Earlier this month they released their début LP Talk in Roses (available on bandcamp). Relatively newly out of the blocks Nebulamigo are starting to find their feet in the live circuit and the six track, roughly twenty three minutes, can’t but help their cause.

The quintet are able to deliver compositions which are fairly angular in construct, yet somehow turn them in to flowing melting washes of colour that drift unhurriedly though the room, giving the music an hypnotic dreaminess.

The sharply pointed guitar is married with punctuating percussion and bass then rather than developing in to the anticipated mathematical-rock the whole effect is brushed by a calming light haze and veiled vocal delivering an unexpected ambient expansive calmness.

My selection from the LP is the penultimate – Distance.

96Avenue

96Avenue from Monza in Italy is the alt-rock quintet of Marco Gerosa (Vocals), Marco Fumagalli (Bass), Davide Savarino (Keys), Massimo Barni (Drums) and Gianluca Domine (Guitar).

96Avenue

Svelte sounds elegantly flight their way around the room as 96Avenue deliver music which has a strong melodic guitar / synth content, which is under-pinned by a solid bass / guitar foundation over which a softening vocal glides effortlessly. I am minded of an Aquarius Remigis as the quintent combine delicacy with purpose.

After nearly two decades performing under the name Arcadia, a change in line-up and a new direction of travel saw the band more recently become 96Avenue and their long careers as performing and recording musicians is evident in their out-put, which is polished. There is a continual desire to explore the depths of their well of creativity and the début release under the name 96Avenue, which came out at the end of last month – the seven track Distance – finds the band with new ideas to reveal.

For those familiar with the old iteration, there is enough of the old to be recognizable without sounding the same and for those new to the out-fit they will find strong compositions which have a freshness to them.
