Per voce e dirimpettaio

Read "Per voce e dirimpettaio" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Un tempo i duetti con protagonista la voce che esulassero dal classico contesto del canto accompagnato dal pianoforte erano merce piuttosto rara. Oggi molto meno. Tre album usciti grosso modo simultaneamente vengono prontamente a confermarcelo.
Il contesto è generalmente sperimentale, e questi tre lavori non fanno eccezione.

Anton and the Headcleaners: Rotor

Read "Rotor" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

La vena di sana follia che pervade questo bel lavoro del gruppo svizzero Anton and the Headcleaners ci fa pensare più ai Primus che non a Frank Zappa, anche se sicuramente il genio californiano avrebbe apprezzato questa musica piena di cambi di direzione, di rimandi a mondi paralleli, di energia scoppiettante. Il gruppo aveva già pubblicato un album (Mess-Age) nel ...
