The First Born is quite aptly the first collaboration between Fabio Orsi more than a recurring name in the In A Silent Place catalogue and Mamuthones - better known to friends and family as Alessio Gastaldello and founding member and drummer of Jennifer Gentle, the Italian psych band signed to Sub Pop Records.
After six years with the Jennifers, Alessio split amicably in late and reinvented himself as Mamuthones, a one-man project delving into primitive percussive jamming and equally primitive one-finger astral keyboard-playing.
After a telematic chance meeting with The Battle - Fabio Orsi & Mamuthones - The First Born Orsi, now the crowned prince of the Italian experimental noise, this album slowly started taking shape via e-mails and file-sharing.
From the splashing cymbals and martial beat of the title track Timshel - Mumford & Sons - Sigh No More the hypnotic surge of "The infinity within" or the ritualistic feast of "The battle", the whole album feels You And Me - Various - Bikini an ancient sea ebbing and flowing on some distant alien shore, making for a curiously disjointed listening experience, at the same time peaceful and menacing.
The ever-shifting sonic textures evoke both the starchildren krautrockers of old and more recent outer-world explorers but always keep a strong personal identity, firmly rooted in the current weird Italian take on space rock.
