King of Corns

by My Home, Sinking

King of Corns is almost a choral piece, whose sounds are assembled with a compositional coherence that leaves no doubt about the sensitivity of Enrico Coniglio who conveyed them into the final form.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Double LP, 180 gram pressing on black vinyl. Limited to 300 copies. Gatefold tip-on sleeve with design by Chris Bigg (4AD / v23) featuring imagery by James Heginbottom.

Almost a choral piece, whose doughs are however assembled with a compositional coherence that leaves no doubt
about the sensitivity of the one who conveyed them into the final form of the work. After the melancholic
winter views of the previous albums, the folk guitar and the harmonica at Mark Feltham of Rabbit lend themselves
to the hatch of a bucolic scenario that brings with it the feel of a tragedy skimpy, as it already announces the incipit "Bird's Eye ", where the piano of Elisa Marzorati draws Atticus Ross's" The Social Network "- while the reference touch will be more of Harold Budd's touch .

The vibe of Peter Paul Gallo and Piergabriele Mancuso's Viola are competing for the quality of the ensemble's overall quality, sometimes sweet, sometimes as frenzied as the soundings of Malcolm Goldstein ("Love Scene"). But the most striking and distinctive feature is undoubtedly those of the singers: in the title track, Jessica Constable offers a silent and silent voice performance with a gothic and dramatic flavor on the notes of the darkest nightclub ; Finnish Violeta Päivänkakkara is the fairy presence that illuminates from within a faded replica of reality ("Animating Old Postcards"); for his part, instead, the soloist Chantal Acdawith a delicate and fluttered voice "I Can not Help It", probably the only song in the traditional sense, and this is why it is even more exciting at the time of its landing.

One might be amazed at discovering such a melodic sensibility by an artist who normally works with natural sounds: in logic, however, just the gift of giving musicality or narrative power to living matter gives meaning to the spontaneous instrumental writing of Rabbit and its "orchestrator" qualities. In his classic elegance, "King Of Corns" exerts on the listener a caressing and sweet-hearted seduction, which in dark colors often and willingly opposed to the most conciliatory chiaroscuro, in the precarious and sublime balance that is precisely of the poetic form.
