A fresh take on a classic sound,
This review is from: Killion Floor (Audio CD)
Man, these kids just tear it up. I don't know much about Orgone, but I do know that if they are anything like their music, they are raw, funky, behind-the-beat, and downright filthy (slang for 'good' folks).
Great bands like this hide in the shadows, waiting to be discovered, and when they are, they just shine that much brighter.
For those familiar with the Dap Kings, the band Sharon Jones and Amy Winehouse use, Orgone will sound familiar, but more raw, more alive, more brassy. If you have this on your iPod, watch out, your head will be bopping back and forth.
Favorite cuts include Sophisticated Honky, Duck & Cover, I Get Lifted, Dialed Up, Said & Done.
Pick this up and be taken back to a time when it was all about the music, and bands recorded all their parts live - as a band - together. This tightness is what's missing today.
Orgone today, hopefully not Orgone tomorrow, or ever! Killing me softly with those beats! Bring the funk!

I do know these dudes (and Fanny) personally, and they are the real deal.

If you get a chance to see them live - do whatever you have to do to get there - they just kill - I saw them at the Portland Blues festival, and they just tore the place down.
