Here’s some cinematic, widescreen psychedelia courtesy of Federale, a seven-piece ensemble based in Portland, OR. Spearheaded by longtime Brian Jonestown Massacre bassist Collin Hegna, the band was conceived as an outlet to channel inspiration from 60’s & 70’s European soundtracks, particularly those from Italy made famous by the Spaghetti Western & Giallo genres.

They certainly hit the mark on ‘Trouble’, a song that swaggers along with dark intent, a smokey atmosphere akin to Calexico on a desert road trip with the Bad Seeds and Lee Hazlewood behind the steering wheel. Horns and strings enhance the mood before the  operatic sound of Maria Karlin sends things skyward.

‘Trouble’ comes the new album No Justice, due out on November 8th.
