So I have been working on a website to coincide with my newest record “Power” for quite sometime. Between a combination of learning the technical skills to do it in school and being super busy all the time with Holy Page stuff I finally am able to present it to you! So yeah go ahead and click on the photo to re route to it or go check it out and get your zen on. It’s an online crystal garden for meditation.
Good Amount // Power
Christian Filardo is one righteous dude who really refuses to be pinned down. It was only around a month ago that he released his quite excellent album In a Quiet Way under the name Good Amount. Even though it was his second album under that moniker, Christian managed to completely reinvent Good Amount’s sound to blog acclaim. Rather than rest on his laurels though, he pushed onward to yet another album and once again turned Good Amount on its head with Power.
The difference between In a Quiet Way and Power are immediately recognizable. Where In a Quiet Way experimented with the gap between his previously vocal based compositions and glitchy electronics, Power obliterates the flood gates (heh, that rhymed) and really lets Christian’s creativity run wild. And while Good Amount has always been pretty much synonymous with atmosphere, the lengthy droning pieces on Power feel like thunderous vibrations from another world sent coursing through your body. Nothing is held back and it is all just thrown onto the canvas and allowed to drip and run into itself creating a living world of bleeding colors. If you are into drone then I highly suggest checking it out. You can download it for free on his bandcamp.
By the way, Christian is one of the hardest working dudes in the blogosphere. In addition to Good Amount, he also runs his own digital/cassette label Holy Page, he’s an amazing visual artist as seen on Habitual Glory, and he also (most recently) runs a music blog called Suave Citation with his brother Thomas Filardo.
