Chocolate Soup presents: JUJU - Gioele Valenti (IT) // Psych Fuzz Club /w Harrison Fraud
Chocolate Soup prsnts:

JuJu - Gioele Valenti is the brainchild of Sicilian multi-instrumentalist Gioele Valenti (Lay Llamas, Herself). Following on from the project’s 2016 S/T debut – widely hailed as one of the best, most innovative psych albums of the year – Valenti has signed to Fuzz Club and he released of sophomore LP ‘Our Mother Was A Plant’. Carrying on in its predecessor’s footsteps, the new LP is a continuation of JuJu’s ritualistic sonic exploration into the cultural implications of the ongoing refugee crisis and humanities increasingly strained relationship with Mother Earth.

"...But what makes this a special album by a special artist is Valenti's ability to take structures and instrumentation from faraway lands and to seamlessly weave them into his own musical tapestry and without being patronising or gimmicky...there is an integrity and a sincerity that shines through" - Days of Purple and Orange

"JuJu is an album of sweepingly melodic music that still retains a strange kind of intimacy. Just when you thought you might never want to hear another ‘psych rock’ album again in your life, along comes an artist who resets the co-ordinates and makes the past seem startling new again." - The Quietus
