suggestioni musicali a cura di raffaello russo
Taken from the Loner Deluxe album “Songs I Taped Off The Radio” – released on Rusted Rail on July 12th 2017.
Rusted Rail is pleased to announce the release of “Songs I Taped Off The Radio”, the second album by Galway-based Loner Deluxe. This cassette album lives up to its title in that it plays like a mixtape curated by the artist himself, taking in his many musical moods.
The album dips its toes into a wide pool of touchstones and influences, from UFOlk to heat-haze beach pop, by way of lonesome lunar folk, library music, cosmic electronica and spooky sci-fi sounds, as seasonally-affected melodies shift and shimmer with the passing of one season to another.
Opening track “Winters Last Fire” had the honour of being included on Volume 7 of An Taobh Tuathail compiled by taste-making broadcaster Cian Ó Cíobháin, nestled alongside such artists as Sufjan Stevens, Colleen and Nils Frahm.
Featuring contributions from fellow Rusted Rail recording artists, “Songs I Taped Off The Radio” finds Loner Deluxe at the peak of his powers with guest appearances from members of A Lilac Decline, The Driftwood Manor, Music For Dead Birds, Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon, and So Cow, among others.
