The Star Pillow alias Paolo Monti returns to Midira Records, after his highly acclaimed album “Invisible Summer” back in 2016 and the collaboration with Giulio Aldinucci “Hidden” back in 2018. This time The Star Pillow returns with a very personal album called Music for Sad Headbangers. It may sound a little funny as title, but it´s a serious album gathering the most intimate tracks of his career.

The album doesn´t focus on one stylistic element, it assembles a variety of tracks, that show the different aspects of the artist, moving from ambient, drone, experimental to post-rock sounds, mostly within one track. All in all it is a homogeneous and warm album, that takes you on a diversified sound journey.

“Music for Sad Headbangers” also marks the hiatus of The Star Pillow. This is the last album under this moniker.

The album comes in a 4panel digisleeve with black and white artwork in a beautiful matte finish. Limited to 200 copies.
