Italy's Raffaele Martirani, AKA Panoram, returns with what is, if we're counting correctly, his sixth album-length outing, and his second for Gerd Janson's Running Back label. Leftfield, psychedelic and Balearic grooves are Martini's stock-in-trade, and the 12 tracks featured here run the gamut from gentle piano pieces like 'Blank Sheep' and the almost Disney-esque 'Flat Stones', via the introspective, cinematic 'Squid For A Day', the ethereal 'Bucolica' and the looping, dusty 'Dove Done Come', to haunting, off-kilter explorations like 'Ages' and 'There Is A Hole Here'. Unapologetically experimental and doodlesome, it won't be to everyone's taste but it'll be lapped-up gleefully by those whose ears are allergic to the rhythmically and melodically predictable.
