LF58 – Alterazione
The evergreen purveyor of modern psych-ambient Astral Industries present a relative newcomer for their latest offering, LF58, the Italian duo of Giuseppe Tillieci (better known as Neel and 1/2 of Voices From The Lake) and producer / visual artist Filippo Scorcucchi.
Alterazione could be put into context by it's translation into alteration, which forms the foundation of the Italian ambient techno sound surrounding both Neel and Donato Dozzy and their collaborators; slowly morphing parameter alterations that gradually build a seamless narrative of noise and blips and ultimately creates a psychedelia of its own. Here it plays out as four side-sprawling, thick slabs of foggy atmospherics which recalls the slower, less percussively driven side of either of their solo material. A nice update on the stranger side of Pete Namlook's Fax +49-69/450464 label, and definitely an essential listen for stargazers and space cadets alike.
