Remastered mid-price CD edition of Nosound’s breakthrough second album featuring a collaboration with Tim Bowness (No-Man) and 4 bonus tracks. Started as a one-man studio project in 2005 by multi-instrumentalist Giancarlo Erra before evolving then into a full band, Nosound inventively combines influences from ‘70s psychedelia, ‘80s/’90s ambient, soundtracks, contemporary alternative and post-rock. The music is evocative and intense with personal songwriting and uses a variety of vintage and modern electronic instruments. Influences range from Pink Floyd to Brian Eno, from Radiohead to Sigur Ros, passing through rock and electronic music. Following the release of the band’s new minimal sound on their latest release, ‘Allow Yourself’, Giancarlo Erra is remastering and reissuing past albums on Kscope, now including the band’s breakthrough second album ‘Lightdark’. Recorded in Italy, England and the US throughout 2006 and 2007, ‘Lightdark’ developed the promise of debut album ‘Sol29’ and exhibited a stronger group identity, revealing a greater contrast between atmospheric detail and the walls of sound created by the band on stage.
