BBF show a ready adventurousness and their songs have a fluidity to them that makes the moments of drift all the more effective, but when they want to rock there’s plenty of room for that as well, as they show early in the record on “Third Eye” and “Time,” though ultimately their sonic reach proves more varied in its intention. That is to its credit and to the band’s, as they seem to have no trouble holding the proceedings together and letting their songs work in defiance of what one might generalize as some of the tropes of Italian heavy rock, eschewing influences like  Fu Manchu and Nebula in favor of broader styles of songcraft, while still holding to an energy of performance that keeps the eight-track offering moving forward in interesting ways as it weaves between one expression and the next.

If, as the intro “Apollo” suggests in reading the transcription left behind by the first astronauts to touch down on the moon, BBF “came in peace for all mankind,” that’s not exactly a minor ambition. I can’t speak to the universality of its appeal — that is, what portion of “all mankind” is going to be able to get down — but their having come in peace is easy enough to grant. “Apollo” is just two minutes long before it gives over to “Third Eye,” but it plays an essential role in Outside the Noise just the same in that it adjusts the listener’s expectation at the outset for immediacy. As in, there isn’t one. And it’s smartly done, because as Outside the Noise is the band’s first offering for Argonauta, it’s an exposure to a new audience perhaps taking them on for the first time — I know I am, at least — so essentially “Apollo” works with deceptive efficiency in those two minutes to teach that new audience how to experience what’s coming on the seven cuts that follow. They’re not the first to do such a thing, and it may or may not have been a conscious decision on their part, but it’s smoothly done just the same.

And that smoothness also becomes a running theme throughout. “Third Eye” has perhaps the most prevalent hook on the record — figuratively as well as literally; the vocals are too high and dry in the chorus, which is something “Kaleidoscope” corrects later but that comes back again on the penultimate “Sun” — but even as BBF leave behind the straightforward path in favor of more open and exploratory vibes, they do so with an inviting spirit. The three movements across the 9:33 of “Outside the Noise” itself are clearly-enough marked in the track with drops to silence at 2:53 and 7:43 to draw the lines between sonic turns. The first part seems to bring in guest vocals for some soulful wailing over guitar that’s ably enough done but probably would seem all the more so with some lyrics being delivered, while the midsection taps Blind Melon wistful grunge, and the ending serves as a meditative intro to the spacier textures soon to take hold in “Into the Light” and which will continue to unfold on “Kaleidoscope,” “Sun” and the droney closer “Harvest Moon.”

The solo tone that was prefaced in “Third Eye” finds its realization in “Into the Light” and, yeah, if these guys wanted to whip out a “Maggot Brain” cover at any point, I’d be down to check it out. The guitar work is classy, not at all overwrought, and however they got it, that tone is something special and worth preserving. It stands out somewhat in contrast to the drift and post-rock of what surrounds, particularly with “Kaleidoscope” following, but that works to its benefit. It’s made to stand out, where “Kaleidoscope” is made to be hypnotic and sure enough is precisely that, running through a subtly quick 4:21 and giving way to “Sun” which enacts the final build of the record with a marked character and charged emotional progression palpable in the instruments as much as the vocals.

Its turns aren’t unexpected, but their immediate familiarity acts in their favor as it’s that much easier to follow them upward to the crescendo of Outside the Noise, leaving “Harvest Moon” as what might be a five-minute afterthought were it night such an experimentalist delight. Chimes, acoustic guitar, electric drone, quiet cymbal washes and rain sticks and in the end a consuming churn and wash of synth to cut to silence to show a band willing and ready to step outside of even the fairly wide comfort zone they’ve established over the course of the record to that point. That’s an impulse and a drive that serves them well in bidding goodbye to their second offering and holds promise for continued growth, but based on what they do here, one wouldn’t want to make any predictions on their direction for a third release, except perhaps to say that the progression underway in these tracks does not seem to be at an end point and that BBF do not seem like the kind of band to find their sound and hold still in it. There’s a restlessness here, as much as it’s coming in peace, but BBF channel that into an engaging and fascinating variety of craft on Outside the Noise, and though the record isn’t perfect, somehow it feels like if it was it would lose some of its natural spirit.

