Boomkat Product Review:
Apparently this album, the debut from Chatham-based Pete Molinari, was recorded live in the kitchen of cult artist Billy Childish (with one track even featuring Billy's wife Julie on vocals...). This might also explain the album's hauntingly 'old' quality, in fact when I first popped this in the drive to listen to I wasn't sure whether it was contemporary or not, it has that old time session feel which is so vacant from today's clean and precise recordings. I realise the lo-fi production style is often mimicked, but Molinari's album sounds like the real thing - performed live and recorded badly to give the record a warmth and a spontaneity rarely captured. Molinari has been playing solo for five years now, perfecting his style in the cafes and bars of New York's anti-folk epicentre East Village, and this is maybe how he manages to capture such an accomplished performance. The songs themselves are maybe best compared to Bob Dylan, Nick Drake or at times even Fred Neil - comparing it to anything contemporary would frankly not do it enough justice. 'Walking off the Map' is a hugely enjoyable record and should be lapped up by avid folk/rock fans, sit back and let Molinari sing to you.
