This is the debut full-length release from Germany's Rockford Kabine (Anthony Sharas and Marlon Marlon). Italian Music -- 31 Invalid Movie Themes is instant-gratification snippet-pop -- the song format of astonishing efficiency. Clear and brief, but with each composition as short n' sweet as the pearls on a string, this release is the perfect soundtrack for smoky nights. Each loopy arrangement sounds like an Italian Spaghetti Western or a giallo thriller/soft-core porno score. Hypnotic beats, rock-without-rock, organic bass grooves and psychedelic guitar slivers draw from a cineastic parallel universe that waits for the appropriate visualization. Minimalistic old school downbeat and breakdance beats also provide an acoustic blueprint -- that's why Rockford Kabine sometimes describe their own sound as "acid smurf," working in small, intensely-packed batches to ensure the entire outcome is a huge, alluring travel-adventure.
