Argentinian-based jazz trio Barquitos Edward have come through with a brand new album titled Lo que el destino te depare. This is the first time I have come across their music, and with gorgeous guitar-driven melodies and stunning compositions, this album is one to remember.
The album starts off with the smooth and soothing intro “Anclados,” which is driven by gorgeous guitar melodies, as most of the tracks on this album, and upright bass and drumming complimenting the incredible melody. This continues on the 10 minute thriller “Groar,” with unsettling guitars and strings bringing a subtle but poignant energy. The emotive tone on “El Daddy” is just incredible, and the meandering synths and guitar leads on the 14 minute “Siglo XXI” is nothing short of stunning. The album closes with the beautiful “Go forward,” a synth-heavy, dreamy track that captures the introspection and beauty of the record as a whole. It plays out as a meandering, off-kilter album that just travels through a crazy, woozy soundscape. There are few albums that have been able to capture such intensity and beauty as Lo que el destino te depare. Barquitos Edward have really come through with a fascinating new album and I can’t wait to hear more from the talented trio.
