(Leitmotiv - Shoegaze Italiano)

When you get away from mainstream music, there's a whole universe out there going on while you aren't looking. And it's happening all over the world, in every country on the planet, in seemingly every town.

Leitmotiv is an Italian band going under the alternative/psych/shoegaze/experimental category. They've been around for a few years and their first album came out in 2008. They're from the southeastern part of Italy with one member from France tossed in for good measure. This track, Balocchi is the first cut off the album. It's atmospheric and densely layered, and the spoken lyric adds a touch of moody cinema to the whole thing.

Check out their page if you get the chance - and give this one a listen while you're at it.
