john greenwood I could listen to this for hours. Calibro paints a landscape and a story with music. This is great thinking music, my mind starts firing at the drop of the needle on the vinyl. Vinyl edition is fantastic. Get it if at all possible. Favorite track: A Future We Never Lived.

about

Recorded at Toe Rag Studios in London, Record Kicks proudly presents "S.P.A.C.E". the awaited new album from the legendary Italian cinematic funk combo Calibro 35 sampled by Dr.Dre in " Compton".

Recorded on tape on a 8 tracks tape recorder at the analog Mecca Toe Rag Studios in London, the worldwide famous studio where The White Stripes penned "Elephant", S.P.A.C.E. is the 5th studio album by Calibro 35. Forget about gripping noir atmospheres of their previous full lengths, with the new album the Milan Combo escapes from planet earth and lands on their own satellite to write the perfect funk soundtrack of an imaginary SciFi movie directed by Sergio Leone.

Thrown away the balaclavas and embraced a bunch of synthesizers, in their new installment Calibro 35 explores new territories. From the storming imaginary main title notes of the title track "S.P.A.C.E." to the percussive effects and creepy organ of "Serenade for a satellite" with incursions into cosmic afrobeat ("Ungwana Bay Launch Complex"), lunar funk ("Bandits On Mars") and trippy atmospheres ("Something Happened on Planet Earth") in S.P.A.C.E. Calibro 35 sounds as cinematic and groovy as ever. Captured live and direct to tape with no overdubbing or editing facilities by Tommaso Colliva (Muse/Franz Ferdinand), the sound is tough, warm and super tight and confirms the unique musicianship of the band able in few years to gain followers worldwide.

Described by Rolling Stone magazine's as "the most fascinating, retro-maniac and genuine thing, that happened to Italy in the last years", Calibro 35 enjoys a worldwide reputation as one of the coolest independent band around. Music by Calibro 35 has been used on Dr.Dre hip hop album of the year "Compton" ("One Shot One Kill feat Snoop Dog") and by Jay-Z ("Picasso Baby"), Child of Lov & Damon Albarn ("One Day") and hip hop supergroup Demigodz ("The Summer Of Sam"). They've played major venues and festivals all over Europe, with several trips playing the States and as unique musicians they've collaborated with amongst the others, PJ Harvey, Mike Patton, John Parish and Stewart Copeland. Get ready and be prepared to wear spacesuits, Calibro 35 are back and are about to lead you to new imaginary territories full of groove!
