Dilatazione, on record label release debut even if together since '99, from florence, cross the threshold of post-rock, stepping into more descriptive cinematographic face of genre, - hovering into a spiral of instrumental serpentines and mellifluous slow-downs, that calibrate a continuous crescendo of pleasantness, helped by trumpets, baritone sax, xylophone, besides usual means of style as guitars (rich with riffs), mathematical bass lines and excellent drumming (great work of outriding sticks). To dismiss the shadow of instumental bands, Amaury Cambuzat is special guest, that in return of vocals, harmonium, ebow on guitar and piano, takes back drummer Alessio Gioffredi's soul to introduce Him into Ulan Bator's latest line-up. Cambuzat's voice sings in french, and gives that plus of elegance and narrative take to the song-writing, from Cendre In e Cendre Out (these songs make me remember of italian gems Twig Infection (rip!)), even if a opus as Tutto si dimentica is brighten of a own light, even if voice-less, - anyway, that rude cut on the end of the track really lets You wonder 'whatthefuck... my cd has got something wrong..' - while it's planned.. what a pity, it was full of pathos.. Last, - the problem i see with the whole album is the excessive evocative lyrism, - so far from being radio-friendly and from the chorus-verse-chorus formula, - but being a choice of style (i read Dilatazione talk of cinephile rock), i'd say They reached the point, and the cinema is not so far.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
