Dave Bianchi – “Nowhere” mp3
Within minutes of dubya’s re-election in 2004, Dave Bianchi decided to leave the USA, soon landing in Barcelona. There he opened a recording studio called the Emergency Room, where he produced records with some brilliant area artists and released them on his own WHATABOUTMUSIC label. This Kurt Weil meets Radiohead sounding piece from his solo debut, “The Suburbs of Salt” finds our expatriate hero deep in the throes of an existential social networking crisis. The composition is elegant and comical, the performances inspired and precise, all matching a frightfully accurate poetic gaze into the digital abyss. Brilliant.
