The Invisibles EP: First Act!A fine blend of Pop and Vintage Jamaican Offbeat
In June 2013 The Invisibles released their first EP, First Act! containing 8 tracks, recorded and produced by Robert Curiel (Dubcellar, Amsterdam) and Enrico Cioccolini Gotink, then mastered at The Soundmasters in London by Kevin Metcalfe.
The album contains 8 tracks, whose 3 are original songs by Enrico Cioccolini Gotink: The Very Last Tango, Don’t Let me Down and the instrumental HTLITCJ (Hard Time Livin’ In The County Jail). Four of them are covers, like the 80’s pop hit Such a Shame by Talk Talk, then a tune by Henri Mancini, titled Meglio Stasera (also known as It’d Better Be Tonight, recently performed and published by Michael Bublé), which is part of Pink Panther’s movie soundtrack where it’s beautifully sang in Italian by Fran Jeffreys, the charming Città Vuota, Mina‘s Italian version of a minor American soul classic, It’s a Lonely Town by Gene McDaniels, and then again Jamaica Farewell, a mento song written by Lord Burgess and made famous by Harry Belafonte, borrowing a horns’ riff from The Skatalites in Enrico’s arrangement. At the end of the album comes a powerful dubwise by Robert Curiel, The Very Last Dub, amazingly produced thanks to the recorded material of The Very Last Tango and Robert’s absolute genius.
The album is downloadable on iTunes, streamable on Spotify, Deezer and on almost all the main music online streaming services.
