SRR003 Joe Cardamone “QUARENTINA”

Joe Cardamone (formerly of infamous punks The Icarus Line) returns with his second solo offering: the soundtrack to his film series QUARENTINA. An album born 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 weeks.  An exercise in immediacy and minimalism, the album is sparing with its instrumentation but not its intimacy. This is the most stripped down, raw and vulnerable Joe Cardamone has ever sounded on record.
