Fik y las Flores Molestas is the name with which Federico chose to group the various collaborations in the studio and live, on the streets and in the clubs, which accompanied him in the representation of his music.

Today Fik performs as a soloist or in trio formation with Amedeo Schiavon (drums), Massimo Zago (drums), Fabio Barbaro (bass) and Majd Arrif (bass).

 

There is certainly no shortage of featuring with dancers and wind instrument players: Federico has organized numerous parades in marching band formation in Berlin, Padua and Venice, thus having the opportunity to collect the contacts of many musicians. 

The album Primavera was released on April 19th, visit the "Music" section to read the reviews and read Rockit interview in the "Fik" section!

MUSIC

"With the arrival of the beautiful season, the "Spring" of Fik y las Flores Molestas blossoms: the album of this collective based in Padua is enriched by the collaboration of the musician Fosco 17 during the production phase, and sees the light distributed in total independence.

Ten tracks (among these, a cover) to compose a structured, organic listening proposal with interesting (and unusual) stratifications: the album, as those directly involved say, explores new sounds, leaving us to presume the intention of into play and leave creative fields that are already widely explored. It's natural to find episodes in the tracklist that gravitate between pop and alternative, before suddenly turning to Afro, samba and surf rock sounds: everything is amalgamated through the firm and attentive hand of the artists directly involved, both in their recording sessions and in the laboratory. post-production files.

Time in the company of Fik y las Flores Molestas passes quickly and lightly, thanks to careful choices and with the boost of healthy enthusiasm, far from convenient solutions and trendy styles for the vast majority of recording products. Positioning yourself in the alternative scenario with a publication like this is significant, and getting "Primavera" to as many people as possible will make the leap in quality and important artistic growth possible."

 

Giandomenico Piccolo - Rockit Magazine

While the first leaves were starting to turn yellow, we started playing "Pissin'around" by Las Flores Molestas and, miracle, autumn suddenly became just a mirage. Merit of the Paduan band that with its load of colorful Latin jazz'n'roll made us forget the first cold of the season and embraced it with tropical rhythms and the sun of good music. This is a really well played album where you can hear, practically in every single harmonic passage, how much fun the band members had to record it. Take the second track, "Hakuna Matata!" and tell us if you too, roughly around 1.15, didn't feel an urge to get up from your armchair and start dancing in the living room.


Here, in our opinion, this fact of extreme sociality of Paduan music is perhaps their greatest merit: this is an album to be listened to in company, perhaps even better together with a group of friends or, why not, even among strangers who then in the end we always get to know each other.


After all, music also and above all serves to create bonds and "Pissin'around" is certainly an excellent help in doing this. Honorable mention then for the final track, "At the Station Intimate Version" which revealed to us a more romantic and tormented side of Las Flores Molestas, which we would love to explore in their next works.

"A Caisa Drum, a Stratocaster and an original idea of experimental music

I had some thoughts before listening, some waste from the day, but then during the dadaist tracklist of Play + Rec everything faded away. To really understand this duo, however, we must start from their idea of music and their instruments.

Stefano Cosi hits his Caisa Drum, a sort of Hang Drum, into which he inserts a ping pong ball if necessary. Then, in addition to recording his thunderous laughter, he plays the drums, a distorted cello, a Kalimba Sansula with the Wah Wah incorporated, an instrument that imitates the sound of the wind. Federico Ficarra instead takes up the Stratocaster electric guitar to which he adds various "Live Electronics" effects.

The result cannot be explained. You can only sit there, still, and listen. Stefano and Federico define their creations as experimental (definitely), rock (in the approach) and ambient (as instrumental songs without singing).

Some passages might recall samba, others Tibetan bells, still others are hypnotic. The fingers on the Caisa Drum seem to chase rhythms of ancestral tribes, while the other sounds enrich the atmosphere.

There is no more right or better time than another to press play on this album. Because there is always a thought to banish. Of course, if you want, you can crush Rec on your reactions."
