"Ovest," "Il Viaggio" and "Inside You" are guitar vignettes that echo bands like Tortoise and Durutti Column, albeit with a bit more prog rock camp. "Workin' Glam (Bob Sinplayer)" is a slightly absurd, Italo-flavored tune, and "Automobil Club Lugano" falls somewhere between those two poles. The pick of the litter is "Emptyness," a track that covers an absurd amount of ground in just three minutes. It begins with groaning ambient tones, soon followed by guitar licks and a seesawing synth melody, and finally a somber piano lead that could have come from a film noir soundtrack. It's a style not unlike what Darkside are after, except here it sounds more natural and understated.
On the B-side we switch gears entirely (a typical move for Acido) with a left-field techno track called "Opium" by Healing Force Project, a little-known producer who debuted on the label in 2010. This one is dark, subtle and psychedelic, with seemingly improvised drums cradling a mess of soothing white noise. As different as the two side are, both have the stylistic boldness that's become Acido's calling card.
