Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

Out of stock

Italian sax wizard/multi-instrumentalist/electronic musician (and one of Caribou's Italian favorites) Valerio Cosi comes back after 5 years of silence with a new LP entitled "Plays Popol Vuh". We're not sure if he meant to cover the original titles by the legendary Krautrock collective, because if you're enthusiastically devoted to the 70's band you'll have hard time to find their original melodies in Valerio's renditions. We're sure and proud to tell that the magic he spreads in his work is just beyond your imagination.
The modern classical suggestions of "Aguirre (In B Major: Stars Aligning)" (feat. Paul de Jong from The Books on cellos), the quasi-industrial/distopic visions of "Hosianna Mantra" (ending like a furious jam that would perfectly fit into a Swans' record), the unusual techno landscapes of "Affenstunde", the psychedelic trance of "Vuh" and the future-funk brilliance of "Train Through Time" trace new exciting paths into Valerio's electronic territories.
