Veranda Culture is the new album from Melbourne artist and DJ, Francis Inferno Orchestra, who has previously released music on Let’s Play House, Voyeurhythm and Drumpoet Community.
Veranda Culture is a fascinating listen, a gentle change of pace, balancing New Age ambience, percussive pulse rides and echoing synths.
Recorded over a period of three years between Melbourne and London, FIO began making Veranda Culture after discovering the debut album of Greek-born, Sausalito-based composer Iasos – the New Age masterpiece ‘Inter-Dimensional Music’ LP — in Melbourne’s Liquorice Pie record store. He finished writing the album in London during a somewhat chaotic time in his life, when he was feeling the pressure-cooker environment of the city.
