TRN with Orgone & The O'My's- 5/20 Show Preview
Tomorrow night is going to be one for the books. We're incredibly excited to share the stage with two amazing bands at a really cool new venue (there's a butcher shop there for crying out loud) in Chicago. Here's the preview: ORGONE
We've known these dudes and gal since they first rolled through Chicago in 2010. It's hard to describe the amazing vibe that this band brings to every live performance. It's a mix of 70s disco, afrobeat, soul, and funk (the good kind). The new record they just released, Beyond The Sun, is their strongest effort yet. Orgone enlisted the help of writer/producer Mocky (of Jamie Lidell Jim fame) as well as some other excellent songwriters (Kelly Finnigan from Monophonics and Danny Chaimson, who wrote "Who Knows Who"). The record delivers the expected heavy grooves and killer production, but the songs and hooks really shine. Here's the title track.
Orgone puts on one of the best shows around, so expect a packed and sweaty dance floor all night long.
I caught the The O'My's opening for Lee Fields back in 2012, just a few nights before we released our 2nd album. They were a bit rough around the edges, but the unique lead vocals of Maceo Haymes captivated me. They've been blowing up in Chicago for the past year or so, headlining the Metro and playing some great fests in the area. These guys aren't to be missed. Check this video with Chance The Rapper (!).
