Dom Mariani and the Majestic Kelp - Turn Up The Sun
Also from Majestic Kelp::    Various   Associated:    Dom Mariani (Solo): Various   DM3:  Various Releases   DomNicks: Various   Stems: Various
After a 7 year wait Dom Mariani and The Majestic Kelp are back and proud to announce the release of their long- anticipated third album, Turn Up The Sun.

Turn Up The Sun sees Dom Mariani and long-time Kelp cohort Stu Loasby combine their love of surf drenched West Coast tones to arrive with a simply beautiful set of tunes that sparkle and glisten.

The album’s 13 tracks of layered and irresistible melodies evoke summer days and balmy oceanic nights with a knowing nod to movie soundtrack maestro, Ennio Morricone, where the inspired instrumentation and psychedelic leanings were hinted at on the Kelp’s previous albums, Underwater Casino and Music To Chase Cars By.

This album also features exceptional guest musicians including Grammy award winning pedal steel wizard Lucky Oceans; former Riptides bassist Howard Shawcross; guitarist, Peter Leveson Gower (Sonpsilo Circus); and Hank Marvin side man, Nunzio Mondia; these talented players add another dimension to Turn Up The Sun.

Going Back To Surf City opens the album in classic surf instrumental style neatly followed by the sunshine pop vocal harmonies of the title track and the lovely and wistful Where in the World. Unlike previous Kelp albums where the songs were predominantly instrumental, Turn Up The Sun sees Dom using his voice to great effect, as evidenced on these tracks and at the end of the epic soundtrack themed Silver Sea.

Smoke Signals and The Ghost of Boobalooba Beach sees The Kelp take a walk along isolated desert highways and windswept beaches to arrive at the latino beach party groove of Meninas Do Sol and around the globe to the duelling clash of cultures in Bollywood and Western.

Climb on board the golden galleon that is The Majestic Kelp and let the music sail you to a destination unimagined as the sounds wash over you. Turn Up The Sun really is a soundtrack to summer.
