Ennio Morricone’s soundtrack for Il Serpente is just plain awesome. Many sides of the Morricone canon are represented well here–the sentimental, sweeping motifs he’s known for on films like La Donna Invisible, but the thriller sounds–discordant strings and experimental clatter also get a good look in. And then there’s the classic Ennio Morricone Italian lounge-pop freakout sound complete with waka-waka-waka guitars and a hyperactive rhythm section.
Il Serpente is definitely worth a listen or six–it’s rapidly becoming a repeated player on the Turntabling sound system and is not as easy to find as you might think. We have limited copies–order yours today to avoid missing out on this classic slab of Morricone goodness.
