Italian Horn - Gotham White

Unlike a lot of people I know, I'm usually one of those guys that can listen to an album and immediately place its sound-a-likes, its predecessors, and what type of person would usually listen to said record. Whether thats good or not isn't really the issue, what is the issue is that I'm pissed off. I'm pissed because Italian Horn's Gotham White is a rare occasion where I can't really place said music in a specific genre or a specific type of person that would like it. But I'm going to try my best to describe its sound because this album is amazing. 6 definitely solid tracks of what, to me anyway, fits somewhere between post-rock melodic repetition and Today is the Day's dark ambience. This is something you're all going to want to check out for sure. Definite favorite for sure is the albums closer, "Skinhead with a Bluetooth Earpiece".

not to be completely off topic, but now i see after doing this for a little while how frustrating it can be that people look and download, but do not communicate ANYTHING about what you are doing...so i still give major respect (if not more now) for keeping this shit going and if nothing else respecting yourself for sharing some awesome shit between yourselves and the 20 other people who actually care. kudos zen dudes...

Well this isn't my blog, its the Lord of all awesome Tim's blog. But thank you. Please check this band out. The dude who does this shit totally desreves it. We all appreciate communication between true music lovers such as ourselves. Deaddreamnation you've commented on quite a few uploads I've done and thanks for all the kind words man. Uploading music is such a fine line for me personally because I'm friends with a lot of these bands and they don't make money off their records. So buy it if you like it. Keep on dl'ing and we'll keep on uploading.

with all due respect to the 'men of zen', this has effectively been your blog for about two weeks now!

good stuff you've been posting... I haven't commented myself but I can see a lot of what you are promoting is finding a very receptive audience

and on topic, I'm listening to 'Skinhead With a Bluetooth Earpiece' right now... It's wonderful, wonderful noise but at the same time very 'classy'.

Just the one guy you say? What with this, Gtuk and Dan Deacon I'm discovering the music of a lot of weird individuals these days!

I'm just a...simple caveman lawyer...from a simpler time...thrown into this chaos of the 20th century. Your moving boxes on wheels scare and confuse me.

On topic, as far as I know its just Anthony Pappalardo from In My Eyes doing everything.
