Squintaloo – Über Bord!



Squintaloo is a German experimental progressive rock quartet, and they released their latest album, Über Bord!, in June 2017. Their style is eclectic and modern, drawing many comparisons to even some more out-there math rock and prog rock outfits. While very rooted into harmonic cohesion with a rather simplistic melodic approach, most of the eccentricity comes from the structures, the odd rhythms, and the layers of effects that affect the guitar sounds. That is not to say that those two aspects are not well done or that playing them doesn’t require a high degree of musicianship from the players’ part, but only that they are not the focus of experimentation, here. Well, at least not the main one. So, this is one of the more accessible and ear-friendly records from this musical region, but continues to deliver some very enjoyable moments upon multiple listens.
