about

“Dandelions On Fire”, an unexpected and surprising collaboration born from the remarkable talents of the awesome guitar player Simone Massaron (a great musician at ease with different genres), who wrote the music to the songs and arranged almost everything, and Carla Bozulich, renowned cult artist , who is an amazing lyricist and singer.
Blues, ballads, folk music, improvised moments…all to create a compelling collection of songs and haunting melodies.
The band supporting Simone and Carla is a special one too: Zeno De Rossi on drums is one of the most gifted players emerging out of the new jazz and improvised music scene in Italy. Andrea Viti and Xabier Iriondo have a glorious past as their background with the famous and acclaimed band Afterhours and now move between classic rock and experimental music independently.
Other great musicians also took part to the recording session.


"Dandelions Dn Fire is an Italian project driven by composer and guitarist Simone Massaron, whose connection with Bozulich is presumably via LA guitarist Nels Cline. Opener “Never Saw Your Face” is a lowering two-chord drama with bowed bass and harmonium, and we are broadly in Tom Waits territory. Massaron, whose speciality is fretless guitar, also brings banjo and lap steel, and young Italian drummer Zeno de Rossi is moodily appropriate on brushes and junkyard percussion. Bozulich moves in restrained mode between tender and creepy; her lyrics and vocal performances are great, and because this is not her group she’s careful not to break out and start testifying. Tracks like “Five Dollar Lottery” are hypnotic, grinding riffs full of colour and menace, while for the title track it’s back to the sour sweet of Country: “When you shine, this dandelion’s on fire.”
