Garry Pitcairn is vehicle for the singer / songwriter / multi instrumentalist Gabriele Maruti from Milan in Italy to expose an avenue of symbolic rock, with Steve Lions on drums.
Step back from the freneticism of the day and settle back for an engaging ride with Garry Pitcairn. Metaphors abound in the visual contextualisations that drift across the floor before rising in a haze of a delayed smoke bomb and the listener is suddenly enveloped in a mist of languid tumerity, such are the paroxysms of the music.
A diversity of subsumed instrumentals are proffered to the ears, each melting into the next and it is only after a moment under the anaesthetic that the audience finds they are transfixed in an array of textures. There is a vocal context, however that too is fluxed inside the landscape, this is music to enjoy for its evocatism.
If none of the above helped – think melting chocolate infused with cream – luxuriant in the extreme.
I thank Sefano of Danza Records for putting up with my vitriol over his emails introducing Garry Pitcairn – hey I even managed to argue over the population of The Pitcairns, which perhaps is an indicator of how a band speaking to me directly will get a better response than an intermediary with a ‘cut and paste’ press release gumph.
Most importantly – a delightful score I recommend spending some time to enjoy.
