With Love

A Great Circle (CD + DVD)

Label: Gold Standard Laboratories

Format: CD + DVD

Genre: Experimental

In stock


GSL is pleased to announce the debut U.S. release from Italian quartet With Love, "A Great Circle." Since the late 90s, With Love has been a constantly evolving presence on the Italian DIY scene. The past few years have seen the group mutate from the all-out thrash/hardcore of their early EPs to a more experimental and abstract variety of sounds, informed by the likes of Liars, Men's Recovery Project, Black Dice, etc. Meanwhile, vocalist Nico Vascellari has pursued a rapidly accelerating career in visual and performance art. A Great Circle represents the intersection of both his music and his previously more highbrow-oriented art. The CD portion of "A Great Circle" is a 32-minute album composed and performed by With Love; the accompanying region-free DVD is a 32-minute film by Vascellari. Combining evocative images of nature and a playful, surreal approach to the band's live performance, a Great Circle is an ambitious and challenging accomplishment that has already been acknowledged by sectors of the art world at large. As well as presenting the film at a variety of gallery and museum events in Italy (receiving praise in the Italian language version of Rolling Stone, amongst others), Vascellari has also begun presenting it stateside at events in New York. With Love perform as part of these presentations, and will tour the U.S. (with YEAR FUTURE) upon the album's release. Standard DVD Case.
