Giardini Di Miro
Dividing Opinions
 
Italian Post-Rock. Doesn’t that sound like a nice concept? More Reykjavic than Raviolle however, five-piece Giardini Di Miro have seemingly disregarded any continental heritage,so exact is their imitation of the cold musical sensibilities of their Brit counterparts.
Individual merit arrives with instrumental centrepiece ‘A Guide to rebellion’, redefining existential despair and the first in a run of four impressive tracks on the back of which GDM can be safely recommended worthy game for purists. Out of remote tension and subtle melodic texturing will often emerge genuine shimmery power and well, more tension. The signature maze of guitars will then take us to the ends of the earth and that nice hit of vague post-rock emotional transcendence.

Complete and occasionally exceptional but rarely more than derivative in a genre conceived to shun duplication.
