2 stars Another discovery at This one is actually not a real band, but a project of a gifted Argentinean avant-garde composer from Buenos-Aires, Abel Gilbert. The result of the second gathering together has received the most logical name: "II", and is a piece of absolutely genius and original work, speaking both of composing and performing.

Just like in the first Factor Burzaco album, Carolina Restuccia sings the stars off the heaven. Her unprecedentedly extravagant vocals and voice arrangements are the trade mark of the project. Sometimes her vocals remind me of the legendary avant-garde vocalist Dagmar Krause, when she was singing together with Henry Cow in the fabulous "In Praise of Learning" back in the seventies, or with Fred Frith and Chris Cutler in Art Bears. Sometimes, she sings like Bjork can sing, when she is at her weirdest. Pol Gonzales is another wonderful vocalist on board of the project, also with a huge vocal range, who can also sing really weird, I assure you. Speaking of range, I should mention the compositions themselves, ranging from experimental jazz to hard rock, all of that in one piece.

The band's music can be compared to Thinking Plague. However, it is much less hectic, a little less electric and more spacious, or if you like, less industrial. I would even dare to declare, that one can even relax and enjoy while listening to Factor Burzaco , which I personally could never achieve listening to Thinking Plague.

Another references could be their brother projects at, Yugen and Rational Diet. If you didn't discover those yet, there is a great possibility to do that now. Check Yugen's "Iridule" and Rational Diet's "On Phenomena and Existence", two alternative rock masterpieces from 2010.
