4 stars A very impressive AvantGarde/RIO band from Santiago, Chile, Abrete Gandul's 2011 album Enjambre Sismico sounds as much as a KING CRIMSON (plus flute and more prominent synthesizers) adventure as it does the rest of the AltrOck Productions cast--which it does. "Marejeda" is more ambient New Age, "Consecuencia Natural" and "...y ahora Qué" are both very jazzy--though of very different styles, "Convergencia Caótica" is very spacey/psychedelic (and RPI sounding), and my favorite, "Intangible"(7:55) (10/10) is full of heavy, powerful chord sequences and treated guitars and synths, but the rest could easily pass for King Crimson inventions of the past twenty years.

A solid four star effort of well-composed and well-performed music from some very talented musicians. Definitely a band to keep following.
