Anzio Green arrive on Rednetic after their debut release "Autumn Honey" on Symbolic Interaction (Funckarma, The Retail Sectors).

After the debut release where Wil and Mark worked on their parts separately in New Zealand and the UK, the new album removes that distance. Working in Wil's studio in Liverpool the pair drew on their love of late 80s/early 90s guitar music Lush, The Cure, Slowdive, Jesus and Mary Chain and Snub TV. Clear evidence of this can be heard on the track Fall Down with vocals by Kate Tustain (Laska and collaboratively as Innerise), the nearest to Pop rednetic has ever been. As a counterbalance to the liaison with pop there are more experimental tracks such as Tall Grass and End of an Error with a nod to acts such as Tim Hecker and Fennesz.

While the first album was very much of a New Zealand vibe this is very much the UK, with London and Liverpool playing a major role. Only the last track "Never Go Back" returns to NZ, with the foundations beginning one evening close to Tennyson Inlet in the north of the South Island, completing the journey that began with the first album.

Reviews

The CD Critic

"simply enjoyable."

"The whole album even seems to defy conventional genre classification from time to time. It is perhaps an electronic record, but there's much more at play than just typical electronic ideas."

"4/5"

Ambient Blog

"'Fall Down' (with vocals by Kate Tustain) is a mysterious pop-oriented track that reminisces the sound of the 4AD label"

"different moods and atmospheres without becoming 'arty for the sake of it'."

"for real 'ambientheads' this is a most rewarding album"

The Sunday Experience

"we fell headlong in adoration of the teaser track 'fall down'"

"Blending ambient structures, atmospheric landscapes, dreamy lullabies, drone dialects, the occasional shoe gaze and a liberal side serving of dub accents, listening wise ¬Ďa day without distance' is best experienced in a quiet place preferably in the still of the night with the volume cranked up, that way you can submerge yourself in its panoramic purr."

"subtle seduction of Cocteau-ian bliss"

Music Won't Save You

C'è un confine ben più sottile di quanto si possa pensare tra rarefazioni ambientali e sognanti modulazioni chitarristiche. Ultima prova del teorema dimostrato da una lunga serie di artisti che va da Jon Attwood a Ulrich Schnauss, passando per Fennesz, può considerarsi il secondo capitolo della collaborazione transoceanica tra Wil Bolton (Cheju, The Ashes Of Piemonte, Ashlar) e il neozelandese Mark Streatfield (Zainetica). Le emozionali partiture ambientali del primo e le vivaci pulsazioni elettroniche del secondo tornano a incontrarsi nel progetto Anzio Green a ben cinque anni di distanza dal debutto "Autumn Honey".

Frutto più di un lavoro in studio svoltosi in Inghilterra che di asettici scambi di file a migliaia di chilometri di distanza, i nove brani di "A Day Without Distance" non si limitano a disegnare immaginari scenari elettronici sul crinale tra ambient e idm, bensì dischiudono prospettive di vago sapore "pop" all'interazione tra scie sintetiche, ritmiche pervasive e dense torsioni chitarristiche.

In tal senso, l'ora di durata del lavoro appare in maniera decisa una sorta di omaggio all'universo dream-shoegaze di riverberi e feedback policromi, filtrati attraverso sensibilità digitali ma non per questo alieni da riflessi di fragile e sognante romanticismo. Se i vocalizzi di Kate Tustain su "Fall Down" e le espanse tonalità della title track si atteggiano quali vere e proprie declinazioni aggiornate al tempo presente delle coinvolgenti cascate chitarristiche degli anni Novanta britannici, via via nel corso dell'album riescono distinguibili i profili dei due artisti, bilanciati in estatiche contemplazioni vivacizzate da pulsazioni cadenzate, ovvero separatamente esplicati in sinuose derive ambientali (si vedano gli oltre dieci minuti di "Tall Grass") o in ventagli di sciabordanti saturazioni e battiti più pronunciati ("Sunset Solitude", "Thunderstorm").

L'equilibrio tra le sensibilità dei due artisti riesce comunque a sintetizzare una propria autonoma definizione espressiva, resa emblematica dagli otto minuti della conclusiva "Never Go Back", ultima cartolina dai riflessi purpurei, sulla quale Bolton e Streatfield hanno impresso un messaggio di continuità tra linguaggi sonori solo in apparenza distinti da coordinate temporali e di "genere".
