Opatov - Cuático
One of the newest releases from the cassette series of catalan label Famèlic Records is Opatov’s second EP, entitled “Cuático”, a Chilean word used to describe something rare, odd or boisterous. The catalan quartet plays a very interesting mixture of garage and pure psych-rock with a special feature: a trumpet. This live recorded cassette includes five new songs going from fast and playful surf rhythms to ambient soundscapes in which trumpet and guitar share the main roles. “Cuático” is a very good start for such a young team, we’re really hoping they are thinking about releasing an album soon.
