2018 - Sperimentale, Elettronica, Alternativo


Un titolo dai diversi significati che gioca con la parola ‘’Radio’’, che rimanda all’infanzia di Paliki. Il quale da bambino, giocava con le frequenze di una radio, spostandosi così, con l’immaginazione, da una parte all’altra del mondo. ‘’Radiornot’’ gioca anche con la pronuncia in inglese, e pone una domanda: are you ready or not? Spesso si indugia, a volte per troppo tempo, invece di prendere una decisione. Infine ‘’Radio’’, inteso come mezzo attraverso il quale la musica arriva agli ascoltatori. Molte volte chi fa musica si lascia condizionare da cosa sia più o meno passabile in radio, fino a svilire le proprie idee musicali. Paliki invece, almeno fino ad ora, fa musicalmente quello che gli pare. Questa è la sua idea di indipendenza.
This project owes its existence to the peninsula, named Paliki, on the Greek island of Kefalonia.
During a vacation, Naples-based multi-instrumentalist Mariano Falisio (previously Lads Who Lunch) is so struck by the unique clash of wilderness, beauty and abandonment that the island has to offer, that he starts to record nature sounds around him: cicadas and sea waves, but also, thanks to an old Grundig radio from the '70s, radio stations from all over the world, noises and voices.
Armed with his trusted Telecaster guitar, a Fender Mustang bass, a Yamaha RX5 drum machine and percussions, Mariano puts together a multifaceted set of songs that take cues from the likes of TV On The Radio, Prince, Suicide, The Cure, Animal Collective and Gang of four, while putting his unique twist on things.
The album title, playing with the word “radio”, has several layers of meaning. Firstly, a reference to Mariano's childhood: he used to play with an old radio, travelling all around the world with his imagination.
The trick on words “Radiornot” also asks a question: are you ready or not? People often linger too long before taking a decision.
Finally, “radio”, as a means through which music is delivered to listeners. Sometimes artists are so keen to produce something supposedly radio-friendly, to eventually sell out. Paliki, on the other hand, doesn't compromise. This is his idea of independence.
