Homunculus Res - Andiamo in Giro di Notte e ci Consumiamo nel Fuoco (2020)


The fourth album from this Italian band.

The band is a quintet with a lineup of glockenspiel, percussion, drums, bass, guitars, keyboards, piano, organ, synths and vocals.

The album also had contributions from guest musicians providing woodwinds, vibraphone, viola, banjo, bass, vocals and electric piano.

This band is one of the more remarkable bands in the new RPI scene. Yes, their music is Rock Progressive Italiano.

It is not RPI as in symphonic prog, though.

Take a lot of Caravan, the early Soft Machine and add some Picchio Del Pozzo and Area to the mix too. The result is Canterbury scene prog with some Italian avant-garde and folk rock implemented into the sound.

The Italian vocals are both good and quirky. The music is quirky and eclectic. 

The band has found their sound and their niche and I hope they are not giving up as this band has again given us a very good album, rich on originality, quality and quirkiness. 

Check out this album.
