[KITCHEN-SINK JAMS] Portland quartet Ojos Feos is an ambitious project, mixing everything from African rhythms to Latin balladry, flamenco, Delta blues, Cuban street music, reggae and classic rock into a mostly mellow, sometimes exhilarating, often confusing sound. The group’s five-song EP, Andale!, highlights each member’s skills, from intricate percussion work to wailing guitar laments, blaring harmonica and driving bass. Trouble is, the styles often overlap, creating a strange cacophony of conflicting sounds—like, say, a raging harmonica solo over a chill reggae beat driven by off-key harmonization. There are amazing ideas here, and Andale! shows considerable promise, but until the band overcomes an identity crisis, it remains to be seen how accessible all that ambition is.
