Toronto-based Sandro Perri has been involved in the music biz for well over a decade, performing under different monikers and putting out 13 albums scattered between said monikers. Today he’s being addressed as Sandro Perri and his recently released seven-track LP, Impossible Spaces, is really picking up speed (understandably so).
I first heard Sandro Perri while listening to satellite radio and his debut track, “Changes,” came on, and I couldn’t not write down his name to research later because what I was hearing was way too good to ignore. “Changes” is seven and a half minutes of glorious, eclectic and glowing space disco. That’s right, space disco. Sandro Perri has a gratifying grasp on melding electronically atmospheric instruments with classic drums, guitars, flutes and truly soothing vocals. The sum of Impossible Spaces is a truly beautiful instrumentally innovative album which oozes genuine integrity and pleasure.
If you haven’t heard this album yet, I urge you to become exposed. Chances are you haven’t heard many other projects like it and you just may get hooked. Its freshness cannot be denied.
