Underrated Glances At The Edge Of Town
(Maple Death Records - MDR012) Cassette $7.75
Stealing his stage name from an old sage picker encountered on a summer journey through the Albanian rocky landscape, Dominique Vaccaro now resides in Bologna where he wrote and recorded his debut for Maple Death Records, an album that wanders down the path created by Takoma and Vanguard guitar legends. A fire-in-the-belly, sweat-drenched soul, J.H. Guraj soaks in cultures from far away in order to build a new sense of home and belonging. Vaccaro’s work over the last ten years as a visual artist and electro-acoustic musician (musique concrète with analog devices and tape recorders) certainly informs his approach, but Underrated Glances At The Edge Of Town creates space and dimension solely through the use of his fingerpicking and cinematic attitude.
