fame, così siamo usciti di corsa, ridendo mentre tutti dormivano. Ecco, le quattro canzoni di questo EP sono come quella sorpresa: ritrovarsi tutti interi e sentirsi davvero in forma già prima del caffè, una scena dai colori ancora più brillanti perché ti aspettavi il grigio e il lunedì. Respirare forte, battere quattro e saltare tutto l’Oceano. Prima di trasferirsi per due terzi negli USA, i Calorifero cambiano nome e alleggeriscono la ragione sociale di quel “Very Hot”, ma non per questo sono meno infuocati. Anzi, nel Mind Warp EP suonano rock come non mai. Sarà per via del fatto che lo hanno inciso ad Oakland, California, durante l’ultimo tour. Al banco di regia c’era Eli Crews dello studio New, Improved Recording, dove hanno registrato fra gli altri Why?, Deerhoof e Kyp Malone. Il tocco finale al missaggio è di Alessandro Paderno (Le Man Avec Les Lunettes), lo Jari Haapalainen dell’indiepop di casa nostra.

E la prima cosa da fare quando si riemerge dopo una festa, è cominciare subito a organizzarne un’altra: non manca molto al prossimo album del Calorifero…

Are you waiting for summer? It was such a fabulous mess that time has flown by. We drank too much at the party although the next morning we had to take the plane and we were up early, and while looking for clothes I was surprised because I thought that I would be wasted, but instead I was starving, so we left running and laughing while everyone was still asleep. That’s it, the four songs on this EP are like the surprise to find yourself alive and kickin’ even before the coffee, an even more brilliant colored scene because you expected the usual gray Monday. A deep breath, 1-2-3-4  and ready to jump across the ocean. Before moving for 2/3 in the US, Calorifero changes name and lighten it of the “Very Hot”, but it doesn’t mean they’re less fiery. Even better, in this Mind Warp EP they play rock as never before! Maybe it’s because they recorded in Oakland, CA, during their last US tour. Eli Crews as sound engineer at New, Improved Recording, where bands such as Why?, Deerhoof and Kyp Malone have been recording as well. A last mixing touch by Alessandro Paderno (Le Man Avec Les Lunettes), that’s like the Jari Haapalainen of our indie-pop.

And what to do after recovering from a party? Best to start organizing another one! It won’t take long to the next Calorifero’s album….

uploading updates for the new year

So many news and updates that we don’t know where to start!!

-New year/new name for the once unpronounceable band known as The Calorifer is Very Hot! that shortened simply to Calorifero, ain’t it easier? Nice of them that they changed the name leaving us a great last song released by the sweet people at Lockengeloet on a pretty neato gatefold LP in good company of bands such as Television Personalities! Calorifero promises already a new EP titled Mind Warp that will be released in March. Can’t wait!

Young Wrists keep surprising the world (and us too!). The Independent wrote an article about them being one of the most blogged artists in 2010. Not bad! We suggest to check our store for their debut Wasted Youth, it might be sold out soon!

Horrible Present finally decided to give himself  to the audience with his very first live performance! You better check out the dates because we’re sure concerts will be rare and special. And if it’s a while to the next one you can entertain youself reading his first interview by La Belle Epop.

Still Flyin’ are going to release a new “album” or compilation titled  Neu Ideas via Ernest Jenning Record co. Ideas that, for this band that we love, never end. We look forward to receive more news from them, and even better we expect them to come on tour soon! Check their page that I didn’t link because it’s just great: www.takeyourshoesoffyoudontneedtheminthesky.com/

-The European cuteness invasion by The Ian Fays finished last week after the three weeks tour presenting their new album Jensen’s Camera. If you hadn’t had the chance (sorry dude!) to see them live, you can still enjoy the amazing pictures taken by Elena Morelli for Rollingstone and read a concert review by Federico Pirozzi.
