“Fertile,” the second album from dynamic Italian trio Stearica, is now just a week from its release through UK-based Monotreme Records.
The album is now playing in its glorious entirety. Listen to the full release below, courtesy of Burning Ambulance. The following press release was also issued:
“Stearica’s intense sophomore album, ‘Fertile,’ was heavily inspired by the Arab Spring and uprising of Barcelona’s Indignants, arising against their governing bodies in search of true freedom. Taking the band’s generally instrumental soundscape movements to entirely new levels of creativity, Fertile incorporates several new approaches for the band through life-affirming experiments with instrumentation as well as atypical vocal passages, with guest contributions from Colin Stetson (Tom Waits, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver) and Scott McCloud (Girls Against Boys) and Ryan Patterson (Coliseum).
“Set to arise alongside new life during this Spring season, ‘Fertile’ marks not only fresh expansion for Stearica as a unit, the album is meant to inspire new growth in the hearts and minds of all free-thinking individuals, with a positive vibe meant to bring forth organic and revolutionary change for the betterment of all beings who inhabit this breathing surface we all reside upon.”
