Umberto, LA's synth overlord is back here in Edinburgh this year on Thursday 1st May and he's returning with a new release on Not Not Fun, a conceptual live-show and a couple of soundtracks.
A true master of the horror film soundtrack aesthetic, Umberto's music is a hypnotic, all-consuming journey, reeling you into a foggy, neon-lit world of graveyards, stalkers, haunted houses, witches and blood-stained corpses. Evoking the unsettling progressive rock of Goblin and the sinister, dystopian synth-work of John Carpenter, his acclaimed releases have garnered considerable praise for their staggering, gothic take on italo disco and new-wave synth pop, recreating the brooding intensity of a Dario Argento soundtrack through the cyclical melodies and throbbing rhythms he shares with his closest contemporaries, Zombi and Gatekeeper.
Last year's show sold out in advance so make sure you get your ticket here asap...
Support act 'The Southern Tenant' Features the founder of Southern Tenant Folk Union Pat McGarvey and other friends in Edinburgh 'The Southern Tenant' takes songs by the aforementioned folk and bluegrass collective and re-imagines them as synth and drum machine led movie themes. A longtime fan of electronic movie composers (like John Carpenter, Vangelis, Fabio Frizzi & Tangerine Dream) Pat McGarvey made his first 'synthwave' recordings in 1996 at home on a Yamaha DX7. The intervening years saw him mostly touring around the world playing Alt country and then bluegrass before forming the Southern Tenant Folk Union in 2006. Recent years have seen that influence brought to bear on the band's albums and now a spin off album of STFU album 6 synth reinterpretations is due for release in spring 2015.
