✨✧ Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaNiente ... LP
Gemelli/Roundtable (Australia), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing lost album from the legendary Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – a sextet of Italian modernists that included Ennio Morricone! The album may well be the group's grooviest ever – recorded right after their legendary Feed-back set, and done with a similar blend of compelling rhythms and odd instrumentation – in ways that are undeniably funky at points, and downright trippy at others! The drumming seems to draw a lot from the changes in German prog – with a very specific Can influence at work – and other elements move in and out of the mix in a really great way – clearly improvisational, but when the groove gets going, it's clear that the players also can't help starting to jam. The record was recorded in 1971, but never issued at the time – and titles include "Niente", "Bambu", "Toms", "Renitenza", "Mattatoio", "Down", "Sieben", and "Bali". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Group (Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza)Feed-Back (with bonus CD) ... LP
RCA/Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the best records ever from the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – an obscure side project of Ennio Morricone and other Italian composers – working here in a freaky, psychedelic setting! The album mixes sonic experiments with fuzzy guitars, freaky keyboards, and some surprisingly funky rhythms at times – at a level that's even more compelling than some of the group's other projects – especially given that the album's three tracks are all quite long, with lots of room for instrumental experimentation! Yet as in some of the best prog work of the period – such as by Can or Faust – there's a sense of focus and groove that really holds the whole thing together. And given that these guys had already had years of experience in the studio – on both sides of the production booth – they really have a wonderful ear for extremely inventive sounds. Titles include "Kumalo", "The Feed-Back", and "Quasars". LP, Vinyl record album

Bruno NicolaiEspressioni (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Gemelli/Loneos Editions (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $31.99
Some of the darkest work we've ever heard from Bruno Nicolai – an Italian soundtrack composer who's usually in the more groovy side of the spectrum – but who here proves that he can be as moody and offbeat as his frequent musical partner, Ennio Morricone! The tunes have some occasional swinging moments, but often move into more offbeat, atonal modes – such as those explored by Morricone in his tenser horror soundtracks, or in his music with Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – the latter of whom would be a great comparison to the sound of this set. We've always loved Nicolai's music, and we're even more impressed that he can come up with work of this nature too – especially when he still finds a way to make things feel slightly cinematic. Titles include "Simbolica", "Risolutiva", "Metodica", "Vocale", "Immaginativa", and "Integrante". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Egisto MacchiComplete Anya Sessions – 1972 to 1976 (13CD set) ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy 13CD box set ... Out Of Stock
A very cool box set of work from Italian composer Egisto Macchi – one of the key members of the Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza, but one who often worked in much more obscure territory than his bandmate, Ennio Morricone! Macchi did more sound libary work than full soundtracks – and as a result, was able to keep on experimenting with his sound – such that the range of albums presented here, all done for the tiny Anya label in the mid 70s, offer up a huge variety of sounds – some very offbeat and avant, others surprisingly tuneful with really beautiful elements! The flavor shifts from record to record – a guitarist might be strong on one, an orchestra on another – and the full range of these recordings has never been collected together before – housed in a beautiful box that offers up the albums Africa Minima, Comedie Francaise, Quando Per Solitudine, Prigionia, Adagi E Allegri, Nucleo Centrale Investigativo, Il Deserto, Pittura Contemporanea, Pittura Moderna 1, Pittura Modern 2, L'Angolo Dei Bambini, Violenza, and Messico.
