Qüassi - Mareas (2020)


The debut album from this band from Argentina.

The band is a quartet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars and keyboards.

The band comes from Mendoza on the border to Chile and released this album as a name-your-price album on Bandcamp. A no brainer for the listener and the band.

The music is Canterbury scene prog.

That means a mix of fusion, jazz and prog.

There is a couple of catchy songs here inbetween some avant-garde jazz tunes.... but the majority of the music is still quirky, eclectic fusion.

The lack of vocals as a focal point is not a loss here, Quassi has put enough candy and interesting details here to make us forget vocals. 

The album is three quarters of an hour long and the overall quality is very good. Of the new talents, I rate Quassi very high.... close to the top.

Get this album.

3.5 points
