Dominic Angellela's 'Move Out of America' recounts his most persistent memories - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

It’s not a political stance; Philly’s Dominic Angellela really is leaving the US to live with his wife in Ireland. And while processing the transition, Angellela wrapped up six tracks, all about poignant memories from the changing landscapes of his life, into the charming EP Move Out of America, out today.

In his own words, “[Move] attempts to catalog the split between what came before, and what was happening in the moments I was trying to adjust to my new life in a different place.” The EP revisits Baltimore, where Angellela grew up playing in a post-hardcore band; Hamburg, Germany on tour with Lucy Dacus; and the former Tayto (now Emerald) Park, Ireland’s only theme park. In his diary-entry style with lean instrumentation, Angellela plucks a subtle lesson from each memory. Listen for themes of “lost friendships, fear of death and missed adventure as a result, not killing household pests, how It Is Not Good For Man To Be Alone, neolithic tombs and rollercoasters, and moving out of America” in the life-spanning six songs.

Move Out of America was recorded at Kawari Sounds in Philadelphia. The EP serves as a prelude to Angellela’s next LP God Loves a Scammer, coming soon. “I think this is a very strong and special group of tunes, the perfect preface to the album that is to come.” Read more about Move Out of America at Angellela’s Substack here.
