King Of Corns 2LP (Gatefold)
Infraction 66 / USA / 2014
After the melancholic winter views of Coniglio's previous albums, the folk guitar and harmonica of King of Corns leans to a bucolic scenario that brings with it the feel of a tragedy. The Laughing Stock feel of "Bird's Eye", where the piano of Elisa Marzorati draws a reference touch more to Harold Budd. One might be amazed at discovering such a melodic sensibility by an artist who normally works with natural sounds: in logic, however, just the gift of giving musicality or narrative power to living matter gives meaning to the spontaneous instrumental writing of Coniglio and his "orchestrator" qualities. In this classic elegance, "King Of Corns" exerts on the listener a caressing and sweet-hearted seduction, which in dark colors often and willingly are opposed. A precarious and sublime balance that is precisely of the poetic form.
