MARIANI, DOM -& THE MAJESTIC KELP- HI SEAS (60s surf sounds featuring Dom on guitar) LPSUGARBUSH
Taking its cue and influence from soft '60s surf sounds Dom Mariani's 2018 album also incorporates elements of Lee Hazlewood, Jack Nitzsche and sounds of exotica. Always prevalent, however, is Dom's twangy reverb drenched guitar.
What makes this album stand out are the superb arrangements and an overwhelming air of mystery and wonder. Some of the tracks are so laid back as to be almost soporific but keep the listener hooked and awaiting the next surprising twist.
The album is almost completely instrumental with a few vocals added here and there. Limited to 300 copies.
