iTunes Review

Maserati continues to morph and shed, with each new layer revealing glossy textures sleek with electronic sparkle, plus guitar and synth tones that evoke decades gone by (the '70s on occasion, the '80s more frequently) and a sort of reborn newness. After the death of drummer Jerry Fuchs in 2009, the band endured with unwavering motorik grace. New drummer Mike Albanese fills Fuchs' rather large shoes admirably. Here there are sprawling numbers that wind up and down with precision and stealth, plus shorter numbers that hit fast and hard, like the stomping, old-school "Earth Like" (which may elicit some nostalgia for Maserati's more aggressive days). Getting lost in the 10-minute-plus "Abracadabracab" is like making your way through a maze: it's a slightly disorienting but fun adventure that rewards with small thrills at every turn, especially in the drawn-out coda. Psychedelic atmospherics and funky bass lines churn out booty-shaking songs that spiral and swirl, all of which make Maserati VII a solid follow-up to 2010's Pyramid of the Sun.

What a ride.

Abracadabracab is where it's at.

Maserati's best work yet...

Over the five years I have been a fan of this group, one thing is for certain: they keep getting better. While they may not make intentionally artistic instrumental rock like Explosions in the Sky and Mono, their deft ability to carry a fast paced tune while sustaining the energy to do so is becoming more polished and precise. The increased use of electronics and fancy guitar effects hasn't diminished the overall product, but instead, it has given them some extra depth and wiggle room as they continue with their career and adjust their sound so they won't become rigid and boring. They no longer ride the coat tails of other established instrumental rock outfits, and hopefully they will receive more recognition as they continue with their careers.

Yet another of the Athens, Georgia experimentalists, Maserati picked up where bands like Tortoise, Macha, and Labradford left off with complex, warmly textured instrumental music straying from the confines of rock to explore the ambient, jazz, and even modern classical traditions. The four-piece of Coley Dennis (guitar), Steve Scarborough (bass), Phil Horan (drums), and Matt Cherry (guitar) began playing together in early 2001. After several months, they recorded and self-released 37:29:24, a moody...
