[Video] I Baci – Cerco Lei

Sometimes, it’s very pleasant to hear a bit of 70’s schmaltz. When it’s done by Italians, it’s so much better!

[Video] Valgeir Sigurðsson – Between Monuments/Guardian at the Door

Good heavens, this is an absolutely schizophrenic piece of music. It ranges from a sumptuous minimalist to an edgy post-rock before sliding into something more appropriate in an electroacoustic work.

Valgeir Sigurðsson hails from Iceland. Why is this not surprising? Yet another composer/musician from there to watch out for. To hear the whole of Architecture of Loss, the album this track is on, go to Valgeir’s Bandcamp site.

[Sample] Asalt0 Al Parque Zoológico – APZOO EP


A real tragedy. Asalt0 Al Parque Zoológico are a shoegazer band out of Buenos Aires, Argentina who bring to mind such acts as My Bloody Valentine and Lush, and are certainly worth a listen.

Unfortunately, I came across them too late, as it seems drummer Gabo Malmus and her boyfriend, Sebastian, were killed yesterday in a tragic plane crash over the Alps.

May they rest in peace, and may APZOO recover.
