My friend Scott turned me onto this project the other night. The project of Kansas City's Matt Hill, Umberto makes astonishingly authentic-sounding cinematic synth music in the vein of 70's horror score luminaries like John Carpenter and Goblin. If you listened to this without knowing it was made recently, you'd swear it was made in a smokey studio with a bunch of bearded Italian guys twisting knobs of impossibly complicated modulars in 1975. The composition, synth sounds, and lo-fi production is all incredibly dead-on. Anyway, fun stuff. Break it out at your next Halloween party or goat sacrifice and impress your friends.

Really reminds me of something that belongs in a Lucio Fulci movie.
