Very pleased to be able to say that this is officially here! Check out this brand new split 12-inch EP out now on Dora Dorovitch(France).. with brand new material from Rickolus and debut project from D R O N E S (Swordplay + PT Burnem + Erik Akers of Double Rainbow)! This is an acoustic album with a twist; being both musically sound, fusing incredible lyricism making this an album to take us into the future. The message is current & I can see it being just that for many many years to come. For me, this is an instant classic!! You can stream and purchase the digital version here:
They are also currently accepting Pre-Orders for the vinyl version of this project and you can place your order over on their Bandcamp page here:
D R O N E S – “D R O N E S is a folk rap group from Richmond, VA who combines acoustic and digital elements into their music. Sounding like what you might expect if Pink Floyd had ever rapped, the songs oscillate appropriately between electronic shoegaze and the droned out workings of acoustic guitars. Lyrically, D R O N E S is a paranoia soaked nosedive into the collective subconscious of America. Written from the perspective of drone operators, while sometimes taking on the homicidal voices of the drones themselves, D R O N E S offers a collection of songs that could easily be imagined sung around a post-World War III campfire”.
Rickolus – “Rivers and Lakes is a five part folk song about the ridiculous beautiful trials of a young romantic. It was written as a burst of words almost unconsciously pouring out of Rick Colado late at night while he was working as a projectionist at a movie theatre. The music came together when Rick showed the bare songs to his friends Anthony Anurca and Rebecca Zapen who then added their wild talent to the record, giving the songs the strange arrangement of guitar, voice, violin and bassoon. It’s a unique but familiar sound, recorded live in a little green shed in Rick’s parents backyard, the sounds blend together as if they were all coming from one source”.
