Label: Som Non-Label, 2015
SIDES is the music project by Savino, guitarist with MOVEONOUT and HABITAT, started in 2014, a powerful and obscure meeting between post-rock, dub and acoustic sounds. It results serious killer mix. Track 1, Moving Walls, comes with haunting ambience from guitar and fx covered with rhythmic monotone drum-beat.
Leave, the second track, is another one. It combines heavy fuzzy riff as a stoner band on energetic drum and vague twinkle sound. Listen to the end because it will take you higher in the middle, before leaving you in emptiness without a trace. Natural Escape is my favorite one. It is unique that the guitar only plays the same riff along the song and so does the drum. The progress made by the ambience, the tone of the fx. Another Sad Day, the last track, is appealing. It is the only slow-tempo song in the Ep. It feels so gloomy, especially when you hear the trumpet that played by Danilo Di Nicola guiding the finger-picking acoustic guitar. It is not only an album, it is a journey from room to room. Give it a listen.
