Why do we like this?

Italian producer/multi-instrumentalist Leonardo Salvaro goes by the name "florestano" when he's not busy running Kowloon Records.

Not only is his LP, Noh, the first release for his newly launched London-based music label, but it also happens to be his debut album under the adopted alias as well.

Like his first single, "7 of Diamonds," "Red Stool" takes on multiple personalities, though it's more settled compared to the 10 minute excursion that is its predecessor. That said, it's not the type of song that transforms into something radically different with each transition. There is a consistency with off-kilter beats, a glistening synth, and certain concocted melodies remaining as an audible constant that prevents the track from spiraling into mindless randomness.

"Red Stool" is more about florestano's ability to weave what's already there into different arrangements to maintain its vigor, as opposed to throwing in as many musical trinkets as possible for the sake of avoiding redundancy. The final two minutes feel like an exception considering it more or less rings similar to the verse before it. But the simple act of making it sound bolder and fuller delivers a vitality that will have you listen through to the very end.
