RICARDA COMETA: Review – The Quietus

“A revelation outta thin air, courtesy of this dazzlingly trigonometrical spritz of minimal rock clang from Buenos Aires. […] Ricarda Cometa 2 is wholly instrumental, but its arrangements are lyrical and florid. Heuman can play like a proto-free jazzer or Valerie Scroggins from ESG, frequently in the same movement; Espinal shreds the demarcation between rhythm and melody with a playing style that compares to Captain Beefheart, Bill Orcutt, Arto Lindsay and, especially, US Maple’s Mark Shippy.” – The Quietus

RICARDA COMETA: Ricarda Cometa 2 – A Closer Listen

“…eminently corporeal, powered by the clean spurts of Espinal’s guitar and amplified by Heuman’s restrained-yet-punchy drumming. […] RICARDA COMETA’s music demands to be clearly followed, every crease and fold in the new flesh a motive of aesthetic attention. Your body should dance in ways it never has, each new position a new limb with which to appreciate the guitar’s intricate noodling and the drums’ marking of unconventional pulses, a music meant not for your mind to get lost in but for your body to be sharpened by. […] At almost 24 minutes, Ricarda Cometa 2 is even shorter than its predecessor, but it is […] more intricate, more intense, more punishing and powerful…” – A Closer Listen

RICARDA COMETA Combines Latin, African and Asian Influences With Noise, Math Rock on ‘Ricarda Cometa 2’ (album stream) – PopMatters

“The 11-song collection takes listeners on a wild, noisy ride that never loses its focus on Latin-inspired rhythms but which ultimately sends them through the musical grinder a few dozen times along the way. If listeners found the herky-jerky twists and turns of math rock or Mr. Bungle challenging, RICARDA COMETA take these musical complexities to new heights here. […] The most remarkable feat is how often we’re taken to the logical extremes of noise and rhythm, then brought back to the center, all while ingesting therapeutic doses of no-wave, African, Latin, and Asian ritual music in these grooves.” – PopMatters
