Braen's Machine (Alessandroni & De Filippi) "Temi Ritmici E Dinamici" Liuto 197? 320K
This is probably my favourite record i own, it's very special to me. I downloaded this from somewhere a while back and totally fell in love with it. I searched. what seemed like forever and finally found it. Braen's Machine on this album is a pseudonym for either Giolamo Ugolini or Alessandro Alessandroni and Awake(Rino De Filippi). I feel like there was a bunch of controversy over who had a hand in these compositions but for me I have to go by my ears. Yes Awake is only credited to the second half of this masterpiece but come on just listen to the odd timing harpsichord stabs, jazzy chord changes, you can't tell me Filippi didn't have a hand in side A. Also Alessandroni is in my opinion (which ain't worth shit) also a main contributer, not only did they record numerous records together, including Underground but this record is Braen's Machine, not Ugolini's machine, I'm just saying. A major departure from their previous record, "Underground", instead of psych fuzz, we get a laid back funk album. Supposedly, this album was used for some Italian television sports broadcasts. I have to say, the standout for me is the bass playing, it is so incredible, i couldn't imagine ever coming up with that kind of melodic and rhythmic magic. The drums for both Braen's Machine albums are very distinct, super compressed and driving, i really dig it. So as "Underground" just melts my brain, this album just makes me feel very happy, and i'll take some happiness any day. From my personal collection, Enjoy! GET IT HERE!
