• angelo de augustine Swim Inside the Moon (CD, £10.50)

    label: Asthmatic Kitty

    ‘Swim Inside The Moon’ is a delicate, confident, quiet singer songwriter record by 24 year old Angelo De Augustine.  Angelo’s setup was simple: a Shure SM57 microphone next to the wall of the shower and a cable back to an analogue reel-to-reel in his nearby bathroom. For some songs, he played his mother’s 100-year old piano in the living room and on others he added synth and electric guitar.  Listeners might hear Nick Drake’s intricate arpeggiated guitar parts, Elliott Smith’s pure vocals or, at times, a likeness to the soulfulness of artists such as Robert Johnson, Vashti Bunyan and Judee Sill.
