Zechs Marquise - Getting Paid (2011)

With three brothers in this band all sharing
the surname of Rodriguez-Lopez, you might
feel you have some idea of what this album
will sound like.

Although having the same impressive technical
chops evident in ATDI & The Mars Volta, this
is a much airier, lighter affair. As winter drags
on here in the UK, Zechs Marquise is the sound
of the summer - prog-funk anyone? The guitar
sound that we love from the magic hands of Omar
is here but played with a more delicate touch.

Horns, latin rhythms and a fluid composition style
help meld this mix of prog/psych, Parliament funk
madness into a streamlined album that is a lot of fun.

If you are after something to help throw off the shackles
of winter and you are not expecting to violently headbang
all the way through, get a copy.
