Out now, on digital release, "ROUGH" and "ROUGH OUT", the first full-length release from STEAD, lo-fi, folk, indie music project curated and embodied by the sicilian and London-based singer/songwriter Stefano Antoci D'Agostino. A project born in New York which grew up in the small clubs of Milan, establishing itself as a delicate reality of the german underground music scene before settling in London in 2010. “Rough” synthesizes a long path through the last 4 years of this project's life, in all its shades, and its journeys across europe and all the wonderful musicians who got involved, like the John Parish' collaborator Cesare Basile, Giuliano Dottori, Dave Muldoon, Veivecura, Roberta Cartisano and the cellist Francesco Saverio Gliozzi (Sursum Corda) to mention but a few. An infinite journey that “Rough” retraces through the 8 most significant songs written during this period, together with “Rough Out” (extended version, available exclusively on Bandcamp), that will include 8 more tracks, demos and rarities recorded in due process between Milan, Malmo, Celje, Berlin e London. “Rough” and “Rough Out” release was anticipated in 2011 by the single and music video “Instead”, entirely self-produced, filmed and published by Stefano Antoci D'Agostino. “Repetitive”, the second single taken from Rough, will precede and celebrate the digital release of the album. Repetitive Music Video was filmed in Bricklane, London, in 2011 and is curated by the Apulian film-maker Lino Palena. In the meantime the Stead is working on the successor of “Rough” and a new EP will be released before the end of 2012.
