IndieGuild Album Review: “Happiness is a Tree”
"Happiness Is A Tree"
~ Max Maffia & the Empty Daybox ~
an album review by resident critic Gianmaria Consiglio
Is it still possible in this technocratic age to rediscover your own roots? Do we still conserve something of our natural essence, or is all lost? “Happiness is a tree” comes the answer from Max Maffia (ma-féar) and his Empty Daybox. And an answer like that, coming from an information technology expert hailing musically from the areas of rock and new wave and from artists such as Hendrix and Syd Barrett, really says it all. It is even more surprising if we look back over this artist’s distant origins.
