"Company Divine" is the tape version of songs recorded in summer 2011, in "cripta 747", a a long subterranean artspace with arches and columns, located under the Galleria Umberto I in Turin with an impressive natural reverb.
In the five songs, an archaic form of blues meets the most ecstatic psychedelia and enchanting folk whispers.
This tape is the harvest of two days of improvisations with Rella
The Woodcutter and Rob Maggioni, around some songs feeding on devotion.
Nightfall is a cover taken from Incredible String band's The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter.
