— First review of this album —
4 stars Weird acoustic drone psychedelia filled with distorted harmonies and oriental leanings. His material should be in the similar vein not only to Krautrock but also Post Rock.

SILENT CARNIVAL founded by an Italian artist Marco GIAMBRONE produce such a freakout, trippy journey drenched in musical hallucinogens. This album entitled "Somewhere" released in 2018 is the latest one created by them (as of the summer 2021) keeps launching an enchanting, charming, and fascinating atmosphere that obviously drives the audience addicted to. The very beginning of the first shot "Cold As Marble" sounds quite authentic acoustic and ambient, but the track gets dissecting and poisonous as it goes forward. The middle part veiled in a dress named 'calmness' involves perfect comfortable distortion and intensive regression to the old-fashioned electro-psychedelic era. Their agitated harmony would hold our inner heart rigidly. Mystic, mysterious melodic lines are pretty innovative that cannot be heard via orthodox Krautrock or Electronic subgenres. Until the last palpitations we could not leave this track I guess.

The titled one is another madness, featuring quiet guitar-oriented atmospheric foundation stone and addictive chorus. Their chorus is not so simple nor beautiful but gives us somewhat anxiety but full of comfort, amazingly. Melody lines in this track are very simple and repetitive but intensive and powerful to shake our body and mind continuously. The fourth track "Calvary" is kinda killa. Slowtempo drumming and depressive saxophone playing are fantastically effective to construct the core of this track. Eerie synthesizer-based sound fluctuation around them is another dry-fruity spice. All instruments are violent and offensive, even though they play sincerely and quietly. There is no tiny acoustic nor lightness around them but serious distortion and especially unexpected sound effects like sudden loud fuzzes or deep dark drastic melodic changes, like "Endurance". "Innocence" is delicious and delightful with regards to its melodies and movements. On the contrary perpetual guitar sound space creates 70s psychedelic scape for every single fan.

Very relaxing but aggressive and critical. This is why we cannot ignore their crucial soundscape. Welcome to Marco's muddy novel-y Krautrock world.

— First review of this album —
4 stars This release saw the light on the highly recommended independent label Old Bicycle Records. The label provides a wide range of (post) rockin experimental and minimal ambient releases, exclusively produced by Italian artists. This self titled album represents the more intensively rock facet of the label production with the add of nicely adventurous musical arguments. Fruitfully creative, eclectic and challenging this album admits a stylistic bridge between aleatoric abstract experiments, noisy electronic experiments, wild kraut-rockin minimal sequences, death-rockin-batcave fragments and apocalyptical folk tendencies. The album progresses like an existential-egotic tale along lonely hours of despair in an isolated-desolate, post-human, enthralling and downfall atmosphere. Imagine a cross between foggy death ballads of Nick Cave at the beginning of his career, Current93's stranged-out folkish darkness, Faust's krauty touch and doom-math rock materials from Earth. Prettily evocative and with long monologues this album has a nice murky flavor that could fit perfectly for a score to twisted road movie flicks. A difficult and hermetic listen for neophyts but a truly somber-addictive album that will seduce fans of bizarre and blackened kraut-post rockin exentricities.
Thanks to philippe for the artist addition.
