A drums/organ duo from the South of Italy, Cannibal Movie mix experimental heavy drone and long form hypnosis on their two-track release, Mondo Music. I’ll let the pair call it in their own words:  “Cannibal Movie [are] exponents of new Italian occult psychedelic scene. They play drums and an old italian organ and their sound is a mix of obscure psychedelia, hypnotic tribalism and ecstatic magic tunes.” Fans of Expo 70 take note. Out now via Yerevan Tapes.
