Calicoco - Float

We completely missed this album when it was released back in July of 2018, which is unfortunate since this might have made my top 10 of 2018. I discovered this album last week when Nova One posted about the drummer for her current tour, Calicoco, and urged people to check out her album from last year. Float immediately blew me away. The first thing you'll notice is Giana Caliolo's vocals. They have this quality that's part 60's crooner and part just otherworldly. You get songs that have a modern indie folk/rock feel, but that slowly build into an almost 90's indie rock noise burst towards the end. One of the standouts on the album is "Stay for a While." It starts off as a not quite folk, not quite rock song, but with a swirling guitar building just beneath the surface. About two thirds in the crashing drums and fuzzy guitars come in. It's not a complete change of sound or pace, just a bizarro world version of the same song you started listening to. This is an album that I wished we didn't miss, but better late than never.

You can watch the video for "Stay for a While" below. Float is available now via Dadstache Records. You can pick up your digital copy on Bandcamp and a physical one through Dadstache Records. For more on Calicoco, follow them on Facebook.
