Bradipos Iv, The
After two years from their last EP entitled "The Partenophonic Sound Of The Bradipos Four", the surf combo has gone back to the studio, influenced from their Californian tour. More than the Ocean the inspiration came from the desert met to reach Las Vegas and Joshua Tree. An instro album more than a surf one, even if their opening track is a cover originally written by Ray Hunt and played for the first time in 1961 from the Surfmen. Two more cover, A Heartful Of Nothing written by Chris Barfield and Siboney written by Ernesto Lecuona, among nine new and original songs. Not so close to the classical surf, rather with a personal touch, that has been a trademark for this Italian band from the beginning. An album dominated by the minor tones and so a little bit melancholic, as the artwork remind us, and always well-planted feed on the Mediterranean origins.
