Orange Car Crash is the solo project of Andrea Davi from Italian psyche wonders the Lay Llamas and the more dark, intense Mamuthones and the aptly named The Beautiful Bunker.
As with so much of the underground music coming out of Italy right now, categories become blunt tools for attempting to describe the sounds. What is it? Jazz? Ethnological Forgery? Psychedelic? Minimalist electronics? Percussion jams? Prog? All of the above? At once? And that's just the first track.
All songs composed by Andrea Davì a.k.a. Orange Car Crash except the lead melody of "Opposition" composed by Nicola Sanguin.
