We Don't Need the Outside
North Pole Records is proud to release Bob Corn's new album 'We don't need the outside' in the United States. Bob Corn is the songwriting vehicle of Tizio Sgarbi, from the rural Italian countryside, and his music reflects the sparseness and beauty associated with a farming life. His soft guitar, tender lyrics, and hopeful songs are filled with longing, hushed harmonies, brushed drums, and broken English. The sound is captivating; with Tizio sounding like a shy Leonard Cohen or a sleepy Bonnie 'Prince' Billy. Bob Corn has kept busy the past few years touring Europe and releasing albums on the Fooltribe label in Italy. We became interested, when Miss Massive Snowflake toured with him in Germany in 2008. The stars have aligned and the fields are fertile. The time is right for Americans to hear what Italians can do with the same tools as us. Help spread the word. -Touring the USA in March and April 2009 -Slipsleeve packaging makes it an inexpensive choice -The follow up to the Bob Corn / Larry Yes split 7' (NPR 10) -Posters, promotional items available.
