Babalot «Non Sei Più» 
"What would you think if I sang out of tune, would you stand up and walk out on me?" once asked the famous drummer of a band previously quoted in this corner of cyberspace. If you didn't do it back then, you might as well give Babalot a chance, only to realize that it is, after all, a choice of style.
And stylish is what the new project of this Roman-based band actually is. Mr. Babalot and his friends of a lifetime are a nice bunch of straight sensitive guys, and their music reflects it. The cryptic lyrics include an interesting speculation on the fact that males should consider pissing standing up a privilege and not the norm, and hence should not abuse of the possibility. The music is played with an abundance of instruments and yet it's not clogged, with precious staccatos in 11/8.
Already too big to merit last.fm's coolest tag, their new release is distributed for free by - - - > Aiuola.
Leave a comment if you wanna book them for a night, they'll come for the booze plus travel expenses. (I'm serious).
