Brand new song & video from Nicola Donà AKA Horrible Present. This man can’t write a bad song and that’s why we’ll be releasing more of his music later in the year on Cakes and Tapes.
Horrible Present, “Union Plaza EP”
Another solid release from the amazing pop songs crafter that is Nicola Donà, or Horrible Present. It’s not the first time we’re posting about him and certainly this won’t be the last. These four brand new songs were progressively released in the weeks leading to this release and are now available for free download as a package (grab them on Bandcamp). “April 1944” is my song of the month. I’m glad I live in the same world as Horrible Present.
Horrible Present, “April 1944”
yet another amazing little song from Horrible Present. His latest release is still available on Cakes and Tapes!
April 1944 by Horrible Present
darling let’s stick to the letters exchange
let’s keep all the laughs we didn’t waste
we are still on time
save a bottle of your best wine
we will be fine
down here in the army no one is up to fight
“the war in not charming”
Horrible present, haunted past.
If you run a somewhat high profile site/blog you surely receive dozens of emails per week. Some you don’t even bother to read and throw them in the garbage bin just after reading the headline (sorry), you might find others slightly interesting but not enough to post or there’s not enough time to do it, others contain some great, perfectly bloggable music inside and then there’s this rare sight: a sincere email where only a ten word sentence is written, alongside with a Soundcloud/Bandcamp link pointing to an awesome song performed by some perfectly unknown unsigned artist. This is the kind of email that made me want to start my own label, and this was the case with Horrible Present. “Classics at Night” was instantly gone into repeat mode and a couple of months later his exquisitely titled EP 54, I love you but it’s time to get off - which consists of his old EP 54 plus some new songs and b-sides - was released on our label Cakes and Tapes.
