Giganto: Latigo Canta

Latigo Canta is the new album from Madrid based instrumental group Giganto, on indie label BCore Disc. Whenever we review an instrumental rock record, it's relevant to discuss the obscurity that such releases are consigned to. While instrumental releases flourish in electronic music, rock releases suffer in anonymity. There is a reason for this. Rock, as a purely instrumental exercise, comes off sounding unfinished and this album shares that fate. While heavy and driving, it lacks any compelling melodic features to hold on to and tie it together as a cohesive work. Give it a listen and see how you feel about it.
