Pretty unbelievable All Over Everywhere are still unsigned.
From Maryland, United States, this symphonic Band is Dan Britton's brainchild, leading an orchestra of ten elements: guitars, strings, accordion, piano, dulcimer (!), drums and percussions, flute, clarinet plus Megan Wheatley's sweet and angelic vocals, often the honey of All Over Everywhere's melancholic bitterness.
Rich and visionary arrangements, often majestic and epic, - think King Crimson (for the prog component),
Love Spirals Downwards (I can sense something gothic), Mercury Rev (for the hypnagogic/day dream side).
Gratitude is fully epic, trascendental and epic, it blooms and opens like a flower; - Honesty and Until the Sun Begins to Fall are the missing songs of Projekt rec's catalogue with hints of Goldfrapp's Felt Mountain bucolic fugues, as well Air's The Virgin Suicides: You know, that sense of mere mysticism and poetry, grace and Love merging together.
Plus, Art of the Earth, it is a multicolour cradle of harmonies and feelings, psychedelically sweet and mesmeric. Something able to levitate the listener one foot in the air.
My unique personal criticism goes to the abuse of too much incense and baroque wonder now and then, like in the medieval On a Dark Street.
Said that, Gratitude, and Honesty.. simply disarming, pure glorious Beauty.

Piuttosto incredibile che gli All Over Everywhere siano ancora senza un'etichetta discografica.
Dal Maryland, Stati Uniti, questa Band sinfonica nasce da un'idea di Dan Britton, a guida di un'orchestra di dieci elementi: chitarre, archi, accordion, piano, dulcimer (!), batterie e percussioni, flauto, clarinetto, più il cantato dolce ed angelico di Mega Wheatley, spesso il miele che addolcisce l'amarezza dei suoni.
Arrangiamenti ricchi e visionari, spesso magistrali ed epici, pensate ai
King Crimson (per la componente prog), Love Spirals Downwards (io riesco a sentirci qualcosa di gotico), Mercury Rev (per la parte trasognata/ipnagogica).
Gratitude è epica in pieno, trascendentale ed epica, un fiore che matura e si apre in pieno rigoglio; - Honesty e Until the Sun Begins to Fall sono i pezzi che mancano al catalogo della Projekt rec, con accenni delle fughe bucoliche dei Goldfrapp di Felt Mountain o anche The Virgin Suicides degli Air: sapete, quel senso di mero misticismo e poesia, grazia e Amore che si accompagnano l'un l'altra.
Nonchè, Art of the Earth, è una culla multicolore di armonie e sentimenti, psichedelicamente dolce e mesmerica. Qualcosa capace di far levitare l'ascoltatore ad un piede da terra.
La mia unica nota negativa personale va all'abuso di troppo incenso e maraviglia barocca qua e là, un pò come per la medievaleggiante On a Dark Street.
Detto ciò, Gratitude, e Honesty.. semplicemente disarmanti in purezza e bellezza.
