Dandelions – Downtown Music Gallery

Downtown Music Gallery parla di Dandelions On Fire

Featuring Carla Bozulich on vocals, Simone Massaron on guitars, banjo & loops, Xabier Iriondo on mahai metak, Andrea Viti & Davide Tedesco bass and Zeno de Rossi on drums. We know of guitarist, Simon Massaron, from two ther discs on this same label with Danielle Cavallanti and Giovanni Maier. Drum wiz, Zeno de Rossi, can be found on more than a half dozen discs on the El Gallo Rojo and Splasch labels.
I must admit that I’ve become a big fan of singer, Carla Bozulich, over the past few years. I’ve caught Carla live with the last version of the Gerald Fibbers, with Nels Cline in Scarnella, her tribute to Willie Nelson and with Evangelista at the Victo Fest a couple of years back. It is difficult to describe what it is that is so special about her, yet each time I hear her sing, she does me in. Once again, Carla is in fine form on this disc with these righteous Italian folk/blues rockers. She sounds so world weary on the opening tune, “Never Saw Your Face,” which features some dark, probing string thing (mahai metak?) and scrunchy, scary guitar from Simone. The title track sounds as if it was written for Roy Orbison or maybe Elvis Presley, touching without being cheesy. Simone plays some earthy, skeletal banjo and slide guitar on “Love Me Mine” with some fine bluesy vocals by Carla. Carla wrote all of words here (in English) and does all of the singing as well. Simone’s music, arranging and playing fit Carla’s voice like a well worn glove throughout. Don’t let this buried treasure slip from your hands, you deserve to soothe yourself in the haunting sounds of ‘Dandelions on Fire’
