Madre Atomica biography
MADRE ATOMICA was an Argentinian band based in Buenos Aires formed in 1973. The group played jazz rock with vocals and throughout line-up changes enjoyed some reputation until 1975 when they disbanded for the first time.

The group reactivated itself in 1985 for a short while when they released their only self-titled album, which can be recommended to fans of lighter 80's fusion in the vein of Pat METHENY for example.

Review by Heart of the Matter

5 stars OK, it's not easy to present an Argentinean band to a general public, even more when the band is an obscure one like this.

The album opens with what initially seems like a pleasant indulgence in Jazz Fussion. Good rhythm & melody, sophisticated harmony, but nothing else. The main sonic references here can be the Pat Metheny Group of that era, or, more accurately, the instrumental component of the Spinetta Jade band. But the point is that that it's only the beginning of a journey delving deeper into a series of austere miniatures that turn more and more idiosyncratic, personal and beautiful with each track. There are ethnic (track 4 A Tierra H˙meda), soundscaping (track 6 Para Dino), and even arty (track 8 Julia En Primavera) moments here, but the journey itself remains the main thing to appreciate and embrace.

Immersive and warm, and even so, distant and moody. In one word? Allow me two: unique and precious.

Thanks to historian9 for the artist addition.
