DOWNLOAD: Felt Drawings - Body
Last year I posted up some of Dominic Tiberio's free Felt Drawings mp3s that he'd posted on his website, along with the links to two eps on his Bandcamp page. Hearing just the first few bars of his music insipred on of those urgent post immediatly responses. Something heavy is going on here and it needs spreading and my response to hearign this album has been no different. That he has released his first full length album as a FREE DOWNLOAD is an act of deviant generosity in the same vein of spirit that imbues all of the tracks on it. Like rolling Cold Cave's Loves Comes Close and Cremations together into a darkane concoction of fizzing hissing sleek pop silhouettes. there's the shadowy presence of Blank Dogs lurking in the background, as well as all their own original 80's forbears - In My Room even buries an echo of the Knight Rider theme into its pulsing background synth strata.
Baroque and theatrical, shady and withdrawn; these tracks simultaneously sound bedroom-bound and theatre sized, the smells of grimy industrial sweat and musty velvet stage wings mingling as the effects of the songs shift mood, atmosphere and intent. Definitely an album that will be getting a lot of plays out of me.
