The forthcoming Mutazione compilation from Strut aims to catalog "the under-acknowledged realm of Italian underground electronic music and new wave, recorded during a time of extreme political turmoil [in the country] during the '80s." One such outfit featured on the comprehensive, 26-track collection is Carmody, whose loose, ethereal "Vulcani" appears early on in the two-disc offering—which, incidentally, was put together by Alessio Natalizia, perhaps better known as half of the production duo Walls. While a compilation of this size is bound to hold a diverse array of music, Carmody's contribution seems an appropriate representative of what to expect on Mutazione—a slightly cold, synth-laden expedition into the music of Italy's early, politically-charged electronic pioneers.
