Zubatto Syndicate: Zubatto Syndicate

Read "Zubatto Syndicate" reviewed by Marshall Taylor

Seattle's Zubatto Syndicate--the brainchild of longtime resident and guitarist/composer Andrew Boscardin--are anything but the typical footprint in the sand. Pervading the musical spectrum to touch on genres as disparate as classical and ska punk, the group's self-titled debut is an epitome of the band itself: a radical fusion of familiar musical ideas esoteric enough to intrigue ...
