Boomkat Product Review:
A stellar line-up combines to pay tribute to Czech typographer and cultural mover/shaker Karel Teige, with musicians like Johann Johannssonn, David Tibet (Current 93), Julia Kent (Antony & The Johnsons) and Baby Dee all helping out Italian avant-rockers Larsen in a performance held at the historic Teatro Colosseo in Torino. Sadly, this digital release inevitably misses out on the visual element captured on the CD+DVD format, but the audio remains a powerful force, and the Larsen sound is wonderfully fleshed out with this miscellany of avant-garde guest stars. Some of the band's customary darkness is missing from the performance, and there's a tangible sense of euphoria threatening to burst out of the mix, culminating in the enthralling, almost Sigur Ros-like quarter-hour finale. Very possibly the highlight of Larsen's recording career to date and a very special live recording by anyone's standards. Highly recommended.
