Bruno Nicolai & Fiorenzo Carpi "Un Bianco Vestito Per Mariale'" Gemelli GG.ST.10.021 1975
So yeah, above all else, as cheesy as it sounds, I want music to give me goosebumps. Psych out fuzz, Weird electronics and experimentalism is great but tends to leave me feeling somewhat cold. The first song on this, "Mariale" is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, Nicolai does that classical harpsichord lick so many times on his scores and it gets me every time. When the key change ascends in the middle I get gnarly goosebumps, very nice. Fiorenzo Carpi is credited to the music and Nicolai to the direction, but this record sounds so Nicolai to me, I imagine he had a huge hand in these compositions. Also remember that psych out experimenting I referred to, well those are here too, "La Vittima" & "Pelle Di Luna" are both great fuzzy tribal jams. The Gemelli label was founded by Nicolai and possibly Carpi as well and these Gemelli releases are very small runs and not too easy to find either. Unlike other small run labels, these releases are very high quality, with heavy cardboard and sturdy vinyl. Enjoy some Nicolai from my personal collection ripped @320K. Chris Tillotson GET IT HERE!
