LP - Giobia - Magnifier
"Giobia celebrate an intense neo-psychedelic-rock, who is deeply inspired by the sound of the late sixties. Next to Guitars, Bass, Drums and Organ they use Sitar, Bouzuki, vintage Keyboards and Effects to create a colourful and swirling sound. Their vocals are often in the background to produce a more far out atmosphere. All that filled with love and passion for their music. A very tasty album and a true highlight. The new album Magnifier is ready to suck you into a lysergic vortex of exotic mantras and Sabbathian rituals. The sound of the new album is heavier and darker than the past records, but always unique, and at some moments will reveal the intimate bond that we've always had with the '70s Italian progressive. Giobia has been one of the most influential psychedelic bands in Italy over the last years. Seduced by the lysergic side of the '60s, by exotic mantras and the evocative power of space-rock, Giobiais a band from Milano, Italy with many facets and one only faith, that is to turn every encounter with sound into a psychedelic experience. Giobia - comes from an ancient pre-Christian festivity celebrated in Northern Italy when a big straw puppet resembling a witch is burnt as a propitiatory ritual towards the forces of nature. All Song written, arranged & performed by Giobia."
