It's a Grande Finale actually Smile

An initial vote goes for iamthemorning.


As a decor - nice reviews of both band's magnificent albums.

4 stars Now come on, music like this just doesn't get released these days. It's 2013! Didn't anyone check the calendar? Imagine Cat Stevens mixed with early Genesis, Yes, Al Stewart and possibly just a little Gentle Giant and you may get somewhere close to understanding what this wonderful album is like. It is a summery burst of sunshine, where it is all about great music and plenty of acoustic guitars with swathes of keyboards to boot. It is fragile yet strong, modern yet extremely vintage and the result is something that is like a breath of fresh air to these poor abused ears of mine.

This Italian trio is led by Valerio Smordoni (lead and backing vocals, MiniMoog, keyboards, piano, harmonium, acoustic guitar, tambourine and Taurus Pedals) and he is joined by Manolo D'Antonio (acoustic and 12-string guitar, electric guitar, classical guitar, ukulele and backing vocals) and Marco Avallone (bass, synth bass, Taurus Pedals and percussions) plus a few guests to provide some additional timbres. It really is a thing of beauty, and I only hope that we are going to be hearing a great deal more from them as this progressive/folk debut is a delight.

4 stars Russian band IAMTHEMORNING was formed in 2010, and appears to revolve around the talents of creative duo of Marjana Syomkina and Gleb Kolyadin. Their self described "acoustic/chamber progressive" music found its initial outlet in 2012 with the release of their digitally self released debut album "~", - or "Tilde" if you like, as that is the name of that specific symbol. In 2013 this production was released on CD through the German label Beste Unterhaltung Records.

Russian band iamthemorning has made itself a debut album they can be proud of. Beautiful female lead vocals courtesy of Marjana Syomkina supplemented by equally beautiful piano textures by Gleb Kolyadin, supported by classically oriented string arrangements and occasional rock oriented sections with bass, drums and guitars adding their distinctly contrasting features to this otherwise classically oriented landscape. I'd suggest that fans of artists like Kate Bush and Bel Canto might want to inspect this album, especially those amongst them who also have a taste for classical music in general and chamber music in particular.

I know (and like) the second only, so no vote by now.

iamthemorning

When he rides, my fears subside.
For darkness turns once more to light.
Through the skies, his white horse flies.
To find a land beyond the night.

Iamthemorning. Essential beauty and musicianship. Camelias Garden are doing great, but not great enough to compete with iatm.

Oh by the way, are they connected in any way? https://www.facebook.com/iamthemorningband/posts/619653941394593
