Italian soundtrack funk that sounds like Goblin recording at Stax! - Wax Poetics Magazine

There's one thing that Italians do better than others; funky soundtracks. Quentin Tarantino knows best, soundtracks from Italian movies of the '60s and the '70s are the THING! Calibro 35 does with music what Tarantino does with films. They borrow what they love and they make it their own. With Rolling Stone magazine's words Calibro 35 are the most fascinating, retro-maniac and genuine thing, that happened to Italy in the last years, think; The Budos Band meets Morricone.

After been sampled by Damon Albarn on his latest The child of lov album, Calibro 35 land on Record Kicks with their new album Traditori di Tutti, the forth LP by Milan's combo, inspired by noir masterpiece novel Betrayers published by the father of Italian noir, award-winning and Tarantino's crime fiction favorite author; Giorgio Scerbanenco. The album contains only the band's original recordings, from the floor-shaking first single Giulia Mon Amour to the groovy The Butcher's Bride, from deep funky Filthy Bastards to the dancefloor jazz madness of Mescalina 6, the five-piece pays homage to the masters such us Morricone, Micalizzi and Bacalov with 12 tracks full of funky beats, heavy guitars, groovy bass lines and fuzzy organs.

The band started back in 2007 when Grammy award candidate, producer Tommaso Colliva (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Twilight Singers) invited some of the best musicians from the Italian indie scene - Enrico Gabrielli (Mike Patton, John Parish), Massimo Martellotta (Stewart Copeland, Adrian Younge), Luca Cavina (Retox, Zeus!), Fabio Rondanini (John Parish, Daniel Johnston) - to record some Italian golden age soundtracks. What started as a studio b-side project evolved into a full time band able to release three heavily acclaimed albums and to tour extensively around Europe, including - to name just a few - at festivals like Eurosonic in Groningen, SXSW in Austin Texas, Nova Rock Festival in Austria and CMJ in New York. Songs taken from Calibro's albums have also been included in numerous soundtracks including Hollywood blockbuster RED starring John Malkovich and Bruce Willis, Gli Angeli Del Male directed by Michele Placido, Said directed by Joseph Lefevre and Eurocrime directed by Mike Malloy. With crime funk Italians do it better...

Yahoo Music US
"They say Italian’s do it better and that is definitely the case when it comes to Calibro 35. The Milan based band remake 60’s and 70’s Italian film soundtracks and they do it with such energy and skill you can almost see the car chases happening before your eyes."
Get to the Front
"“Calibro 35 is just fun for the listeners! A wild mixture of jazz, surf and electrical sounds, to be settled somewhere between the Euro Boys and Bootsy Collins. Let´s hope Quentin Tarantino will listen to this record someday, the soundtrack to this movie would be impressing."
Alternative Nation Magazine
"Milan’s Calibro 35 has evolved into something much more, creating original pieces that rival some of their inspirations in range and “jam kicking”"
Alarm Magazine
"From Milan, Italy, Calibro 35 plays brassy jazz and funk inspired by soundtracks to Italian crime cinema of the ’70s… served with spirit as well as technical competency… a blast in a live setting"
Wall Street Journal
