Glincolti – Glincolti [Go Down]

Bassano del Grappa is medieval town located in northern Italy: home of the ‘Grappa Liqueur’. This explains a lot.

Glincolti are an eccentric bunch. Distinct, and even quietly innovative, this likeable ensemble borrows from a number of retro sounds: funk, jazz and occasional smatterings of blues and prog. The result is a collection of songs that Mike Patton would be proud of.

In fact, like Patton, you can almost hear the band’s playful satisfaction: finding pleasure in seeing which tags serious musos bestow on their niche triumph. Well, to save them the trouble: Glincolti pluck from the sounds of their record collection, then piece them back together with distorted logic.
