Gardenia - Gardenia y el Adversario del Tiempo (2017)
The third album from this Argentine band.
The band is a quartet with a lineup of sequensers, bass, guitars, synths, drums and Spanish vocals.
I have reviewed their two first album and an EP in # 1 of this blog. Two good albums indeed. All of them has been released through Bandcamp.
The band may have changed name too. They are now called Gardenia Y El Adversario Del Tiempo, the same as the name of this album. But I will stick to their first name, Gardenia.
Their music is still psychedelic rock. The music is not too spaced out. But it has some Pink Floyd references..... Pink Floyd from the late 1960s. Not David Gilmour's Pink Floyd.
The music is pretty weird and in the same vein as Violeto De Outono. Weird, but also melodic. The vocals is pretty thin and not so fleshy. But it is clearly male vocals.
The music is based on half-acoustic guitars, synths and electric guitars. And this is a fairly good album. After some more listenings to this half an hour long album, I am landing on a Good rating.
This band's music is pretty eclectic and will never become commercial. And we need bands like this.
