Here She Comes EP Cover art

The April 2016 batch of Fruits de Mer singles contains a release by a new FdM artist Claudio Cataladi from Palermo in Sicily. Claudio is a singer-songwriter who combines acoustic guitar and electronics in his recordings. On his first FdM release he includes a cover of Lou Reed’s “Here She Comes Now” and three original tunes. No FdM release is complete without at least one cover tune and Claudio does an excellent job with the Reed’s song from the second Velvet Underground album. The original was a simple song and arrangement. Claudio’s reinterpretation is a bit more trippy / dreamy with a slightly darker edge. And the meaning of the song is no clearer today than when it was first recorded. The second song is “All My Friends Are Here,” a brand new song with acoustic guitar and heavily reverbed electric guitar that creates a wistful dark folk atmosphere. The other two songs, “Final” and “Ropes and Strings,” are from Claudio’s back catalog. “Final” is similar in style to “All My Friends Are Here,” while “Ropes and Strings” is a bluesy acoustic folk instrumental that sounds like it has some harmonium thrown in towards the end of the track. Quite an enjoyable launch of FdM’s 2016 releases.
