"the party"

“There is Dylan walking side by side with the Sebadoh in the opening track “A weekend out”…” - blackmailmag


"tobia lamare & the sellers"

An authentic country record made in Italy? Probabily the purists of country music would not believe this. Maybe if they’d listen at The Party, first release for Tobia Lamare & the Sellers, the could change their minds. - sky.it


"the party"

“It’s far from the music trends and it celebrates the alternative country scene of the 70’s, the old fashioned debut album of Tobia Lamare & the Sellers…” - corriere della sera


"the party"

The party is a genuine record and pleasant in every part, it delights the listeners with its rhythmic changes from the “dylanian” folk of !A weekend out” to the 70’s refrains of “Talking in the rain”, going through the alt. country moods of “Summer of ‘82” and “My Stormy Days”, and the outsiders “Silver” and “Dear Dear”. - mescalina.it


"the party"

“…The Party is a record that really shows all the eclectic nature of this combo, it was nominated to be the voice of the rock n roll from Salento”
- il popolo del blues


"the party"

“..With a great work on the sound construction, the cd is both homogeneous, unique and complex at the same time” - echoes77

"the party"

“An italian record to export: Tobia Lamare & the Sellers. Little genius from Salento, with a sound between Johnny Cash, the Beatles and Beck.” - left

“…Tobia Lamare established a label, took good musicians and printed a concept album without any reggae beat, close to the great north american folk and rock tradition…”
- GQ


"tobia lamare"

“…at Masseria Lobello, lives a musician that takes his name from the main carachter of Russ Meyer’s Supervixen. IN the middle onf an organic grain field, the masseria, decorated with Elvis memorabilia, a painting coming from the Mississippi, some guitars, it’s a rural life that brought Tobia Lamare and his band (the sellers)away from “pizzica” and close to country music.” - i viaggi del sole

“…If only the passport wouldn’t be Italian, “The Party” would be in the Sub Pop catalogue with Shins and Blitzen Trapper” - rockerilla

Bio

Tobia Lamare & the Sellers are a musical entourage from the south east of Italy. They reside in a countryside that has no borders with the Mediterrean Sea but that has ties with the Mississippi and Tennesee Rivers. They produce a sound that can be described as mixing Neil Young, Pavement and the Violent Femmes and shaking it under the burning southern Italian sun in the middle of a barley field. In 1993, Tobia formed the band Psycho Sun, recording 5 albums released in Europe as well as touring throughout Italy, Spain, France, and the UK, opening for artists such as Iggy Pop & the Stooges, Karate, SOdastream…From those 15 years of mayhem that he encountered as a young and aspiring rock n roller, including flirts, lust, broken hearts, smashed brains, death, life, guns, restrictions and happiness, he has written and recorded with his new band The Sellers,, an album aptly entitled “The Party”, where every song, every character and every note is linked to each other. The album was mainly recorded at Sud est studio and at his home, La Masseria Lobello (The Lobello Farm) where in between working long days on his organic farm, he would spend the nights sculpturing his story, fuelled from the textures and vibrancy of his sun soaked surroundings. The Party was released through his label, Lobello records, on January 2010, and now is distributed by Goodfellas.
During the last two years they have toured Italy, U.K., Spain and Ireland. “My stormy days” won a prize as best video clip at Zero festival (Ferrara). They will be on the road again as soon their new album “Are you ready for the freaks?” will be released at the beginning of April 2012.
The new album is a perfect evolution of the first one, going through the roads of the alternative country of the ‘70s mixed with the modern indie folk. Ballads, rock n roll and country music that mix Belle and Sebastian and Beck with the folk of Dylan, James Taylor and Carole King.
The songs are pictures of a small town with its desires, its lovers and cheaters, its lifes sometimes happy sometimes broken. Life, love and death like in the best tradition of country music.
There will be some guests on the album like: Pete Ross (AUS), Ronan Turner from Red Kid (IRL), Martin Hagfors(Norway/usa), Terje Nordgarden(Norway), and more…
The band will be on tour again from April 2012.
