3 stars "Un'estate senza pioggia" is a mysterious album by Matteo Uggeri, and it starts off with the beautiful sounds of lightly amplified electric guitar, but various organic sounds soon appear within the soundscape. Most of the sound is electronic, but has a strong base in organic texture that really makes everything seem comfortable and homey.

Although the buzzings, clings and clangs, slightly disrupting resonances, beautifully organic field recordings, musical instruments, and glitching elements are present here, it all seem to lack the coherence of Uggeri's later work. It seems weird to say that, this being experimental electronic music, after all. But it is hard not to feel that this all seems much more random than "The Distance" or "Autumn Is Coming, We're All In Slow Motion", which both seem to focus on keeping each field recording in its own situational context within the music. The recordings here, coupled with instrument choice and tone, don't seem to really fit.

This is all still very soothing, and intermittently creepy music. It's definitely not bad at all, but not as structured properly as the albums following this.
