“Tales of Faith and Lunacy”, recorded and produced near Venice in Italy by Matt Bordin of Outside Inside Studio (Squadra Omega, among his recordings and productions Thurston Moore / Sonic Youth, Michael Zerang, Jackie O’ Motherfucker, Delaney Davidson), released on October 30th, 2020 in vinyl, CD and cassette via Berlin psych label Nasoni Records and Italian labels BloodRock Records and Anacortes Records. “Tales of Faith and Lunacy” is a visionary story with a cinematic flavor, a timeless journey conceived in a personal vision of faith between spirituality and passion. The album, featuring Samantha Stella as singer, musician and lyricist, and Nicola Manzan (Bologna Violenta) as guest violinist, unfolds in a desert landscape where medieval European mystical influences blend with the flavour of the American West to weave a gloomy, minimal psychedelia.

Highly recommend this collection. It's too much to take in one go for me but great to dip in and out of - I've had some brilliant surprises so far and expect more to come. And, oh no, volume 2 is out already!! Davesworld
