  The Star Pillow | “Music For Sad Headbangers” | Midira Records | 2019
The Star Pillow es el alias del italiano Paolo Monti quien desde 2012 ha sacado varios discos en sellos como Time Released Sound, Taverna y este es el segundo que se edita de Monti en Midira Records, después de “Invisible Summer” en 2016 y de “Hidden” en 2018, con la colaboración del artista sonoro italiano Giulo Aldinucci. Monti con su guitarra y sintetizadores propone cinco temas que combinan ambient, experimental y acercamientos al post-rock. De los cinco temas que comprende este álbum, el primero de ellos, “Bruno Martino is my Tom Araya”. Bruno Martino fue un connotado cantante italiano de los ’60 que Monti lo considera como el destacado guitarrista y líder de la banda de metal Slayer. Por ello se aprecian riff de guitarra que despliegan distorsión que ponen la nota irrumpidora en este disco. “Departures” es una pieza con bellas líneas de sintetizadores ambientales que serpentean el espacio generando una atmósfera plácida y acogedora. En “Circle of Events” predominan los finos y temblorosos acordes de la guitarra eléctrica que se esparce y penetra en la oscuridad con un drone de “Moving Grey”. “Sad Headbanger”, el ultimo tema, teje lánguidos acordes electrizantes que se descargan con furiosidad. Monti nos ofrece distintos matices entre el ruido y la calma, la melancolía y la dicha.

The Star Pillow is the moniker of Italian artist Paolo Monti who since 2012 has a string of releases on labels like Time Released Sound, Taverna and now is the second one released on Midira Records, after "Invisible Summer" in 2016 and " Hidden "in 2018, with the collaboration of Italian sound artist Giulo Aldinucci. Monti with his guitar and synthesizers proposes five songs that combine ambient, experimental and approaches to post-rock. Of the five songs in this album, the first one, "Bruno Martino is my Tom Araya" is quite disruptive with a guitar riff that show distortion which is the breaking note on this album. Bruno Martino was a renowned Italian singer of the '60s who Monti considers as the outstanding guitarist and leader of the metal band Slayer. "Departures" is a piece with beautiful ambient synthesizers lines that meander the space generating a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere. On "Circle of Events" the thin and trembling chords of the electric guitar predominate and penetrates the darkness with a drone on "Moving Gray" that ends with a noisy guitar. “Sad Headbanger”, the final track, weaves languid electrifying chords that unload furiously. Monti offers us different nuances between noise and calm, melancholy and bliss.
