Mubla Na Thguob I bought the vinyl elsewhere (wish it was on Bandcamp), but love Melanie De Biasio's music so much that I bought it again here to put it in the feed. If you're reading this and don't know her work, please stop long enough to at least sample this amazing album. Instant classic status. Favorite track: Your Freedom Is The End Of Me.

morried Found this album through Afro Blue (after finding With All My Love years ago on YouTube). The quiet fragile intensity binds with a riveting intimacy the voice, rhythm and music together. So sensual and powerful, can't wait to see it live! Favorite track: All My Worlds.

thierry_b Discovered by chance on the radio (Afro Blue, thanks to FIP). Melanie is really a wonderful singer/composer and her guests are great interprets too. Each track comes with its specific and mysterious ambiance, silence and sounds in perfect balance. This album is so sweet :=)

about

As Melanie De Biasio explains in her own words; “For me, Lilies has a darkness, but it’s also luminous. After my experiences with (previous releases) 'No Deal' and 'Blackened Cities', I just wanted to retreat to a cave with my Pro-Tools, my computer, and my cheap, 100Euro Shure SM-58 microphone. I could have gone to a big studio, made a big production – but I wanted none of that. I wanted to go back to the seed of creativity, the simplest materials. I was in this room where there was no light, no night or day at all, no heat. Very uncomfortable. But I felt free. I was happy to have this feeling – ‘I don’t need more, I have everything I need here.’”

Lilies resonates with beauty, multi-instrumentalist De Biasio casting a mesmerising shadow over the proceedings alongside her long-term ensemble of players and will undoubtedly once again see her further the acclaim of fans both in Europe and further afield.

Lilies is released through Le Label / Play It Again Sam and will be available digitally, on CD and limited vinyl.
