BROTHERSINLAW_HARDTIMES

Un disco lo puoi presentare come una tappa di una biografia, parlando di chi lo ha scritto e registrato. Per esempio, i Brothers In Law sono un gruppo nato a Pesaro nel 2011, hanno pubblicato un paio di EP eccetera.
Oppure, di un disco puoi descrivere i suoni, i rimandi, le influenze. Per esempio, nei Brothers In Law rivivono le chitarre frementi e i riverberi elettrici di certo post-punk inglese Anni Ottanta, più quella sensibilità indiepop che è stata in seguito tramandata e filtrata da etichette contemporanee come la Captured Tracks, giusto per citarne una. Si dovrebbero a questo punto elencare alcuni altri nomi più o meno noti, modelli riconosciuti e via di seguito.
Ma il fatto è che a volte muoversi così non basta. A volte, semplicemente ascoltando il fluire di alcune canzoni, ti accorgi che un disco è anche qualcosa di diverso. Qualcosa di molto più forte, e forse di più semplice. Hard Times For Dreamers è uno di quei dischi che custodisce una somma superiore alla somma delle sue parti. In maniera del tutto naturale, istintiva, i Brothers In Law scavalcano la sterilità di un comunicato stampa o di altre parole, si impadroniscono della musica e diventano i propri eroi musicali dell’adolescenza. Hard Times For Dreamers, con i suoi testi che parlano di cose normali come la periferia, l’innamorarsi e le disillusioni, racconta anche la storia di una band che questi “tempi duri” li attraversa, li piega e va a prendersi i sogni che da sempre ha dentro.

An album can be presented as a passage from a biography, talking about who wrote and recorded it. Brothers In Law, for example, is a band from Pesaro, active since 2011, who has released a couple of EPs. And so on. Or, when discussing an album, you can describe the sounds, the references, the influences. For example, in Brothers In Law’s new album, vivid guitars and electric reverbrs revive certain British post-punk from the eighties, in addition to that indiepop feeling that was later passed down and filtered by labels like Captured Tracks. You should now list some other label and band names more or less known, recognized models and so on.
But the fact is that sometimes it is not enough to talk this way about a new release. Sometimes, simply listening to the flow of some songs, you realize that an album is also something different. Something much stronger, and perhaps simpler. Hard Times For Dreamers is one of those albums that keeps a sum greater than the collection of its parts. In a very natural and instinctive way, Brothers In Law override the sterility of a press release, take control of the sound and become their own musical heroes. Hard Times For Dreamers, with lyrics that discuss normal things like the suburbs, falling in love, and disappointments, also tells the story of a band that goes through these "hard times", folds them, and goes straight for the dreams they have always had inside.

Dear friends,
 
With only 17 days to go, we're close to the half-way mark for our fundraising campaign goal. This is a bit scary, with Musicraiser it's all or nothing. If you don't make your goal, the campaign is cancelled.
 
I'm sending you this just to say that if you are thinking about pledging anyway, maybe you could do so now? Our supporters literally make the "Brothers in Law Goes to SXSW " happen. Your help would mean the world to us.

Cari amici!
con soli 17 giorni di campagna rimanenti siamo vicini alla meta' del nostro obbiettivo. Questo ci mette un poco pressione perche' Musicraiser e' tutto o niente. Se non raggiungi l'obbiettivo la campagna viene cancellata.
Vi mandiamo questo messaggio perche' se pensate che comunque volete partecipare alla campagna, perche' non farlo adesso? Il vostro supporto ci permettera' di realizzare la nostra campagna "Brothers in Law Goes to SXSW". Il tuo aiuto significa tantissimo per noi!

Thanks for your consideration!

"It's a Slow Dance to the top!"

Slow Dance racconta storie attraverso brevi film.

Qualche mese fa ci è capitato di incontrare tre ragazzi, ci hanno raccontato di come da anni portino avanti la loro musica, all'inizio in band diverse, poi finalmente assieme come era giusto accadesse.
Ci hanno parlato di come quello che fanno sia per loro un impegno dal quale non possono e non vogliono sottrarsi.
Nel loro movimento ci siamo ritrovati anche noi di Slow Dance, che allo stesso modo abbiamo accumulato varie esperienze in diversi porti, per poi decidere di imbarcarci insieme nell'avventura di produzioni come questa: belle storie da trovare, filmare e raccontare, con il nostro ritmo e a parole nostre.
Siamo convinti che non ci sia mai un solo modo giusto di proporre quello che vediamo e che ci piace, per questo i nostri interventi possono cambiare completamente a seconda della storia che abbiamo per le mani in quel momento, e delle persone che ne fanno parte.

In questo caso in particolare siamo entusiasti di poter supportare un gruppo come i Brothers in Law: la loro musica è stata la colonna sonora di una delle nostre prime esplorazioni a largo, un ricordo per nulla remoto di come ci piaccia stare a galla insieme

Slow Dance tells stories through short films.

A few months ago, we met three boys. They told us about their music, first in different bands, and the, finally, united as it feels right. They told us how what they do is a commitment for them. One they can't and won't escape from. We, from Slow Dance, saw ourselves in their flow. The way we gathered experience in different harbors before setting sail all together, to produce something like this: nice stories to unearth, shoot and tell, with our pace and in our own words. We believe there's not only one way to tell what we see, to share what we like. Our interventions can utterly change with the story we are handling, with the people that make it what it is.

Here, we are thrilled to support a group like the Brothers in Law: their music was the soundtrack of one of our first journey asea, a constant reminder of how much we love drifting together.

Thanks to you, we're closing in on our goal to raise funds to help Brothers In Law to play at SXSW Festival! With 26 days to go, we've had 21 Raisers and just over €300 in pledges.

Please continue to spread the word about Musicraiser campaign. It's a little scary that we could possibly not make our goal at all, which would mean that all of this would go away ... we don't want that, right?
We are honored to have the support of SLOW DANCE, this Musicraiser campaign couldn't have  happened without them! Here's the 3rd (and last) teaser!


More super exciting things will happen in the next weeks, WHOA!

Love,
WWNBB
