Evripidis and His Tragedies - Mia Triti Stin Cantina LP
Limited LP, red vinyl sleeve + folded poster with artwork by Evripidis and greek lyrics."Mia Triti stin Cantina" (A Tuesday at Cantina) is the long-awaited fourth LP by Evripidis and His Tragedies, the first to be sung in Greek and recorded exclusively with greek musicians, offering another dimension to this dynamic and talented artist.This collection of songs mixes pain, humor and tenderness, traversing the various states of mind that lead him to accept a tragedy of his own. Evripidis returns to Athens, his hometown, in order to confront the death of his closest friend and attempts to address this painful chapter and fit it in his particular conception of life and art.Evripidis asks profound questions about grief, life and death, about mortality and loss while the greek summer, carelessly and paradoxically, abounds with life all around him.Indie pop, electro pop or classic piano music have a place in this record, one that pays a tribute to the music that Evripidis grew up to, fell in love to, found consolation in and indeed danced along to with his late friend. In his usual list of influences those who shine more than ever are figures of greek music like Manos Hantjidakis, Arleta, Zoe Kurukli, Alexia, Stereo Nova or Attic. Thanos Kosmidis, a talented multi-instrumentalist took the helm, and is responsible for the arrangements and the production.
