Dirty Shoes 03:17
When I had so many things I didn't know where I came from all I've got now is dirty shoes I need to walk my way home I need to walk my way home Wasting time so to say gonna bring its bill today only now I realize there's a lot of wallets out of size lots of wallets out of size What this song is trying to say to all the beaten of today you're crippled by a big lie serve the masters until you die serve the masters until you die serve the masters... So when I wake up in the morning I'm not aware of rain or sun run outside to the monster town where Dignity is for sale again Dignity is for sale again Dignity...
Good Things 04:57
Dear love of mine look, we are unkind look, we are sometimes like some lonely strangers Would you mind today if I cry all day if I cry my way like a lonely stranger Over the mountains, over the seas some good things I fell, I can see good things happen to those who are happy It's laughing yesterday maybe shouting today shouting face to face like some lonely strangers Worrying about tomorrow I can feel your sorrow we are in a sleepy hollow no more stranger together
Hard Times 03:13
Hard Times Can my dreams come out of mouth while I always keep it shut? Searching for a perfect self it's only a mask to leave on a shelf Now it's time to break your tears into a laugh like you feel Hard times to Come outside Hard times to Smile at the morning light
Misi-Ziibi 02:35

“Ottima sorpresa il bolognese Laino e i suoi Broken Seeds […] Dirty Shoes la cosa migliore”

Alias, ottobre 2015

“This music was born inside the walls of a small living room and has grown up under the porticoes in Bologna during long and rainy afternoons while I was digging up my soul among blood, sweat and dreams”.

LAINO is voice, Dobro guitar, diddley bow, electrified kalimba and small percussions.

"LAINO & Broken Seeds" (EP) is Laino debut album as a songwriter, where instrumental music and pieces enriched with vocals draw their inspiration from John Mississippi Hurt, Muddy Waters, John Fahey but also Morphine, Tom Waits and Johnny Cash works.

"Broken Seeds" is also the name of the band joining him live and through recording sessions; it is composed by Gaetano Alfonsi (drums), Andrea Lamacchia (double bass), Diego Cofone (baritone sax and bass clarinet).

Laino moved to Bologna in 2001 and since then he has been collaborating with musicians, actors and directors on-the-spot.

Laino & Broken Seeds Italy

Laino & Broken Seeds is a musical journey through the shamanic and archaic side of the blues. Inspired by southern lands, muddy rivers and vintage equipment, the raw electric resonator of Laino tell stories of lost memories, dizzy dreams and dusty records.
After the EP “Broken Seeds” released in 2014, the band produced “The Dust I Own” (2017, off label records).
