Giampiero Riggio ‎– Watschenbaum, Hold. Label: The Wool Shop Productions ‎– WOOL 016W/H. Hold written and recorded in 2009 in Kassel and Trapani.

Giampiero Riggio was born in Erice(TP), IT, in 1984. This is a solo project started in Palermo in 2004. the first publication dates back to 2006 with a small split with Sergio Di Salvo (. a Alga Nori) produced by the music webzine project Lallabau, run by Federico Lupo (zelle contemporary art, Palermo) and Andrea Penso (Cold Current Prod.

Like many of my fellow Italians, I was particularly fascinated with one really talented artist named Giampiero Riggio who played neofolk songs. The lyrics were in English, well-written, deeply personal, and his voice-often sung with a telephone effect-was frequently accompanied by a female one, especially in the choruses. In 2010-not even one year later-he released another album: Watschenbaum/Hold, a double record with a whopping 22 tracks. At that point, I became a devout fan. Around the same time, I saw another one of Giampiero’s live performances appear in its entirety on YouTube, with immaculate audio and video production.

But Giampiero Riggio, from Palermo, doesn't care at all and crafts a good (and double!) album fusing these two "old" genres. As you might expect, the music sounds both expansive and shy, warm and a bit detached. The two cds are quite different. Hold" reflects a more luminous spirit, and the atmosphere is more playful. Watschenbaum", on the contrary, is more empied-out, and dominated by a melancholic mood.

Today's album is the debut record of a very odd ld/whateverelse ensemble, lead by the omnipresent musical factotum Jacopo Andreini (L'Enfance Rouge, Vialka, Ronin, Ovo, Roy Paci, Cerberus Shoal, and many more).
