"I've first heard TELEFONO BALAFONO a few years ago on a (now) prehistoric myspace website and i almost fell from my chair.
A raw and plastic collection of music compositions recorded on a "broken 4 track cassette recorder" as stated by the artist that mixes unknown keyboards and drum machines with a no wave twist that for the time of the recordings was already predicting the economical-ethical crisis we're living in the now. Each fragment doesn't exceed the 3 minutes of lenght creating short audio-visual voyages that continously send back to the italian cinematic and tv imagery.
On the other side HERBAL RESEARCH is the moniker for italian musician Cristiano Carosi (Sea Dweller, Telepathics) who debuts with this 15 minutes of fluid sonic waves using vintage Crumar sinthesizers and elaborated loops and samples in the attempt to bring you the benefits of the analogue electronic using frequencies as a solution to your reumatisms. 14 minutes of audio images for what could be a lost soundtrack to the classic post-pasolinian cult movie "Amore Tossico" from a present prospective."
