Tortuganónima - Imago

-New Album Review & Stream-

Chile's Tortuganónima return with a new full length album entitled "Imago."

With Tortuganónima's math rock reputation in mind, opening the record in 4:4 gives the listener a prolonged anticipation for what these Chilean madmen will attempt to pull off soon thereafter.

The first track "Ukio" is a cheerful illustration of musical exuberance. Moving forward with a strong emphasis on the snare drum, the drummer’s repeating odd-meter ostinato on woodblock gives the track a rich percussive texture and emotion. Having the introduction riff displace itself every bar in the background is a clever display of subtle musicality. Bei
