VIDEO: New Rocco DeLuca

 

Key track from
recently-released album gets video premiere.

 

By Blurt Staff

 

Very stoked to unveil this new video, “Windows,” from songwriter and
guitar whiz Rocco DeLuca, whose album Drugs
‘N Hymns
we reviewed at BLURT last week. (Our reviewer wrote, in part, that
the record “is a near-masterwork of haunted epistles and luminous meditations
that, powered by his high, keening voice and with his National Steel as
ballast, achieves liftoff after liftoff.”) Check it out:

 

 

 

 

 

 

The new album finds the blues-steeped musician forging a
solo path armed with his National guitar, distinctively emotive voice and 10
reflective, vivid song-stories.  The hypnotically spare compositions
conjure a world of characters seeking a certain solace and salvation while
continually mired in the disturbed darkness. The album was “anti-produced”
by DeLuca and features guests such as the Echo Park
Jubilee Tambo Flower Unsung Heroes Choir. Drugs ‘N Hymns is a fascinating
recording in its quiet intensity, conveying a wide swathe of emotions from
quietude mixed with underlying dread to hopeful exhilaration. DeLuca continues
his striking series of performances in the UK during the month of July supporting
Edward Sharpe the Magnetic Zeros.
