I’m shaken (not stirred) by Verano

VERANO – BOMBAFRAGOLA  (42 Records) Verano says “For all the “Bombafragola” I’ve been drinking for and for the ones I’ll drink again.” “Bombafragola” is “an absurd cocktail and (they say) deadly, bright pink, which is prepared in a historic bar in Milan”. The song itself is a killer – lovely guitar work, splendid organ and…

I’m in thrall to Zero Call

Zero Call – Mind Instruction (Werkstatt Recordings) Photo: Leonardo Bizzarri Zero Call is an Italian electronic music composer. “Mind Instruction” is a superbly dark take on analogue 80s synths, think Giorgio Moroder’s evil twin. Love the video clip as well. YouTube 2018 Playlist Spotify 2018 Playlist

Part 1, wherein we discover Her Skin

Her Skin – Cut Out the Flowers Here is the gently sad, beautiful sung, folk-tinged “Cut Out the Flowers” by Her Skin. Love the understated touches – the keyboard, the whistling (the whistling!) and the little electrical shocks. The song is from the debut LP “Find a Place to Sleep” (WWNBB Collective). Her Skin is…
