An album like this gives me hope that the italian indie scene can be brilliant and original as well, such this record is fresh, inspired, bright, catchy and well produced. Not for nothing, but there's also Marco Fasolo of Jennifer Gentle [read koma reviews and interviews] playing some instruments here, making this psychedelic pop opus even more precious (listen to Hi! Goodbye!, great chorus, - Beatrice isd Jennifer). An album that surprises with its choices and naturalness. It's like You were in a small theatre, enjoying a lysergic bath of dancing spoons, moving in syncro with Beatrice Antolini, sweet singer, piano player (even at other instruments), with talent and fun. A tasty mix of jazz icing sugar (Michael Night), sounds carpets well researched to stain the reached twee-pop perfection, - psychic splinters of 60s (hear the final part of Monster Munch). Brother's bone makes me think of The Gentle Waves, such it is groovy, and Turtle and Peach in Love makes me wonder how much Kazu Makino of Blonde Redhead could dig it, seen its Gainsbourg-ian melancholy riff. Riule Ule, Applebug and His Doll, as well the opening Bread and Puppets are gems, and i think that together with Denise (of The Bid), Beatrice is one the rare female music beings worth to be called Artist in local indie no-scene, - and last but not least, Big Saloon is a debut album complete, a perfect piece of sound Art. - Release due to november 24th, paypal-able at mad cap collective rec.
not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
