Re: Now Playing

Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi - Rome OST

Honestly, with the exception of a handful of artists, I have lost just about all interest in new music during 2011. I can't explain it, whether it's burnout, or merely the sense of ubiquitous deriviateness, there has been so so little which stands out. Today, at of all places a nearby FYE where I go exclusively to search the used DVDs while toning out the usual in-store assault of big-label shit ranging from Rod Stewart live concerts to your interchangeable top-40 auto-tune crud, I got shot in the head by this one. Definitely has a vintage late-60s/early-70s soundtrack quality, lush and baroque, at times I wondered whether Morricone or Vannier or Barry wasn't being sampled. Even Jack White and Norah Jones cannot diminish the beauty of these little productions. Think AIR, Hylozoists, Gane/O'Hagan, Burgalat.

Probably not as great as I'm making it out to be, but the combination of the setting (FYE) and the dearth of new music with any heart made this one stand out.

Well I guess it's just you and I in this forum anymore anyways. It's like that movie Enemy Mine. Maybe we'll have a reptile baby.

Well, a week or so later I think that this album, this soundtrack to an imaginary film, this 5-year labor of love, it's a work of art.

I agree. I think the vocals will take a while to get used to, don't like their sound too much, but the music is good enough to make me listen through it. Besides the Italian soundtrack influences, I hear Blonde Redhead Misery is a Butterfly in there sometimes. Of course they were influenced too. Now if the vocals were Kazu, I'd be in heaven. :) This will definitely get repeat listens, thanks for the heads up k.
