painting petals on planet ghost

"Second full-lenght album from Italy's Painting Petals On Planet Ghost, aka Maurizio & Roberto Opalio (My Cat Is An Alien) and vocalist Ramona Ponzini. 'Fallen Camellias' is a tribute to one of the greatest poetess ever, Japanese Yosano Akiko, whose work in literature in the early 1900's is considered as manifesto of the Japanese Romanticism. Imagine a Vashti Bunyan or a early Marianne Faithful singing sweet melodies in Japanese language, and you can have an idea of the musical and poetical universe of Painting Petals On Planet Ghost...The songs of 'Fallen Camellias' are built on acoustic guitar melodies and are made of the same pure, melancholic essentiality of the legendary Nick Drake... In the heart of winter covered by snow, let 'Fallen Camellias' be your warm blanket, as well as the promise of a new future spring. Here's a special Painting Petals On Planet Ghost's dedication: 'For those who drink the wine of love springtime is forever'." a silent place
