O Superman launched Anderson’s recording career in 1980, rising to number two on the British pop charts and subsequently appearing on Big Science, the first of her seven albums on the Warner Brothers label.

Unscientific Italians: Frisellian Magic

Read "Unscientific Italians: Frisellian Magic" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


If Italian film director Nanni Moretti had been born in 1973 instead of 1953, he might well have set the iconic Vespa ride through the empty streets of a languid, mid-August Rome in Caro Diario against a Bill Frisell rather than a Keith Jarrett soundtrack. Because if every era is defined by a limited ...

Gli Unscientific Italians e l'arte della meta-sintesi Friselliana

Read "Gli Unscientific Italians e l'arte della meta-sintesi Friselliana" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


Se Nanni Moretti fosse nato nel 1973 invece che nel 1953, la famosa scena di Caro Diario che lo vede in sella ad un vespone per le strade vuote di una languida Roma ferragostana avrebbe avuto come colonna sonora la musica di Bill Frisell piuttosto che quella di Keith Jarrett. Perchè ogni epoca viene definita da ...

Mirna Bogdanović: L'arte del confronto

Read "Mirna Bogdanović: L'arte del confronto" reviewed by Serena Antinucci


Ci vuole una fervida immaginazione per raggiungere luoghi diversi stando fermi. È quello che accade ascoltando il disco d'esordio della giovane cantante sloveno-bosniaca, di base a Berlino, Mirna Bogdanović. La tradizione si apre verso direzioni contemporanee, più istintive, non resta ferma, si mostra accogliente ed è pronta a cambiare rotta senza preavviso, né regole. Confrontation da ...

Steph Richards: Supersense

Read "Supersense" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


With all the threatening weirdness and desperate surrealism that has become life in the USA, it makes absolute sense that Supersense, daring trumpeter/composer Steph Richards' third full length album, starts out like an encroaching invasion of ants, or microbes, or a disruptive, divisive, myopic political movement.
