Fabio Orsi & Mamuthones - The First Born [2008/A Silent Place/mp3/320]

Description "The First Born" the first collaboration between Fabio Orsi and Mamuthones (Alessio Gastaldello, ex-Jennifer Gentle). After six years with the Jennifers, Alessio split amicably in late 2006 and reinvented himself as Mamuthones. Built around a series of percussion-cum-keyboard sonic landscapes performed by Mamuthones and enriched by deep, droney electronic layers later added by Orsi, "The First Born" contains four long tracks of dark, brooding modern psychedelia. The whole album feels like an ancient sea ebbing and flowing on some distant alien shore, making for a curiously disjointed listening experience, at the same time peaceful and menacing. The ever-shifting sonic textures evoke both the starchildren krautrockers of old and more recent outer-world explorers but always keep a strong personal identity, firmly rooted in the current weird Italian take on space rock. Digifile.
