30TH CENTURY RECORDS

Daniele Luppi, is probably most famous for arranging Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy", but he really caught our attention when he collaborated with Danger Mouse on "Rome" back in 2011. This album sees the Italian composer collaborate with Piccadilly favourites Parquet Courts as he heads north in his native country to bring us "Milano". The album's influence is Milan in the mid 80's and provides us with a snapshot of the city as he remembers it - from the flashy glamour of the time to it's dark underbelly. Parquet Courts do what they do best, providing a raw urgency, with jagged guitars and nonchalant vocals, and Karen O makes a few appearances to add a bit of Yeah Yeah Yeah's swagger to proceedings. 
In a way, it's sort of a sequal to "Rome", but it's a very different beast altogether.

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: This collaboration sees Italian composer Daniele Luppi and shop favourites Parquet Courts coming together in a cacophony of snarling indie and clashing energetic percussion, topped (in the most part) by Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeah's fame. Cue much off-kilter rhythmic showboating and moaning vocals. So much so in fact, that Matt asked me if I was listening to porn on my headphones. I was not. Excellent all-round, everything you'd expect from this calibre of musician.
