Picture the Umberto fan, putting the needle to wax with Helpless Spectator, and hearing this. If they were a true fan, on board with his past fascination with deep mood pieces as well as his more immediate Italo-disco mediations, they’d keep it spinning. Helpless Spectator conjures not the club but the world of movie soundtracks and ambient textures — think of the grit of Ennio Morricone and John Carpenter, paired with the more delicate sensitivities of Max Richter and Harold Budd.
