Giardini di Miro` are a band from Italy that assembled an intriguing combination of hypnotic instrumental textures, deconstructed melodies, dilated psychedelic improvisation, and melodramatic soft-loud glacial/vibrant dynamics (a` la Godspeed You Black Emperor and Mogwai). The EPs Giardini di Miro` (1998) and Iceberg (1999), later collected on Hits For Broken Hearts and Asses (2nd, 2004), preceded the album Rise and Fall of Academic Drifting (Homesleep, 2001), a milestone of Italian post-rock, a work of calm melancholy disturbed by sudden emotional outbursts (with a peak of pathos in Pet Life Saver).

The Academic Rise of Falling Drifters (2002) is a remix album. Despite the increased melodic effort and the addition of violin and clarinet,

Neither Punk Not Diet (Homesleep, 2003) nor Dividing Opinions (2006) were as emotionally gripping as the first album.

(Translation by/ Tradotto da Gabriele Crozzoli)

I Giardini di Mirò sono una band italiana che ha assemblato una intrigante combinazione di ipnotica tessitura strumentale, melodie vocali destrutturate, dilatata improvvisazione psichedelica e melodrammatici contrasti di piani e di forti, con dinamiche vibranti e glaciali (a` la Godspeed You Black Emperor e Mogwai). Gli EPs Giardini di Miro` (1998) and Iceberg (1999), poi raccolti in Hits For Broken Hearts and Asses (2nd, 2004), hanno preceduto l’album Rise and Fall of Academic Drifting (Homesleep, 2001), una pietra miliare del post-rock italiano, una disco dove tenue melanconia viene sovente disturbata da improvvise esplosioni soniche emozionali (con il picco di pathos in Pet Life Saver).

The Academic Rise of Falling Drifters (2002) è solo un album di remix. Nonostante l’incrementato apporto melodico e l’aggiunta di violini e clarinetti, Punk Not Diet (Homesleep, 2003) non è così intrigante e magnetico come il primo album.
