Fool's Gambit - Syzygy (2021)

The debut album from this Swedish band.

The band is a trio with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars and vocals.

This band is from the far north of Sweden and they are a new name to me. This album is out on Bandcamp too. 

The music is pretty untraditional.

Take a big chunk of Beck and Frank Zappa. Add a lot of jazz and eclectic prog. Add some vaudeville rock too. Gong should be added too.

This is where you find this seventy minutes long album.

The vocals are good and the band does their best on some quirky, weird songs.

The quality is somewhere between decent and good. The music is a bit on the simple side, although it is quirky enough to get the attention from the prog rock world.

Check out this album if quirky prog/jazz is your thing.
