Italy - Full Moon 105 - 04/24/05
Queue for Love
Populous a.k.a. Andrea Mangia has made a beguiling little record. "My Winter Vacation" is guested by Dose One of cLOUDDEAD fame who provides his rap to a restrained backing. "Queue for Love" has its influences in rap, electronica, folk and somehow makes it work. "Bunco" uses the vocals of Matilde of Italian band Studio Davoli, and the track is dreamy and atmospheric. The title "The Dixie Scene" hides a rhythmic, bubbly track with odd bird noises used in the flow of the song. Matilde returns for "Clap like Breeze" and more dreaminess ensues. This sweet little song would be an ideal song to soundtrack a romantic film.
This is a fine record.
