Mike’s Monday Muse – Don Antonio

Mike’s Monday Muse is where friend of the blog, roots DJ, house show organizer, Bloomington Music Expo czar and all around nice guy Mike McAfee picks one song a week to share with the people.

Batticuore is the Italian word for heartbeat. I didn’t know Don Antonio was a band (fronted by multi-instrumentalist Antonio Garmantieri) until they backed up the one and only, Alejandro Escovedo, on his record The Crossing. I thought Antonio actually was Don, but whatever…I ramble. Don Antonio are based in Modigliana, Italy and they were beyond fantastic when I saw them play with Alejandro. Antonio said this about their new record, Beautiful Season: “Beautiful Season is a song record. In Italian. The Beautiful Season is a collection of short stories. They’re not the same thing, and they don’t necessarily date. They have a clear connection, but also their autonomy.”
