Elsa Tootsie and the Mini Band
Bei dem österreichischen Trio Elsa Tootsie and the Mini Band treffen komplexe, vielschichtige Sounds auf ausdrucksstarkes Songwriting und ungewöhnliche Arrangements. Elsa Tootsie (Gitarre, Gesang), Artur Nutz (Lapsteel Gitarre) und Michael Prehofer (Schlagwerk) wandeln dabei auf den Spuren solch eigensinniger Musiker wie Syd Barret, Karen Dalton, Rowland S. Howard oder Swans, lassen sich aber schwer einem gängigen Genre zuordnen.
Um ihre Musik zu beschreiben, leihen sie sich ungeniert einen Begriff aus der amerikanischen Literatur: Country Noir. Eine außergewöhnlich akzentuierte, rohe und raue Mischung aus düsteren Melodien und aufrichtiger Folk-Litanei.
Imposant und unwiderstehlich.

Mimes of Wine
Mimes of Wine is the project founded in 2007 by singer and pianist Laura Loriga, born in Bologna and now active between Italy and New York (after several years in Los Angeles). Among her main collaborations are those with Giardini di Miro‘, composer Leonardo de Bernardini, and producer Adam Moseley (all still ongoing in different forms). Laura’s writing is based on her two instruments, as well as organs and harmonium, and it is
enriched by sounds provenient by different corners of the world (dan bau, nychekharpa, and more) as well as electrical elements. The result is a series of dark, variegated and cinematic compositions, whose roots belong both to folk and classical tradition as well as to experimentation and research.
After their first album (Apocalypse sets in, Midfinger Recordss/Warner Chappell, 2009), Mimes of Wine have released their second work at the end of 2012 (Memories for the Unseen, Urtovox Records) with a stable lineup composed by Stefano Michelotti (poliinstrumentalist), Matteo Zucconi (upright bass, electronics) and Luca Guglielmino (electric guitar), recently joined also by Max Messina (drums). Mimes of Wine have recently released their third record, La Maison Verte (October 2016). Currently, they are touring in Italy and working on new material.
