AMN Reviews: Ou – Scrambled! [Public Eyesore PE132]

R-7073465-1433088662-9144.jpegOu—a Rome-based Sardinian sextet—sound like no other group. Scrambled! is their second release, a set of music written by Ersilia Prosperi, the group’s trumpeter/flugelhornist/ukulele player. The nine songs, sung by Martina Fadda with the assistance of the others, are an uncategorizable collection of cheerfully skewed post-art songs in a babble of languages—Sardinian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, English and Pygmy, several of them often occurring in the same song. The arrangements are colorful, the rhythms delightfully off-center, and the logic dreamlike.
