Four years since their first release, La Batteria, one of the most brilliant Italian bands in the field of instrumental music, is finally coming back with their brand new second album. Seventy minutes of music spanning 18 tracks on four sides of a double, gatefold LP to be released on April the 5th by Penny Records & Goodfellas. Against the rules of today-s market and more in the 70s classic rock tradition, here is a consistent double album carrying both the band's typical cinematic atmospheres and the four members individual experiences and personal taste. It's a sort of musical journey where different ages and genres melt together within the Roman band's unique style. Through the various tracks you can easily find the complex writing of Fonderia (the other band of members Bultrini, Vicarelli and Pecorelli) and the peculiar rhythmic groove of Nerattini's hip-hop productions, and the endless cross-contamination coming from their common project of the Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio. Prog-rock, funk, hip-hop, classical music, electronics, Latin grooves, Italo-disco, psychedelia and hard rock, all perfectly melt together in a fascinating new work which places the band in the great Italian tradition of music for images, luckily far from being a mere copy of an unrepeatable age.
