Factor Burzaco: Factor Burzaco

This is the debut CD for this band from Argentina. The band members are Marco Bailo (guitar), Feerico Arbia (bass), Nicolas D'Almonte (drums), Esetban Saldano (piano), Carolina Restuccia (vocals) and all compositions by Abel Gilbert. There are also guest musicians that add; flute, oboe, sax, violin and cello. The CD is about 50 minutes long with eleven tracks ranging from thirty seconds to six minutes long. The band's music could be classified as RIO or Avant- garde with a jazzy feel.

The vocals are first thing that caught my attention, Carolina has a very powerful soprano voice that can be delicate when needed. All the vocals are in Spanish and if you do not understand the language like myself don't let this bother you. I found the vocals to very enjoyable. Some of the songs create a tension between the music and the vocals, which is later resolved in the song producing a nice dynamic. The rest of the band creates music that is angular but also has a groove to it. There is a lot of interplay between guitar, piano and bass while drums are a little more subdued. I think of the music like Deus ex Machina light. In a couple of songs they playa jazzy groove similar in style to a band like Lost Tribe. The guest musicians are used through the whole CD. At times they're added parts give the music a little darker feel that reminds me a bit of Univers Zero but never overpower the songs.

This is a very promising debut CD By the band, and I am looking forward to their sophomore release. I could see this band being on the Cuneiform label someday and if you enjoy the music on that label this CD might interest you. I would recommend Factor Burzaco to fans of bands like Thinking Plague and Art bears plus the groups mentioned above.
