BRUNO NICOLAI - GEMINUS ITALY SOUNDTRACK LEGEND - BUY IT HERE ON VINYL!


BRUNO NICOLAI - "GEMINUS" (FOUR FLIES RECORDS 44, ITALY IMPORT LP), another gem of an LP by our Italian partners FOUR FLIES RECORDS. 

The first vinyl reissue of Bruno Nicolai’s outstanding original score for GEMINUS, a 1969 Italian TV mini-series directed by Luciano Emmer and starring Walter Chiari, Alida Chelli, and Ira von Fürstenberg.
Originally released under Italian label Gemelli, Nicolai’s soundtrack has been remastered from the original master tapes and comes in a glossy, tip-on style jacket featuring the restored original cover artwork, as well as extended liner notes by film critics Francesco Cesari and Roberto Curti.
Bruno Nicolai composed and directed an eclectic score that brings together different music genres and influences, from 60s beat, psych, and prog rock to baroque and experimental music. He did not hesitate to mix classical forms and structures with new instruments
and remarkable, eccentric arrangements.

In ‘Giano’ (Janus), the interplay between a distorted electric guitar and a hypnotic harpsichord creates a strange, somewhat troubling ambience.

The delicate, celestial voice of Edda Dell'Orso leaves its unique emotional imprint on the most lyrical piece in the soundtrack, ‘Tema Barocco’ (Baroque Theme).
The main theme ‘Il cielo cade’ (The Sky Is Falling) features a luxurious arrangement and stunning orchestration enhanced by enchanting vocal harmonies sung by ‘I Cantori Moderni di Alessandroni’.


In other pieces, such as ‘Larve’ (Larvas), ‘Il sognatore’ (The Dreamer), ‘Eclisse di luna’ (Moon Eclipse), ‘Visioni’ (Visions), ‘Catacombe’ (Catacombs), and ‘Notti romane’ (Roman Nights), expressive and experimental solo passages played by instruments such as the vibraphone, sitar, harmonica, or percussions, contribute to the sombre, mysterious atmosphere of the score as a whole.
Limited edition, 500 copies worldwide.

NICOLAI - GEMINUS LP

Piero Umiliani - "L’Uomo Elettronico" just released 2Lp of Italian ELECTRONIC MUSIC from 1972 to 1983! BUY IT HERE NOW

Piero Umiliani - "L’Uomo Elettronico" (FOUR FLIES RECORDS - FLIES 50, ITALY IMPORT LP), out this week is this amazing and ultra limited deluxe 2LP set of ELECTRONIC MUSIC by a genius of the genre. We have partenred up with FOUR FLIES RECORDS to be able to sell this album from our Uk base. 

Twenty years ago, what is probably still the best collection of music  by Piero Umiliani, “Musicaelettronica”, was released on Easy Tempo (in our opinion, the finest Italian soundtrack label ever).  The album, curated by Rocco Pandiani, focussed on the astonishing creative mastery with which Umiliani played around in his Sound Work Shop studio, where he had all kinds of analogue machines to
experiment with.

Not only did albums like “Musicaelettronica” inspire the very existence of Four Flies Records, but our new Umiliani release, L’Uomo Elettronico, follows on precisely from where “Musicaelettronica”  left off. While Pandiani’s selection provided an insight into the playful, lighter side of Umiliani’s electronic music, our release explores its introspective, esoteric side.

There is a dreamy, ambient quality at work here: the Maestro builds hypnotic, minimalist sonic landscapes through layers of sharp synths, including Moog, Arp, and VCS3. This music could fit equally well in a sci-fi documentary, a post-apocalyptic film, a television report on climate change, or a journey through outer space.

L’Uomo Elettronico features 3 previously unreleased tracks, as well as rarities and hidden gems, all composed between 1972 and 1983 and remastered from the original analogue tapes.

SOFT HEARTED SCIENTISTS "TAKE TIME TO WONDER IN A WHIRLING WORLD" buy it here on vinyl

SOFT HEARTED SCIENTISTS - "TAKE TIME TO WONDER IN A WHIRLING WORLD" (YOU ARE THE COSMOS 40, SPAIN IMOPRT LP), wonderful album by these Welsh Psychedelic wizzards. From the stalwards of the British Psych scene comes a fantastic record. The enticingly-named 'The A470 Song' begins the journey with Spacemen 3-like droning and a vocal that is part narration, part-singing. Its slightly dark theme proves to be the exception to the rule. 'I Wanted You' is a jolly little number, 'Light Years To Nothing' is a hopeful song with a fine key change for the chorus and the harmonies on 'Meet Me At The Milky Way' suggest The Fifth Dimension have reformed. Other highlights include the epic 'Siberia' and 'I'll Be Happy, I'll Be Sleeping' with its key lyric of "We'll be dead by the second half of the century" making no attempt to deny they may be stuck in a time warp. Thankfully, unnecessarily extended codas to songs are kept to a minimum too. At a time when most bands stick to one mood on a record, 'Take Time To Wonder...' is a multi-coloured pop opus where the unashamedy nostalgic influence is a strength rather than a weakness. Sealed copy up for grabs now!
