Diane And The Shell - 30,000 Feet Tarantella Review
by Morley Seaver
Music for your head, not your feet. Diane and the Shell (it's actually four guys and no one's called Diane) play instrumental soundscapes that are unlike other such music in that it's not simply background music. Mix Primus with early Genesis and that's sorta what we have hear, although it's even a bit removed from that comparison.
This Italian quartet mixes glockenspiel and assorted samples along with the standard guitar/bass/drums on this, their debut record. The material runs from tranquil to the more adventurous and is sprinkled with airport sounds. This is interesting stuff that keeps your attention more than other instrumental music and makes you wonder what they're capable of. In the meantime, this is perfect music to decompress on the way home from work.
