Masha Qrella’s three most recent singles have all featured on Few as tune of the day over the past couple of months.  She has just released her new album,  Keys, on Morr  Music. It finds Masha in scintillating form. It’s a record of understated, low-key (no pun intended) beauty –  melodic, deceptively simple and, above…

Interfew with Mirco Mariani of Saluti da Saturno and eXtraLiscio

It start’s like this: Genre: FLEXIBILE ORCHESTRA DA PIANOBAR FUTURISTICO. Interesting. I’m not sure how near or far away that is from dreampop (or in Scotland – drampop) shoegaze, darkwave, synthwave etc. but it sounds a hell of a lot more interesting. And it is. Enter MIRCO MARIANI – veteran collaborator of Enrico Rava, Marc…

Interfew with: la Rappresentante di Lista

la Rappresentante di Lista, formed in 2011, is Dario Mangiaracina and Veronica Lucchesi,  actors both, from Palermo and Tuscany.

The breathtaking follow-up, Bu Bu…
