Originally released in the summer of 2013, Vincenzo Salvia’s full-length debut, Auto Radio, marries classic Italo disco elements with more modern electronic sounds and is truly a masterwork of the synthwave genre. A concept album realized as fictional radio broadcast from 1985, Auto Radio takes you on an imaginary journey through Italy – along the Amalfi Coast, through the busy streets of Milan, and into the lovely Italian countryside. But more importantly, the album takes you on a very real aural journey through the wonderful sounds of Italo disco’s golden age. Soaring melodies and rolling bass lines transport you to another time and place. But remember, nothing stays the same…
Just as the Eighties came to a close, so too did the popularity of Italo disco, as the country embraced the much different sounds of new wave, Eurobeat, and house music. Fortunately, you can now relive that glorious decade and the wonder and beauty of great Italo disco music, with a modern twist. Lipstick Crush Records is proud to present Vincenzo Salvia’s Auto Radio, for the first time ever on double vinyl – in two colorways (golden yellow and blue and white marble) – with redesigned artwork by George Gold (Nightcrawler) and mastered specifically for vinyl by Jeppe Hasseriis (Dynatron). So grab your suitcase in the night, hop in the car, and just drive. You’re tuned in to Auto Radio and the possibilities are infinite. Lie on the beach of Rimini. Watch the sunset from Maratea. Enjoy every moment of your travels – but be sure to grab a postcard to remember them by, because holidays are not forever.
