It's tempting to wonder whether Kansas City producer Matt Hill should have taken the alias "Umberto Echo," given how faithfully he mimics bygone sounds -- specifically, Italian horror-film scores from the '70s and '80s. His third album could easily be mistaken for a long-lost Dario Argento soundtrack, complete with ominous synth swells, tubular bells, gravelly choir patches and a general sense of lo-fi mystery. It's all underpinned by Giorgio Moroder's robo-disco pulse, rounding out the perfect soundtrack to any night drive -- zombie hitchhikers optional.
