3 stars 2020 is terribly another special year for people all over the world. In the EU, especially Italy, people have been suffering from coronavirus pandemic since the early days of this year. Winter has come in the Northern Hemisphere, and such a terrible situation has not changed but worthened more. There is no coming nor going worldwide, and we have depression due to unclear future. However, we MUST try to find another hope and future brightness in a continuous manner. A Macerata-based combo METRONHOMME's latest ep "Tutto il tempo del mondo - 1.ņikos" is filled with depressive atmosphere and heartwarming flavour of hope. They say this ep was produced with material each of them created at home, on instruments around them. I've heard some musicians work for production in the same way, and actually they create lots of good opuses. "Tutto il tempo del mondo - 1.ņikos" is no exception. We can feel their essential musical spirit should be well unified and consolidated. Look at this sleeve, and feel their identification.

A tough "Quarantine" sounds like their sincere feeling. Monotonous but boiling melody lines would be naturally born via their anxious and restless condition at home. But somewhat strong will can be heard here and there, at least for me. "Come la neve" has lonesome atmosphere, just like we are watching snow falling through a window. A tad cold but heartsome. The former part of "...di una moneta che cade" is so beautiful and delightful enough for us to dream a fantastic dream. Voices of playing children on the background? The middle phase gives us massive cheer. This energetic texture would also be launched for themselves, I guess. But yes, under such a terrible circumstance we have some anxiety to visit a "Supermarket", that basically should be kinda wonderland for everyone. Their creation offers a combination of concern and tiny happiness for us all over the world. And our thirst to go outside actively can be quenched by the beautiful piano sound in "Arkč" that is another favourite of mine. "Il rumore del mare" shows that nature should be great and not easily be overcome. Anyway we never give up and get nature as our supporter. Via "La cittą di K." (what city do they mean, let me ask?) chilling air, deserted roads, and people's enthusiasm for reconstructing their own city in near future ... various movements can be heard overall.

Yes now it's time for us to put up with the situation but will see the sunshine anytime soon.
