[[ about ]]
Banjo or Freakout is Alessio Natalizia. An Italian in London, Alessio began conjuring his noise from the depths of his bedroom to thwart the loneliness lurking in the din of a new city. He sings, plays guitar, drums and programs beats, and then drenches them all in effects to create an affecting lo-fi dreamy pop.
This, his double A-side debut, includes one of his earliest tracks- ‘Mr No’- and his DFA-approved cover of LCD Soundsystem’s ‘Someone Great’. Easy reference points- Arthur Russell, Jay Dilla and anything that's ever vibrated, capturing the busy dreams of lost spectres in an endless, ascending loop.