BBF Stream New Single “Sun”; Outside the Noise Preorders Available

Posted in Whathaveyou on October 30th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

bbf

So, the promo stuff for BBF‘s second album plays up a psych-funky aspect to their sound, and there’s certainly nothing wrong with that, as far as I’m concerned. When I listen to the new single “Sun,” though, which you can stream below, I get even more of a grunge vibe. Yeah there’s some acid funk shimmer in the lead tone and the vocals are surely carrying a good bit of soul — again, always welcome — but if it’s funk, it’s definitely not just funk, if you know what I’m saying.

While I’m refusing to disparage things, however, I’ll point out two considerations. One, the song rules. Two, diversity of sound is nearly a universal positive. So it’s a win either way. The release date for their record is in December, but I’m going to try not to let this one slip through the year-end cracks — there are so many — and will hope to have more to come before the record is out, though if you don’t want to wait, preorders are up now.

Psychedelic funk rock trio BBF reveal album details + first single!

Outside the Noise coming December 6th on Argonauta Records!

After rising label Argonauta Records have announced one of their recent band signings by welcoming Italy’s psychedelic, stoner and acid funk rock band BBF to their eclectic artist roster, today we finally get to hear some first tunes taken from the band’s upcoming, sophomore album Outside the Noise! Set for a release on December 6th 2019, you can now stream a first single to the soothing track Sun. Dive into the sound landscape of BBF right HERE!

BBF were formed in 2016 by Pietro Brunetti, Claudio Banelli and Carlo Forgiarini, who all share a deep-rooted passion for the sound of the 60s, 70s and everything that springs out of its creative sound and the world of rock. After the release of BBF’s first studio LP, Beside Everything We Need 70s, the band went through a period of great introspection, which helped them to become much more aware of their possibilities as musicians; new songs came to life, with a new and much more sophisticated and mature sound. In November 2018, the trio barricaded themselves in the studio to record their second album Outside The Noise, a psychedelic conceptual LP that wishes to help bodies and minds develop a greater sense of awareness and connection.

“This album was recorded entirely on tape, in an isolated home in the middle of the mountains of our region, in an environment which was completely deprived of any kind of noise.” BBF explains. “Our band was going through a pretty difficult time – things were not at all going smoothly between us and our personal life as well was going through quite a rough patch. This work therefore wishes to reflect this tough period of time and, especially, wishes to reflect our own willingness to escape all of the damn noise that was – and still is – surrounding us and flooding our minds. These 8 songs came out spontaneously, they were not planned, and they are the representation of all the difficult moments that each of us went through. They were conceptually similar to one another even before we developed the main conceptual idea of the album. The passing of time and a newly-developed awareness allowed us to align our minds and to embark upon the journey that would then become Outside the Noise.”

Outside the Noise Tracklisting:
1. Apollo
2. Third Eye
3. Time
4. Outside The Noise
5. Into The Light
6. Kaleidoscope
7. Sun
8. Harvest Moon (Ghost track)

Outside the Noise is available to pre-order via the Argonauta Records store at THIS LOCATION!

BBF is:
Pietro Brunetti (Electric bass, synth, vocals)
ClaudioBanelli (Electric and acoustic guitar, vocals)
Carlo Forgiarini (Drums and percussions)

BBF Sign to Argonauta Records; New Album Outside the Noise Later This Year

Posted in Whathaveyou on June 6th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

Taking their moniker from the surname initials of each of their three members, BBF will debut on Argonauta Records sometime later this year with their second album, Outside the Noise. As to what sort of funky-heavy-whatnottery might ensue, I don’t know. I’m not even sure if the thing is recorded yet, but the stated aim of “help bodies and minds develop a greater sense of awareness and connection,” as per the PR wire, sounds pretty ambitious. Like, isn’t that what yoga is supposed to do?

Nothing against yoga either, mind you, and I imagine Outside the Noise will provide a decent core workout as well for those who dig in.

Here’s the announcement about picking up the band from Argonauta:
