Last night I was thinking that this morning would finally sit down and write about any of all I heard this week. The fucking awesome, is so difficult choice of only one in a series of discs I loved most… well, anyway…
What’s up, buddy? You feeling blue? then, well check out Multicolour Brain!, the sophomore release from classy Italian brit-psych slingers Soul Sailor & The Fuckers.
Really I did not know anything about Soul Sailor and their two records. The ball was thrown to me by my aussie friend Dave .
Soul Sailor (AKA Simonfrancesco Di Rupo) rose from the ashes of Mallard in 2007, where he was the main guitarist, born actually like a solo project has devoted training with Fuckers and released two efforts since 2012.
Me said, Why isn’t this bit of Perugia’s fantastic grooves better known? Inside them has everything you want in an eclectic band, Soul Sailor & The Fuckers pass through brit, psych, blues, folk but without to attribute any of the above only , and all with a wicked cool 60’s creature leering from the shadow.
So, they make a remarkable work from a band that seems at least experimenting with amalgamating sounds looking back with ambitious stylistic-music coordinates, something that I like personally very much ,and of course that here is good evidence . So Soul Sailor have a place on my earholes …
