October 03, 2013, 9:45 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The Italian singer and songwriter known only as Ground and Leaves has released his latest LP record album, titled “Our Moods.” The record is comprised of 12 original tracks for an approximate listening time of 43 minutes. A true independent record release, it faithfully continues the style and tradition of the early indie music artists and marks a place for Ground and Leaves in the annals of modern folk music history.
The sound of Ground and Leaves is warm, natural, and recalls music from artists such as Nick Drake and Bob Dylan. The artist himself cites influences in broad groups, saying, “[I appreciate] folk, indie, country music, and artists like Mason Jennings, Elliot Smith…”
“Our Moods” is mature music for introspective and intelligent listeners, but also calming and soothing atmosphere music, suitable for the home at virtually all hours of the day. To call it “mood music” is entirely appropriate, as the album is very aptly named. It is not all about emotion, however, and the hub of “Our Moods” is the web of intelligent phrases and ideas threaded throughout it.
Concerning the themes and topics of the album, Ground and Leaves writes:
“I write about war, love, life, and hope. Some songs talk about the sadness and frustration in seeing the bad reality that surrounds us, while other songs talk about the beauty around us that we should defend and appreciate more. I don't know if there is a message but I hope to make listeners think about what they've listened to, even if for a little while.”
“Our Moods” is the third offering from Ground and Leaves. “Grain of Sand” appeared in 2012 showcasing Ground and Leaves as a ukelele performer, bearing only two tracks on which he is not accompanied by the island instrument. “The Red Stone” followed in 2013. Both records are available at jamendo.com and may be freely downloaded.
“Our Moods” by Ground and Leaves is available online everywhere.
