Title - 'La Chiamata'
Artist - Deadburger Factory

For those not in the know, originally know as simply Deadburger, the classic 5-player line-up became Deadburger Factory in 2013 and have never looked back.

An open ensemble created as a permanent experimentation collective, their brand new album, the just-released La Chiamata features some 20 musicians: the founding members Vittorio Nistri (electronics, keyboards, lyrics, arrangements, sound design), Simone Tilli (vocals), Alessandro Casini (guitars), and Carlo Sciannameo (bass guitar); along with some of the best Italian rock and avant-jazz musicians they could lay their hands on (see the full list below).

This large ensemble, unusual for an indie label, has ideological reasons. The collective nature of the album is a reaction to the growing isolation in our lives.

We believe we are social being alone in front of a screen; but every worker no longer feels like a member of a social class, but a abandoned dog; and so many musicians seem to withdraw into themselves, churning out homemade albums after albums in solitude (even before lockdown).

Ergo, this is a record against the age of self.

1. 'Onoda Hiiro' (4:39)
2. 'Un incendio visto da lontano' (5:06)
3. 'La chiamata' (5:44)
4. 'Tryptich' (5:51)
5. 'Tamburo sei pazzo' (7:21)
6. 'Manifesto cannibale' (9:07)
7. 'Blu quasi trasparente' (9:27)

Opening on the thunderously magnificent musical turmoil of 'Onoda Hiiro,' they back that up with the slinking ear worm 'Un incendio visto da lontano,' and then we get one of my own personal favorites, the avant-garde, transonic, melodic wrath of the title track, 'La chiamata.'

Up next on this captivating concept album is the industrial-emblazoned, changeling approach to their unique musical creations 'Tryptich,' which is itself followed by their idiosyncratically enhanced, spoken word crocheted masterpiece 'Tamburo sei pazzo,' with the album rounding out on two nine minute works of musical art: the strong-fisted, forthright 'Manifesto cannibale' and then closes on the more evocative, mid-tempo blues/prog rhythms of 'Blu quasi trasparente.'

Additional Musicians:
Silvia Bolognesi (Art Ensemble of Chicago), Bruno Dorella (OvO, Ronin, Bachi da Pietra), Enrico Gabrielli (PJ Harvey, Mike Patton, Steve Wynn, Damo Suzuki), Cristiano Calcagnile (Anthony Braxton, Tristan Honsinger, Buch Morris), Edoardo Marraffa (William Parker, Hamid Drake, Han Bennink, Wayne Horvitz, Wadada Leo Smith), and Zeno De Rossi (Anthony Coleman, Marc Ribot, Jamie Saft, Carla Bozulich).
