Al margen de su perfil académico, Nic Bommarito se dedica a escribir breves historias, ensayos, dibujar comics y, por supuesto, a crear música. Música extremadamente sugestiva e interesante, delicada y profunda.
En resumen, un estupendo descubrimiento y un prometedor artista al que seguir de cerca.
Nic is the unresting type. Due to his studies, he runs several websites, draws small comic strips, releases philosophical prose and documents his travels via a nice photo-blog. What's interesting for you: Nic Bommarito is a talented musician, too. He got in contact with us in late 2006, and we spontaneously decided to release his Taciturn LP at 12rec.
The Taciturn LP fuses instrumental Rockmusic with moments of alt. country and epic indie-pop, keeping an eye on melody and structure. Imagine a mixture of Canadian GYBE!, the americana avant-garde of Chicago's Brokeback and the huge melodies of Italian post-rockers Giardini di Mirò. Nic might not be the perfect musician, but he knows how to build up a song. For example, "Taciturn I" lasts nearly 10 minutes but you won't regret any single second. There's a strong sense of yearning throughout the whole LP that invokes a lot of pictures. "Badly Asbestos-Covered" sounds like desert and sea at the same time, bringing together slide guitar and accordion. The heavy string-arrangement for the final track "I Never Listen" is among the most touching I've ever heard". (12rec)
