True Oddity Eric Carbonara at Highwire Gallery May 20

True Oddity Eric Carbonara at Highwire Gallery May 20

With the world of Philly music as wide open and eclectic as it is, you might feel that a true oddity is impossible. But just when you think there are no surprises, you happen to notice someone like Eric Carbonara, who's been on the scene for over a decade now, playing, producing, engineering, everything. The man is a dynamo, essentially. He's on a constant search for the purest form of "raw aural expression" and it shows. Listen to a song like "Splitting Two Into One" with its skronky drone, almost verging on doom metal, and then flip over to his newest stuff, which sounds more like a mix of flamenco and North African folk with an Eastern tint. Confused? Don't be! All of these seemingly divergent styles are united by Carbonara's dark, contemplative mysticism. All that you have to do is lay back and get lost in his world.
