Roberto Cacciapaglia

The Ann Steel Album


Format: Vinyl LP

Out of stock

Repressed! "Roberto Cacciapaglia is an Italian electronic composer who's made albums using every possible permutation of the same six notes, right up to modern classical, with The Ann Steel Album as the weird anomaly. Made with an American model who moved to Italy to make it big in fashion, Roberto took her languid, Laurie Anderson-esque voice and created a detached futurist popstar. The odd sound of these European futurist pop songs make it sound like the machines are breathing, creating a weird organic/electronic rhythm section. It has to be heard to be believed. With fans ranging from Geologist and Avey Tare from Animal Collective, Deerhunter's Bradford Cox and Banjo or Freakout/Walls mainman Alessio Natalizia. The first time this album has been on vinyl since its initial small pressing in the '70s.

Dedicated to the life and work of Guglielmo Marconi

The expedition of the sound hunters starts off in Milan where the sounds are successfully captured amid dangers and difficulties.

The sounds preciously guarded in the tapes are tamed and mastered in London.
