Ys (Polydor, 1972)

Happy Monday WNUR fans! Here’s today’s track of the day, courtesy of Rock Show DJ Emai. Here’s what he has to say about Il Balletto di Bronzo:

If the Mars Volta had existed back in the 70s, it would have sounded somewhat like this. This psychedelic voyage is dark and gloomy with eerie voices and heavily distorted guitars. Ys was their only really memorable album but it’s so awesome that Il Balletto di Bronzo has become a cult band for prog and psych lovers. The whole album is basically one piece, so keep listening if you like this. Different “encounters” follow.
