Awful, ugly weather in Skopje, it's that moment when it's neither raining nor not raining..something in between, that can only give you a severe headache, I am making my way home from the radio station and sing quietly, but loud enough to make the people who pass me by give me these strange looks..I sing "now it is all oveeeer like the biiirds, now it is all oveeeer....". That maybe has nothing to do with Nothing, but it has to do with thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is the alias of a sweet looking person called Adrian Orange, whose beautiful voice and sensibillity reminds of Cat Power, Smog, Will Oldham... Melancholic, suptle voice, clever lyrics and soothing relaxing guitar backup. A few weeks ago you were able to hear "Now it is all over like the birds" EP on lofidelica, this week's issue was dedicated to his LP called Nothing.
It includes 10 tracks called nothing i.e untitled, and quite short, the total time is less then 30 minutes, which I particularly like about albums like these. Adrian tours with Jona Bechtolt (yacht), who according to this "Is orange birds" compilation booklet, tours with devendra banhart...They both release for marriage records, a small indie label from Portland, that apparently releases music lofidelica likes. Nothing is recorded by Curtis Knapp (who also sings backing vocals) and mastered by Rob Jones. Finally, the cover is quite simple, it features a drawing of a strange creature that looks like a fish, an owl, a vase, it looks like...like nothing.
