Aside from having one of the most exquisitely flamboyant names, Giovanni Carnuccio III packs a truly imaginary vision to the picnic. Based right here in Austin, the drummer-producer’s provided percussion for the likes of Turnpike Troubadours and John Fullbright, even racking up a “Best Americana Album” Grammy nomination for the latter.
But looking past his impressive session work, “Nooch” is also gearing up for the sequel to his 2020 debut solo EP, Spaghetti Western. Bursting through the saloon doors with a full six cylinders plus an extra round, A Matter Of Time challenges the norms set by Ennio Morricone with mouth-watering sonic clarity, modern flourishes that’ll make a gunslinger gawk, and bizarrely beautiful instrumentals like “PCHDMT”, whose psychedelic submersion and pop sensibilities are sure to make your cross-country road trip a bit more exciting!
