Taken from Boring Machines BM059‘s statement: “Everest Magma is the latest incarnation of the hypher-profilic man behind Rella the Woodcutter, that has already a number of releases on our label. In recent years he put aside his pshych-folk attitude and put his hands on a bunch of machines, tape recorders and pedal effects. Recorded in the solitary Summer of 2014, while all the neighborhood was on vacation, Modern / Antique is the first set of tracks of the multifaceted spectrum of sounds he was willing to study. Raw loops of almost broken circuitry, semi-danceable beats are sometimes interrupted by more meditative and spacey moments or disturbed by stretched and unintelligible vocals. Modern/Antique is released in 300 units of black vynil, sleeves printed by Legno.” Another Everest Magma record is coming later on this year on Boring Machines. Stay tuned!
“The Everest Magma show was very touching: the Barcsòn Vècc venue, softly illuminated by the sun, was the perfect scenario for the dreamy and noisy live set. The profound inner sensibility of Rella pops out with the same intensity throughout EM compositions, whose shift of language – moving from a minimal blues/psych songwriting in favour of a machines-driven experience – leaves unchanged the dominant role of the vocals in form of samples and non-sense phrases.”

PAYNOMINDTOUS is a non-profit organization registered in December 2018, operating since late 2015 as a webzine and media website. In early 2017, we started our own event series in Turin, IT focused on arts, experimental, and dancefloor-oriented music. We reject every clumsy invocation to “the Future” meant as the signifier for capitalistic “progress” and “innovation”, fully embracing the Present instead; we renounce any reckless and ultimately arbitrary division between “high” and “low”, respectable and not respectable, “mind” and “body”; we support and invite musicians, artists, and performers having diverse backgrounds and expressing themselves via variegated artistic practices.
