The venerable Colin Geddes recently turned me onto the musical stylings of Umberto. The brain-child of Kansas City maestro Matt Hill, it doesn't take long to pinpoint his artistic influences. The prog-rock synth of Goblin and John Carpenter permeates Umberto's work, but I also see other artists like Jean Michel Jarre and Fred Mollin filter through on occasion, as well. That's some good company. Here below, is a taste.
A handy YouTube playlist of fourteen Umberto tracks can be found here. This has basically been my background music for several days now. Enjoy!
