Mugga may be the strangest export from Spain since Pablo Picasso. His 'cubism' style was an avant garde art movement, and avant garde, even eclectic, could describe Mugga's take on music.
Mugga's musical definition is best described as both an amalgam and divergence of tastes of its individual members. Heavy rock, prog rock, Latin rhythms and atonal metaphors, guitar solos and quirky synths, and a basic desire to jam, both in session and live, only begin to describe what' within this five song EP. yet, fundamentally, the music is as much accessible as it is deliberately curious and quirky. You would think the addition of vocals would upset this crazy cart, but not so. Heras becomes another piece of the puzzle, plain, then sublime, and then aggressive.
At first I had my doubts about Mugga. Yeah, okay, a bunch dudes with various and different tastes in music get together, get thinking, and get jamming. Been there, done that. Pull Mugga off my CD shelf repeatedly, not so much. But these guys are creative, entertaining and, mostly, a whole lot of fun. Recommended.
