Notes

"Company Divine" is the tape version of songs recorded in summer 2011, in "cripta 747", a a long subterranean artspace with arches and columns, located under the Galleria Umberto I in Turin with an impressive natural reverb.
In the five songs, an archaic form of blues meets the most ecstatic psychedelia and enchanting folk whispers.
This tape is the harvest of two days of improvisations with Rella
The Woodcutter and Rob Maggioni, around some songs feeding on devotion.
Nightfall is a cover taken from Incredible String band's The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter.

This episode of “Gimme some inches” start from the tapes, just to demonstrate that cassette doesn’t seem a fad. BeMyDelay with her “Company Divine” opens the catalog of the newly born Kitchen Leg, label based in Berlin and managed by another name for the enlarged family of Boring Machines, DuChamp. Returning to BeMyDelay, the tape should be seen as a little “back in time”, temporally located in between her debut and the withdrawal of the folkish “Hazy Lights”. The tape resumes in fact the tracks recorded in 2011 at Cripta747 in Turin and sees Marcella accompanied by two Eternal Zio (Rella and Roberto Maggioni). That means, archaic forms of blues-folk in hypnotic-minimal mode, but also sensitivity psych and often acid, ready to shoot out waves of old-fashion LSD (Morning After Night). Pagan and dreamy, features also “Nightfall”, a cover of the Incredible String band. In a word, excellent.
