Antonio :: Breeze (Smashing Tape)

The overarching style comes from the pits of punk, a mechanized revolt of pistons and gravel. Yet there are softer moments lurking under those creaking sounds, warm keys cutting through the oil soaked gears. Tough, true, but there’s also a tender edge that counters, and compliments, the harshness. Antonio Barbetta has had a very successful […]
