Papadosio
T.E.T.I.O.S.

Rootwire

Double albums are always an ambitious move. While most bands of their type would have focused on recording efficient studio reproductions of their live output, Papadosio have created a truly
cohesive two-disc set that covers all sorts of ground from jazz and funk to atmospheric psychedelia and bass-driven EDM. “Cue” shuffles between SoCal-style alternative rock and extended Spanish guitar jams, while “The Bionic Man Meets His Past…” carefully builds toward an explosive and beautiful crescendo. It’s a rare achievement for a jamtronica act—STS9’s Artifact comes to mind—but T.E.T.I.O.S. succeeds as a whole, with grand themes of love, universal consciousness and a better tomorrow permeating through each of the album’s 20 tracks.
