Marco Lippini – Acceptable Theories: Sex Appeal and Sun-Soaked Romance!

Well, well, well!

Marco Lippini is that guy! He is the guy that stands in front of a microphone, plugs in, and keeps you mesmerised for an hour in a darkened room without breaking a sweat. No bells, no whistles, no antics required. ‘Acceptable Theories’ is an album that is bound to keep you transfixed. His vocals are raw and honest, reminiscent of Jim Morrison at the height of his career, and his songwriting skills are superb.

Each song is eerily enchanting and his stories are weaved in a complex but pleasing way. Like The Smiths, his thoughts are often delivered satirically, without detracting from his powerful and heartwarming message. Mastery always seems effortless and Marco Lippini’s laid back, drawling storytelling is classically understated whilst remaining musically pure and impeccable.

‘Acceptable Theories’ is a timeless treasure that oozes sex appeal and languid, sun drenched romance. It isn’t often that you find an album of songs that flows so well that you don’t feel the need to skip some songs but, you can rest assured, there will be no need for your thumb to hover!

Listen to ‘Acceptable Theories’ by Marco Lippini on Spotify and have fun. Let us know what you think.

Living Shape Releases Hard Hitting Rock Track “Nirwana”

Living Shape is an alternative rock band from Zurich, Switzerland.

Their sound is hard-hitting, no-frills and no-compromise alternative rock. The tone of the band is really captivating and interesting.

If I could describe it by making comparisons, I would say that their recent single, “Nirwana”, almost sounds like Jim Morrison fronting The Foo Fighters, jamming with members of Metallica.

The track is a great example of the band’s eclectic influences. The guitar tones of the group tip the hat at the early metal sound of the 70s, learning lessons from bands such as Metallica or Judas Priest. The vocals are present, really cutting through the mix perfectly. On the other hand, the drums are dense and thick, echoing the best early stoner rock and grunge. In spite of the band’s rocking attitude, there is also a lot of melody in this track, making it appealing to a broad pool of listeners.

The band recently even took to Youtube to release a brand new music video for their single, which showcases the band jamming in various locations in an abandoned old mansion!
