We’re so excited to announce we’ll be releasing the upcoming new album from Joe Cardamone: the soundtrack to his ongoing film series QUARENTINA. Dropping on June 1st across all digital and streaming platforms as well as on limited edition 180 gram oxblood marble vinyl, QUARENTINA finds the former Icarus Line frontman at his most vulnerable and intimate.
The project was born out of a necessity for distraction and expression. A global pandemic. A city in lockdown. The end of a relationship. A life chopped up into parts. Out of this chaos emerged these uncut gems: nineteen songs about love and pain. Recorded in a flurry of home studio sessions with tracks dubbed in one or two takes just to grab the moment, not think, and keep flying, QUARENTINA, was completed in a matter of a weeks. An exercise in immediacy and minimalism, the album is sparing with its instrumentation but not its intimacy.
The first two singles “Lisbon” and “Yeshua” are streaming everywhere rad music streams now and we’ll be announcing the vinyl pre-order soon (watch this space for it)… New episodes of the film series starring Joe and Queen Kwong premiere every Sunday on Youtube and Buddyhead.com… Catch up on chapters 1 – 11 now !
