And I am happy to write that this album is not shit, so, I can save myself the embarrassment of bumping accidentally into Lally and pretend to look to the other side of the sidewalk.
Just kidding. I remember a guy (not his name) from Gregor Samsa who worked on the same street where Guy Picciotto lived, and, more or less, he told us 'holy shit, I see every day Guy Picciotto going to buy bread in my street.' Now I just have to find out what bakery mr. Lally goes to, and then I'll give a call to the Samsa guy: 'you know, pal, I understand your feelings now'.
Such bullshits told, - Lally's third solo record has the taste of the funky alternative recordings from the early 70's, silently groovy, smokily rock, although never aggressive even when it spins faster (Ken-Gar, Coral And Starfish, Last Of The Civilized); more vivid, rhythmic and less minimalist than his previous Nothing Is Underrated, dated 2007: of course, bass is still the prima donna and backbone for these tracks and the other instruments - helped out by Elisa Abela and Emanuele Tomasi, - detailed percussions and guitar's electricity, - low distortion level. Add organ, cello, flute. Here, the flute on Revealed In Fever is the perfect oil lotion for the dancing angry body of this song, seductive and menacing, - my favorite track, I think.
Lally's vocals are always that low tone you know him for: mellow, calm yet not whispered, in the way of "tension turns to the necessary", - like he sings on the album's titletrack Why Should I Get Used To It - a charming blues guided by an indie rock bass riff. More bass phrasing on the clapping Fort Campbell KY, Let It Burn, - a short vertigo scale on Last Of The Civilized, - all sounds very enjoyable, - never beyond the line, to be frank, yet, honest and groovy.
And last but not least, there's a naked girl on the record's cover.
PS. Don't miss this good interview (english/italian) on kultunderground.
not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
