Ombra International returns with another five-track V/A monolith that reinforces the label’s international status. Each artist on Ombra 012 – Mike Sacchetti, Volta Cab, Zakmina, Salto Honduras and Pontias, all making their debut on Curses’ ever incisive label – hails from a different territory: Lithuania, Russia, Israel, Spain and France all representing… And all sounding deep, mysterious, sleazy, cosmic and alluring.
Dig deeper for more smouldering grooves as Mike Sacchetti’s “Dead As Disco” gets full-on psychedelic in an early 2000s Ewan Pearson kind of way with hints of end of the 1980s New Order’s sonority. “I wanted to capture the essence of Dark Disco music and mix it with the influence of Psychedelic Rock. For me, it’s a very emotional, introspective and melancholic track, but that’s just how I feel about it”, said Mike, whose contribution to this indispensable release ended up bringing an Indie Rock touch to the multi-genre compilation. that delivers something for everyone. It’s definitely another superlative EP from the Ombra family.
