PatanSGTU 400

"Vocalist and guitarist Ana Patan has an excellent new album out titled 'Spice, Gold and Tales Untold.'

It’s a live analog recording that captures deep groove interplay from a very serious band. It features stellar bass work from Jonas Hellborg, who contributes to most tracks, as well as Devin Townsend and Jonathan Herrera. Drums are by The Flower Kings’ Zoltan Csörsz.

Of course, all of these musicians are known for their work across the jazz-rock and art-rock spectrums, but on Patan’s album, they’re here exclusively in service to the songs. Her pieces feature intelligent lyrics focused on the current, unfolding human condition, both micro and macro.

Patan’s vocals are deep, soulful and kinetically intertwine with the songs’ very creative arrangements.

It’s superb stuff."
