From In The Age Of Batteries

Marco Panella is an experimental guitarist and songwriter from Vermont. Dusted magazine called Panella’s album Eastern Landscapes (2010) “a worthy artifact of the creative mind untethered”. In The Age Of Batteries, Panella’s most recent album, pulls us further into Panella’s inventive vision of the American reality between truth and fiction. His guitar work draws from the wells of American Primitivism, Nashville and some of the guitar innovators of the last 30 years.
