Platurno — Núcleos
(Mylodon MyloCD043, 2006, CD)

Núcleos Cover art

Platurno is a young Chilean progressive rock trio of guitars, keyboards, and drums. Núcleos is their 2006 debut release of 11 mostly instrumental songs. Each song is different, but has a similar structure and format. One song may open with abstract electronics, another with an ambient bass riff, or a slow melody, but they all segue into compositions heavily influenced by Robert Fripp and King Crimson. But don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of variety on this disc. The music is quite good, but there is a lot of room for Platurno to grow and mature. They have done their homework well and if you view some of their YouTube videos, you will see that they are having a lot of fun. I truly expect to see much more from Platurno in the future. But for now, Núcleos is an excellent respite from the dirge of neo-prog and Porcupine Tree clones out there today.
