With a theme stolen from Italian novelist Italo Calvino, each tune on "Invisible Cities" is a little world of its own, dense with rhythm and timbre. Hot horns blaze through intersecting lines, heavy percussion drives the band down winding streets, the bass rumbles in some subterranean corridor. This record is the follow-up to "Ghost Rock" and is informed by the band's ceaseless traveling and visits to places both real and unreal. Nomo busts up genres and musical borders with astonishing results. RIYL: Konono No. 1, Can, Fela Kuti, Mia, Moondog, Mulatu, Talking Heads.
