(12rec, 2007)

Descubrí a Nic Bommarito hace relativamente poco tiempo gracias a la estupenda labor de 12rec, una netlabel alemana con sede en Dortmund centrada básicamente en música pop, ya sea en sus variante más pegadiza o en aquella más innovadora y experimental. Sea como fuere, allí encontró hogar para su disco este joven estudiante estadounidense de apellido peculiar. Y visto lo visto, su apellido no es lo único que sorprende en él. Viajante inquieto, interesado en la filosofía y apasionado estudiante de sánscrito, en 2006 hace las maletas y se marcha a China, donde comienza sus estudios en la Universidad del Tibet. Trayectoria poco habitual para un estudiante americano, desde luego.
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.

release notes:

"Nic Bommarito comes off like the all-American college boy. He's from a small city in the near distance to Detroit, Michigan. He studied philosophy in Ann Harbor and changed to Albuquerque, New Mexico to expand his Sanskrit-studies. This trip took him across 2/3 of the US, but the next relocation was even more thoroughgoing . In 2006, Nic moved to Lhasa in Tibet, roof of the world.
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)
