Paolo Spaccamonti – Volume Quattro (Escape from Today)

The sleeve’s artwork tells us everything we need to know here. Paolo Spaccamonti is known as a film score composer and avant-garde musician, so I was on alert for something artistic, different and creative. The eleven pieces take us to… Continue Reading →

Phobias are clearly an issue with French band Ni. All eleven tracks are suffixed with different ones – catagelophobie, héliophobie, stasophobie to name but three. But what’s in a track title? Everything points to a fluid approach to creativity, and… Continue Reading →
