‘Your Mother’s Jacuzzi’ This release features elegant cover art – not the type created to satisfy the narcissistic needs of artists via Photoshop processed portraits – as well as inspired material. What else could a fan ask for? Once again, Markos Delivorias grabs our attention with this release, his fifth album. He studied directing in London but has been preoccupied with music since 2000. Delivorias, who pens his lyrics exclusively in English, divides his time between New Mexico and the Peloponnese in southern Greece. This duality is perhaps a factor in the project’s vaguely world sound which, however, does not overshadow its Greekness. What did we pick up from this listen? The detailed guitar dashes are a standout feature, as is the exquisite playing by the project’s team of gifted musicians. They include Costas Parisis, the experimental cellist Nikos Veliotis who has recently figured more prominently on the domestic mainstream circuit thanks to well-received work with top-selling Greek act Yiannis Aggelakas – Dimitris Baslam and Panos Tolios. Other noteworthy aspects include the interesting arrangements on» Your Mother’s Jacuzzi» that smack of the popular Tex-Mex band Calexico. Delivorias’s wide-ranging influences, which include Tom Petty, Manolis Famellos, Pavlos Pavlidis and Constantinos Beta, all surface in his work. On the occasion of this new release, Delivorias will be appearing at Baraki tou Vassili (3 Didotou, Kolonaki, Athens) this Thursday.
