[LBN037]  Feminine – “Lorelei” (December 10, 2016)

 

[LBN037] Feminine - "Lorelei"

Lorelei is the debut album from duo Feminine (Giampiero Riggio and Francesco Cipriano).

A wave manifesto against the deeply rooted reverence for the logic of genres.

“Lorelei” develops on two complementary levels: one archaic and passionate,

troubled by the many contradictions of a land like Sicily and the other,

accurate and bewitching, is a prelude to teutonic Stuttgart.

A countless number of bytes which they shared and exchanged remotely.

This work is romantic and brave at the same time, constantly immersed into a very deep atmosphere, never trite,

fooled by the certainty that there is no dream which cannot be described.

REVIEWS

Distorsioni:  “…un magico equilibrio tra una visione fortemente sentimentale e drammatica…”
Traks:  “è spesso nel minimalismo di alcune tracce che si avvertono gli istinti migliori del disco.”
Ziklibrenbib:  “impressionnant et singulier et à écouter à fort volume pour en saisir toutes les riches nuances.”
Triste:  “Uno sguardo sul passato e la voglia di sperimentare insolite e istintive fusioni sono gli ingredienti di questo ottimo primo atto…”
Rockerilla:  “un’alchimia sonora che stupisce e ammalia.”
TomTomRock:  “…le dieci tracce del disco vivono per conto loro senza bisogno di troppi rimandi. Ed è già un gran bel risultato.”
The Breakfast Jumpers:  “un disco chi ti dilata e contrae il cuore come un muscolo involontario.”
Liverpool Sound and Vision:  “Feminine have opened up something that is fleshy, full of heart and more importantly has soul.”
Beach Sloth:  “…a passionately felt piece of work, one whose arrangements linger in the mind long after they are over.”

Yeah I Know It Sucks:  …nice material, it’s just difficult to say something fruitful about it, why talk if you could just listen, right?”
Rockit.it:  “una sorta di concept bicromatico dove crepuscolo e luce duellano sopra un immaginifico, quanto composito, palcoscenico”
