Musica che filtra luce e buio, che culla i sensi nella pacata beatitudine, - cosí apre il nuovo cd dei Charles Atlas, in un lento incedere che si lascia poi elevare dal canto di una voce di donna. - Loro sono di S. Francisco_usa, come base, cioè Charles Wyatt (ex Piano Magic, Dart, - poi collaborazioni eccellenti tra cui l'ultima con Jessica Bailiff), Matt Greenberg e Sacha Galvagna, - Lui ex Rosa Mota / Horsepower (sniff sniff..), già incontrato e lodato + volte su koma ^_^. - Avevo provato ad aiutarli ad organizzare delle date qui in italia, ma come al solito nessuno mi ha letteralmente cagato.. pubblico&bookingagencies dimmerda. - Cmq, i Charles Atlas sono pura sound-track, su questo disco con leggerissimo retrogusto 6o's nella spolverata elettronica (Strategies for Success Boxes), mentre il precedente disco sembrava + guitar driven. - Strumentali e sognanti, nell'agititatissima e angosciosa (senti One Foot Under) fase r.e.m.. Chitarra su giri di corde ipnotici, tastiere/piano, riflessivi e rilassanti (Sun With Teeth, Elysium), o persi in vortici di feedback da delay/echo (Italian Air). Poche percussioni (di natura drum_machine), sensazioni di stare alla deriva da qualche parte. - Per aiutarVi a riaprire gli occhi la mattina in tarda ora, - o x chiuderli in una notte insonne, - Molto Consigliati.

Music able to blend light and darkness, to swindle Your senses in a quiet bliss, - that's how Charles Atlas's new album opens introducing its-self, in a slow gait, that a female inspired voice brings higher as the song grows on. They're from S. Francisco_usa, as head quarter, seeing Charles Wyatt (already in Piano Magic, Dart, - and recently collaborating with Jessica Bailiff), Matt Greenberg e Sacha Galvagna, - our well known Rosa Mota / Horsepower member (sniff sniff..), more than once loved and met ^_^ here on koma. Charles Atlas are pure movie/dream-scores writers, half-tragic sound tracks, with a very light 6o's electronic dust after taste (Strategies for Success Boxes), - former ep sounded to be more guitar driven. Anyway, once more instrumental and dreaming on the excited and distressed r.e.m. phase (listen to One Foot Under), guitar riffs on hypnotical notes, keybs/piano, bass, thoughtful and relaxing (Sun With Teeth, Elysium), or lost in a vortex of delay feedback (Italian Air), few low drum machine beats, - it feels like You are adrift somewhere. Music to gently wake up and open again Your eyes, or close them in a night when You cannot sleep.. Warmly suggested..

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