Rosolina Mar

2000 to 2009
Verona

Instrumental rock n’ roll with 70s influences for one the best live band of latest years. A must!.
Rosolina Mar are one of those rare groups that within a song make you experience the different sensations.
Their songs are crossed by continuous change, acceleration, stop and go, and references to forty years of rock history. Indie-rock, post-rock, noise, kraut, psychedelic, blues, funk … as a set of dice rolling on the floor and whose faces fit gradually giving rise to an image clear and consistent.

One year and a half after previous s/t full-lenght, italian Rosolina Mar are back with a more decisive step into 70’s electricity.

Notwistanding the same past passion for half-demential titles; they dive into wha-wha driven suites, almost embracing acid jazz in some hot pursuits à la Harry Callahan, even if it stays still after behind the corner the warm splendour of funky mono.

Regarding, listen to Isa Eyes, unique track with two words vocals, – or short and intense Tuttopapetti e Protopapetti.
Then, while the title-track as well as Car Patch (D-tone) turn on the free-jazz side of two guitars & drums ensemble, Flesh Dance brush by the fusion music school, putting aside melancholy, but focusing on excitement of the rythm section changes.

Rosolina Mar’s debut album is an exemple of how it is possible playing rock (and roll) like if it were always the first time.

They came from different music experiences and it’s so easy identify them in theit album : a fresh mix of new wave, seventies, hardcore, pop and latins rhythms which seems mixed in Chicago.

Two Larkin Grimm songs and a cover of Los Angeles by Old Time Relijun recorded together with Rosolina Mar after having shared the stage for some shows in Italy to present Parplar (Young God Records), rightly recognized as one of the best albums of the year. About her, Michael Gira said:

Larkin is a magic woman. She lives in the mountains in north Georgia. She collects bones, smooth stones, and she casts spells. She worships the moon. She is very beautiful, and her voice is like the passionate cry of a beast heard echoing across the mountains just after a tremendous thunder storm, when the air is alive with electricity. I don’t consider her folk though – she is pre-folk, even pre-music. She is the sound of the eternal mother and the wrath of all women
