why we love this

Bright sounds with movements that evoke a ball moving through a pinball machine. Papiro takes you through a range of sonic perceptions within the space of a single album.

about the record

Papiro’s approach to music is never technical, but always personal. Since the mid-90s, he has released a handful of noteworthy albums, each carefully put together and seemingly self-contained, yet all sharing an unmistakable musical language and a certain escapist aura. La Finestra Dentata (The Toothed Window) is no exception. It includes both studio and concert recordings from 2016 to 2020. The sounds on this album appear infinite and full of marvels, ingenious in portraying imaginary creatures and environments.

The title track and Anelli take up most of the first side and include live outtakes. These swirly symphonies are specifically intended as immersive deep-listening experiences for concert venues, and have been edited for this album to meet the physical demands of vinyl and domestic use. However, those who know Papiro only from the stage might be unaware of a different side to his oeuvre; starry-eyed miniatures that may appear frivolous in comparison to the more heady tracks, but are nonetheless well worth discovering.

Each piece adds a chapter to a phantasmagoric world populated by such characters as "Giant Duckling," "King Hard-Beard," or the "Bodulator." Tracks like the opener "Odilon" or "Il triciclo nascosto," meanwhile, emanate a candor rarely found in the domain of serious music, and revisit Papiro’s early days of instrumental storytelling.
