You don’t know what you’re missing. After a 5-years long hiatus, Vinicio Capossela, my long-time favourite artist finally gave birth to his new work of art. “Ovunque proteggi” is an amazing CD: I still have to grasp all of it, but looks like Vinicio is at his best ever in quite a few tracks. If you like Tom Waits, John Fante and Charles Bukowski, and if you’re not scared by exploring weird and ever-changing musical atmospheres, Capossela is a guy you shouldn’t be missing: it might be difficult to get a hold of his recordings outside Italy, but it’s well worth the effort.
I, for one, am looking forward to his next Milan concert, due April 10th: I have fond memories of every single Vinicio venue I attended, so there is no way I’m going to miss the next one. You shouldn’t, too.
