Look Up, For We Are No More by Vasco Cesaretti (mp3)
In The Car by Vasco Cesaretti (mp3)
At the office where I work we have several interns, one of them is this 17 year old guy named Vasco Cesaretti. He reads the blog every now and again, and a few weeks ago he asked me to post about him. So I asked him, “What would I write about?”. He told me that I should write about his music. I sort of laughed it off, but told him to send me some, that I’d listen to it, but inside my head I’m already thinking, “Oh my god I’m gonna have to lie to him this is gonna be sooo awkward.”
He sent me a couple songs that night after I went to bed, so I woke up with them in my Inbox. I started to play them, and began to FREAK out. They were really good. Not even really good, they were amazing! I was dumbfounded. I was sitting in my underwear under a blanket grinning from ear to ear in total shock that the 17 year old intern at my work could make music like this.
Vasco currently goes to an ‘arts school for creative people’ that he hates, he has dual citizenship with the US and Italy, he likes to watch neo-realist and new wave films, and plays cello, guitar, and piano. Musically though, he sounds sort of like Grizzly Bear, I guess? It’s kind of electronic, kind of acoustic, so I dunno. I think the best thing to do is listen to his songs, download them, and decide for yourself. Also be sure to check out his Last.fm page which I made him make, haha…
Let me know what you guys think!
