Review: Organos – “The Limbs EP”
The Limbs EP
(Pox World Empire)
Maria Albani, bassist in the wonderful North Carolina band Schooner, is the brains behind Organos. This E.P. is a little box of wonder. Spoons, handclaps, guitar, snare drum, tubs, whoknowswhatelse are all being played in various places to make short (7 songs in just over 12 minutes) and tuneful songs. Some of these tracks trip along lightly, others are slower and more intense. They’re all atmospheric (in other words, they press their mood onto you), and they leave you wanting them to keep going. To that last extent, it’s a bit like listening to a sober and more serious minded (and more female) Robert Pollard; the hook catches you, keeps you, and then drops you and you feel a bit weightless for a moment. Nothing wrong with that!
