Lontano LP. (Vinyl) /Tshirt Bundle



180g black vinyl. First pressing, limited release of 200. Individually hand numbered, on back cover. Internal packaging: antistatic plastic sleeve and plain white paper slip case. The first 30 albums sold come with a bonus disc (a free duplicated CD version of the album, presented as a miniature imitation of the vinyl release).

Lontano is an Italian term connoting distance (or being “far away”) – and the name of a long-distance collaboration between songwriters who share Italian Australian heritage and a passion for spacious, earthy, alt-country storytelling.

Featuring Brisbane-based Anthony Dettori (The Sunburys) and Cairns-based Roz Pappalardo (women in docs), Lontano explores the concept of distance both practically and thematically, weaving tales of isolation, connection, escape, and an emotional gravity that tugs between separated hearts and minds. Lontano’s eponymous debut album, featuring their 2021 singles Adelaide, Half Seas and December, is available for a short time on limited edition vinyl and CD, ahead of a digital release in February 2022. For people who like: Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Johnny Cash & June Carter, Bob Dylan & Joan Baez, Tom Petty & Stevie Nicks, Bobby Gillespie & Jehnny Beth, Feist & Jeff Tweedy.
