From the land of cactus to the land of Sangiovese wine, from California to Romagna (Italy), FATSO JETSON and HERBA MATE have joined together in the split album Early Shapes. It's a mix of desert, stoner, psychedelia, romanticism and thundering visions. The tracks by Herba Mate was recorded at the Go Down Studio in Savignano sul Rubicone, Italy, with a live recording session. This approach is not new for the band. There are 2 instrumental tracks, "Desert Inn I" and "Desert Inn II", and 2 songs singed by Alessandro Trerè, "Dance Dance Dance" and "Way Down". This one is a cover of the Core and it is often performed live by the trio. The tracks of Fatso Jetson have different origins, but all of them are the result of collaborations with friends and musicians from the stoner scene. The first 2 tracks "Living All Over You" and "Long Deep Breath" feature the participation of Mathias Schneeberger (Mark Lanegan, Afghan Whigs, Brant Bjork, Mondo Generator) and Abby Travis (Beck, The Bangles, Eagles Of Death Metal). The 3rd track "Nyquilt" features the participation of the Australian musician and videomaker Adam Harding (DJ Shadow, Lou Barlow, Dinosaur Jr, Melvins). The package is a fine screen print.
Enjoy the desert!
