Diane And The Shell - 30,000 Feet Tarantella
Record Label - Australian Cattle God Records

Who:

Instrumental quartet hailing from Catania, Italy who signed with Australian Cattle God Records in 2006 for the U.S release of 30,000 Feet Tarantella.


How Is It?

If you are an angular music fanatic like I am, 30,000 Feet Tarantella is the sort of instrumental release you have been waiting for. 30,000 Feet Tarantella is an album that shows a fascination for flight, and in addition to sparingly used spoken word pieces, airport sounds are cleverly scattered throughout the albums eleven songs. Although angular math-rock riffs and free form drumming dominate most of the album, there are a few instances where piano and glockenspiel are used to create a truly enthralling instrumental release that seemed to be unfortunately overlooked in 2006. This is a must listen for any fan of angular music and if tracks like “Suite for Bancomat” are any indication, Diane And The Shell will not be overlooked for much longer.

Standout Tracks“India Tango", “Suite For Bancomat”, and “Scandinavian Landing”
