[SPAGHETTI NORTHWESTERN] ’Tis the season to ape Sergio Leone, apparently. Federale’s newly released third album, The Blood Flowed Like Wine, is an obvious companion piece to Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, and not just because it contains a song about a vengeful escaped slave who happens to be named Django. Both the film and the record wish to evoke the atmosphere of the famed Italian director’s blood-’n’-dust epics. At least Tarantino mashes up things with other influences, like modern music and touches of ’70s blaxploitation—in Federale’s case, it’s content to craft a perfect mimic of Ennio Morricone, the composer who scored many of Leone’s movies. Unoriginal as it might be, the mostly instrumental band’s copy is a pristine one, down to the twanged-out guitars, mariachi horns and wordless, operatic vocals. Ripping off a master like Morricone ain’t easy, but Federale makes it look like it is, and that’s no small accomplishment.
