Multi-instrumentalist Darby Cicci (age 24) has created a haunting, melodic work in his first full-length solo album, Minus Green. A minus green filter is a photographic filter used to remove the sickening green glow caused by fluorescent lighting. The album has similar themes of personal attempts to filter out nightmares, drug abuse and illness. It meanders through a surreal world of chaotic yet beautiful pop tunes and neurotic, lurid rock songs garnished in trumpet, bowed banjo and distorted rhodes piano.
Brooklyn based Cicci wrote Minus Green mostly from the hours of midnight to 6 AM - obsessively recording and re-recording every instrument on the album alone in his small Brooklyn apartment, using borrowed mics and equipment found on Manhattan sidewalks. He discovered that some of the best things are thrown away on the Upper West Side.
Cicci can also be seen as a member of Brooklyn band The Antlers - playing banjo and trumpet among other instruments.
This song is about hunting a serial killer in the 1800s.
No you're not supposed to take that home with you. Just listen.
It's actually just a big existential metaphor. Or is it even a song?
if you don't sleep for a couple days, everything in reality takes on the general feeling of a dream. If you don't sleep for a week, you can't tell the difference between what is real and what is not.
