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."

"When you realize that your foot is tapping the rhythm and you feel like singing it means that the music is entering your soul, Federico Ficarra is one of those performers who makes you feel these emotions..."

“His songs confirm the idea I have of his musical approach, imbued with a sensitivity free from particular influences. A lot of expressiveness and a relaxation that does not hurt. Basically he is a person who sees and plays music with his own perspective, whatever it is, and this is not only positive, but also rare these days.”

Tolo Marton is the greatest rock guitarist in Italy according to Repubblica.

Always him in reference to the album Pissin'around released in October 2020:

"It seems to me a very good album, different and with interesting insights!"

Marton collaborated with Ian Paice, Roger Glover, and Don Airey of Deep Purple and received the Jimi Hendrix Electric Guitar Festival Prize in Seattle (USA) directly from James Allen Hendrix, Jimi's father.

"The street is their stage. Passers-by and Metro travelers are their audience. Berlin's street musicians are anything but amateurs who want to collect their daily tip. Some like Federico attended a conservatory and played in large concert halls.
Berlin is for him just a way station. His plan is to go to the USA."
