Guest Feature by Toni Cutrone

Here we are in a new year. There has been a lot of talk lately about the one we just left, what has been accomplished and what's not… But I also think it's nice to jump into the future, trying to guess what is going to happen (and probably mistaking!).

Three bands and one label that will do great things in 2012? Not so easy, but there will be a lot of them for sure! Especially since my point of view is focused on bands and artists that are not really BIG even though doing great things. But let’s just give this a better tone and call it niche music created by music researchers!

Narrowing the selection to my surroundings (NO=FI Recordings, the shows at DalVerme and the touring with Trouble Vs Glue and Hiroshima Rocks Around) I would start with:


After their online "Death Surf" EP, Boring Machine (one of the labels I like the most) have just released their first LP (also entitled "Death Surf", and there is already a lot of buzz about them. (Check out a SV interview from last year with the duo here.) Reviews of the album say it sounds like... Sergio Leone on drugs, (heroin or something more psychedelic?), while sitting on a beach and looking at people surfing wearing a death metal outfit...

I don't know if I agree with this image but I really like this album. And coming soon out on NO=FI is a split LP between Heroin In Tahiti and… okay… let's keep that a surprise for you!

Up tomorrow... Trans Upper Egypt
