We like mp3 but vinyl is our first love. Thus some very limited 12” vinyls with gatefold jackets are now available. Let’s hope it’ll be a collector’s item before too long.  You can order them on BigCartel for 12€ + shipping costs (if you are in Rome, Italia or Berkeley, California and want to save on shipping costs get in touch).

DUMBO GETS MAD:

Dumbo Gets Mad emerged in the summer of 2010 in Northern Italy and has now migrated to Los Angeles. His initial aim was to lay down some marvelous music in an organic manner, open to whatever direction the tunes took during the recording session. The first published track was Plumy Tale, which received positive reviews from a number of music blogs. Dumbo then decided to work on a debut album with an express goal and spirit in mind: “No matter what it sounded like, it had to be psychedelic!”

The result, Elephants At The Door, drops today. The album was recorded sans fancy technology, using old-fashioned equipment like analog synthetizers and tape machines—and lots of good vibes. (from Dossier Journal)

Reviews:

  • The Needle Drop [8/10] : “Think of it as Flying Lotus’s Cosmogramma from a psych rock perspective.”
  • SlantMagazine [4/5] : “Elephants at the Door is an inspiring victory of DIY determination”
  • Coke Machine Glow – Marmelade Kids track review: “This is probably the most potent free psychedelia you can have without growing your own peyote.”
  • LoudVision [9/10]: “You can call it post-Loveless shoegaze, lo-fi or dreampop. We simply define it wonder.”
  • Joe Tangari (Senior Contributing Writer at Pitchfork) : “Great psych band from Italy – Plumy Tale made my Pitchfork top 50 last year”.
  • Redefine Magazine: “The ability to change pace and still sound coherent is what makes the album so satisfying.” (Erik Burg)
  • NPR Song of the Day: Dumbo Gets Mad – Marmelade Kids
