Breaking away from preconceptions of Italian soundtracks as either giallo synth scores or Morricone-esque melodramas, Musica Per L’Immagine II picks up the story with a 12-track collection of spaced-out disco, curious electronic soundscapes and crisp jazz-funk.

Described by Lorenzo as “more cinematic” than the previous instalment, Musica Per L’Immagine II is released on 2xLP via Fly By Night Music, and vinyl be available from 2nd November.
