Things to Share is the third album for Frozen Farmer, released on May 10th, 2021 by Piesse Groove Records.
Frozen Farmer are active since 2009, when they formed the band out of a visceral love for the american folk tradition, grown during a long trip of Francesco – singer and banjo player – across the States. The first EP, releases at the end of 2011 by Ghost Records / Warner Chapell, didn’t stay unnoticed, and led to several shows and tours. The first full lenght, Stay, released in 2014 by Seahorse Recordings, moved to a more personal sound, with a psychedelic side reminiscent of the Paisley Underground and of Days of Wine and Roses. The single Angels Melody also gained a spot in the Top 100 radio airplays according to Indie Music Like.
Things to Shares comes after years of live experiences, changes in members personal lives, and reveals a definitely contemporary sound, which doesn’t disown the attachment to the folk, rural tradition. As a fil rouge, Frozen Farmer collaborated again with Tim Sparks, american guitarist who has been following the project from the very start. Sparks, who is special guest in two songs of the new album, is known for his works with Tzadik and for his collaboration with John Zorn, Bill Frisell, Marc Ribot and Greg Cohen. Things to Share was recorded at New Art Recording Studio in Saronno, then mixed in Verbania by Pierpaolo D’Emilio at GrooveIt Studio.
The Shore, the first single and video taken from the album, is a serene, positive song, with jingle-jangle guitars and a melodic tune, defining a sound that mixes elements from The Byrds, Green on Red, early REM and Wilco, a must for fans of ’90s indie rock, but also for whoever appreciates a well-written and carefully arranged song.

HYBRID is the debut album for Richard Wølf, stage name for Riccardo Sarti, who in “everyday life” works as actor, performer and voice actor.
Hybrid was born out of his love for music, but also for movies and sound design, both close to cyberpunk and sci-fi aesthetics and sub-cultures.
Not by chance, the album features a cover of one of the most challenging songs ever written, Bowie’s Life on Mars.
Hybrid draws from several kind of sounds, mixing the elegance of Wagner’s inspired classical music, the energy of hard rock and the electronic futuristic approach.
Both songwriting and arrangements were born with cinematografic references in mind, so that the album can be listened as the fictitious soundtrack for a movie, TV series or even a videogame.

RITA TEKEYAN – GREEN LINE
Release date: April 24th, 2021
Label: Seahorse Recordings
Countries: Lebanon/Italy
Genre: darkwave, goth, world music

Facebook // Soundcloud // You Tube // Spotify

Following her album debut, 2015’s Manifesto Anti-War, musician, singer, and performing artist Rita Tekeyan is back with her sophomore full-length follow-up, Green Line, available April 24th through Seahorse Recordings.
Born in Lebanon from Armenian family, Rita is now living in North of Italy, by the Garda’s Lake.

Devil’s OB, the first single, released on April 02nd, is a twisted, witchy, and yet dreamy song about internal conflicts, obsession, desperation, and madness. The video, premièred on New Noise Mag, was shot in the woods by director Enrico Fappani, and creates the atmosphere of a dark fairytale, using symbols, a wicked scenery and the powerful presence of Rita’s gestures and voice, which could remind female artists as Kate Bush, Lydia Lunch or Nina Hagen.
Green Line is dedicated to Beirut, Tekeyan’s native city. ‘Green Line’ was the green linear area on Beirut’s map during the civil war, dividing Beirut by East and West, and it was one of the most dangerous and devastated areas of Beirut.
The images of Beirut in the Green Line album booklet were taken by Rita Tekeyan in post-war Beirut in 2016, in various locations of the Green Line area, as she searched for the hidden traces of war and the deep scars that will never be ereased.

Green Line is a musical project where whispers and silence are as essential as screams. Pieces of memories are put together in a new order, a new dimension, the music dimension, the words dimension; a reconstruction of space and time through music and words, inspired by Deconstructivism and the “Poetics of Space” of French philosopher Gaston Bachelard. Tekeyan’s album is part of the project which focuses on war stories and details, events that are unknown to most people, events that no radio or television program would talk about, events insignificant to the regular eye but huge in the eyes of a child.




Dopo il debutto del 2015, Manifesto Anti-War, la cantante, musicista e performer Rita Tekeyan torna col nuovo album Green Line, disponibile dal 24 Aprile su Seahorse Recordings. Di origini armene ma nata in Libano, Rita è ora residente in Italia, a Desenzano sul Garda.

Devil’s OB, il primo singolo, è stato pubbicato il 02 Aprile. E’ un brano stregato, sofferto, eppur sognante, che racconta di conflitti interni, ossessioni, disperazione e follia. Il video, presentato in anteprima da New Noise Mag, è stato girato nei boschi dal regista Enrico Fappani, e crea l’atmosfera di una favola dark, usando simboli, un paesaggio incantato e la presenza scenica di Rita, dei suoi gesti e della sua voce, che potrebbe ricordare artiste femminili come Kate Bush, Lydia Lunch e Nina Hagen.

Green Line è dedicato a Beirut, la città natale della Tekeyan. La “Green Line” (linea verde) era quell’area lineare segnata sulle mappe col colore verde durante la guerra civile, che divideva Beirut Est da Beirut Ovest, ed era l’area maggiormente pericolosa e devastata della città.
Le immagini di Beirut nel booklet dell’album sono della stessa Rita Tekeyan, scattate nella Beirut post guerra del 2016, alla ricerca di tracce nascoste del conflitto e di cicatrici che non si rimargineranno.
Green Line è un progetto musicale in cui i sussurri e il silenzio sono essenziali come le urla. Pezzi di memoria sono riassemblati in un nuovo ordine, una nuova dimensione, quella della musica e dei versi, che ricostruiscono lo spazio e il tempo. L’ispirazione viene dal Decostruttivismo e dalla “poetica dello spazio” del filosofo francese Gaston Bachelard.

Il lavoro della Tekeyan è parte di un più vasto progetto incentrato sui dettagli delle storie di guerra, su eventi sconosciuti ai più, eventi di cui nessuna radio e televisione parlerà mai, insignificanti agli occhi del pubblico e della Storia, ma immensi agli occhi di un bambino che, come Rita, è cresciuto in un Paese in guerra.
