So after a pretty long haitus, Constelaltion Records is back with it's first new release of the year. And again, its something of a new direction for the label. Glissandro 70 is a project of Sandro Perri (polmo polpo) and Craig Dunsmuir (Guitarkestra) and is one of those records that for some reason doesn't last long enough but at the same time, if there was any more of it it would get incredibly annoying. The five tracks here, clocking in at about 35 mins, are mini pop, dub and dance symphonies. Each one sounding totally different to anything else the label has released. Whilst im on the subject of releases, if you are thinking of getting this because of the Polmo Polpo connection, dont expect it to sound anything like it, it isnt.
Each of the tracks on here varies wildly from one to another, opening with the short and simple guitar battle of Something, the album quickly moves into different terrain and becomes much more infectious. Stand out track Bolan Muppets is a great slice of melodic drone pop, its simple guitar line gets a kick up the arse half wat through with the addition of a very simple beat and some chanted vocals. That makes it sound bad, but really it's not. Maybe the vocals on this album are the best part. At no point are more than three different lines sang in a row. Just a few simple words, often stolen from some random 70's band, chanted and whispered. Portugal Rua Rua flows along like a breeze, Again the song is immensly simple, sparse guitars and rhythmic drumming. Its nice, but again the vocals at the beginning lend a hand to this, somehow it almost reminds me of fellow Constellation friends Fly Pan Am (especially on their last album).
Though the problem here, well..with the whole album is that it doesnt fit into anything.

HASH(0x919af1bc) out of 5 stars the (r)evolution of Constellation Records 31 Aug. 2008
By David M. Madden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Constellation label is responsible for possibly the most wandering, messy (yet addictive) post-rock music known to man. But they're also heavier on the non-complacent artist than business types, so it's no surprise to hear someone like Glissandro 70 on the roster. While the tenuous duo (Sandro Perri of Polmo Polpo and Craig Dunsmuir of Guitarkestra) do visit strange territories, they focus their work on largely pulse-oriented and pastoral explorations. Single guitar notes are lovingly tweaked (digitally, but it translates as very organic) and layered alongside birdcalls; Amazonian war cries make friends with shakers, detuned cello drones and quasi-funk riffs; Perri and Dunsmuir turn chants (credited as "inspired by" Talking Heads and Juan Atkins tracks) into rhythmic beds over which they serve echoing wah-wah notes and bubbling electronics. For the closer, "End West," they snatch elements from the previous pieces for a 13-minute finale, something one might call "boot-stomping" or "trancey," or any number of lazy descriptions. As oddball as all this seems, the result is a very tasteful, gorgeous, listenable disc full of nooks and crannies you won't catch until 30 listens in. Yes, that is a guarantee that you won't tire of it for at least that long.

HASH(0x919af408) out of 5 stars www.undressmerobot.com review: 22 July 2006
By Yurij Lojko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Identification: Craig Dunsmuir and Sando Perr, originally teaming up for a muted tunes weblog project, digged each other's sound so much that they stuck together long enough to make the self-titled Glissandro 70. It sounds like a cross between Animal Collective's (folky, loopy & experimental-ly rock) endearing loops/droney vocals and Don Caballero's (indie post rockers) careful guitar instrumentation with a touch of afro-beat/funk flair.

Robot Loves: The REALLY GREAT combination of earthy loops and post-rock guitar riffs that turn out to be extremely catchy and highly listenable; the consistently simple yet highly enjoyable structures, lyrics, instrumentation & loops of each song; the structure of the album itself in having a short 3 minute intro song and a long 13 minute outro song with 7 minute songs in between; every song but especially the buildup of "Portugal Rua Rua" and the dancableness and harmonica use of "Analogue Shantytown."

Robot Hates: The shortness of the album (5 songs = 35 minutes)

Final Diagnostic: A very decent, original & enjoyable, but terse, freshman effort.

Reminds Robot of: Don Caballero, Animal Collective, Faraquet, Liars, !!!
