ORIG. RELEASED ON CASSETTE via TVEI, Dec 11 2016
tvei.bandcamp.com/album/christmas-drone-for-the-sad-and-lonesome

"(...) Dino Spiluttini returns with a solo tape, Christmas Drone for the Sad and Lonesome (not to be confused with Christmas Drones for the Sad and Lonesome, self-released in 2015). At once ambitious and restrained, this single track embodies snowy, seasonal contemplation over fifty minutes.

The cultural pressures of Christmas, wherever in the world they are found, are substantial and numerous. Chiefly, we regard it positively as a festival of warmth, charity, affection and rituals of togetherness that reinforce bonds within families. Not everyone can or will connect with these themes, which pervade everyday life relentlessly throughout the midwinter period. It's to those without close families or friends, or to those otherwise isolated from others, for all kinds of reasons, that this release is dedicated.

With softened textures and extremely gradual structural changes, Spiluttini's piece suggests a landscape in an ambiguous winter night, beheld from the other side of a window or by cold-numbed senses. Or put briefly, Christmas Drone for the Sad and Lonesome is a drone, dedicated to the sad and lonesome. At Christmas."

-Edward Trethowan, TVEI
