The fifth album from Marsmobil has been hailed by many as their best yet. With closer ties to Minx (2006) than the last two albums, Fairytales Of The Supersurvivor returns to Marsmobils signature strength of wondrously brilliant songs (And The Fishes In The Ocean, Shadows Of The Inner Light) that blend off-the-wall cinemascope sounds with dazzling beats and punchy, powerful hooks to create uniquely distinctive art pop anthems.
As always with Marsmobil, Roberto Di Gioia writes, plays, sings and programs everything himself. Here, as on Minx, hes brought in support from a fabulous singer the very wonderful Amber Lin, who contributes vocals on four songs. All the cover illustrations are also by Di Gioia.
Multi-instrumentalist Roberto Di Gioia needs little introduction. The curious can explore his biography, discography and extensive lists of projects and collaborations as musician and songwriter (see below) for an impression of the hugely diverse achievements of this multi- talent and brilliant musician.
As a topical heads-up, Roberto Di Gioia is also the founder of the German jazz supergroup Web Web and released the album Oracle in September 2017. The second Web Web album will follow in early 2018, hard on the heels of the fifth Marsmobil release. Di Gioia also wrote and produced Teufelswerk for DJ Hell and contributed virtually all the songs on Hells latest album, Zukunftsmusik.
