In October of 2010, Giovanni Civitenga aka My Dry Wet Mess released his debut album Irrational Alphabet through Daedelus’ Magical Properties imprint. At the time, Civitenga resided in Barcelona and the album is as breezy and carefree as the Mediterranean climate it was produced in. Nowadays, Civitenga makes his home in Berlin and his sound has changed accordingly. “Berlin Stereo Hands” is the title track of MDWM’s sophomore effort, set to be released on November 13 via Brainfeeder. The track shows Civitenga with a renewed focus, juxtaposing live guitar with zipping electronic noises. The percussion is more steely and complex than anything on Irrational Alphabet, resulting in a sound Civitenga calls “future nostaliga”. Stream below and head over to XLR8R for a free download.
