December Hung Himself's music is enchanting and nocturnal. "Audiofollia.it" / November 2013
DHH are Aurora Atzeni, born in Cagliari (Italy), in 1986 and Nicola Olla, born in Iglesias (italy) in 1987. They both started playing guitar as children before becoming involved by rock music performing in several bands such as Drought, Thank U For Smoking, Charun, and many more. DHH’s debut ep “Ivory” (out in 2013) was a modern songwriting album, driven by gentle airy guitars and soft percussions, where the two voices meet to create dreamy soundscapes. Influenced by electronic, modern and contemporary classical music and shoegaze they slowly evolved their compositions recording in late 2016 an entire soundtrack album called “Perseidi”, out in January 2017.
The italian duo founded by Aurora Atzeni (singer and guitar player in Thank U For Smoking) and Nicola Olla (guitar player in Drought, Charun) are today releasing a soundtrack album, born from the naturalistic event "Perseidi" in Sardinia (Italy). On 10 August every year, during the perseids meteor shower, the band plays an acoustic set in beautiful specific locations such as Domus De Janas, nuragic necropolises and Nuraghe houses. These songs reassume the last years performances through an electriconic-oriented approach.

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
