"‘Orange’ album makes Oklahoma proud"

This exciting new album is another example of the incredibly good music coming from Norman’s scene. Ben Lindesmith (vocals/guitar/synthesizer) is highly adept at bringing artists together and focusing their creativity.

His band is Todd P. Loftin (guitar/mandolin), John Thomas (bass/vocals), Scott Young (drums) and Jonny White (keys/synthesizer).

Besides that talent, for this disc he assembled another half-dozen musicians on guitar, violin, saxophone and trumpet.

The result is 10 tracks of recorded bliss. Sophisticated introspection collides with unvarnished musical passion in an amalgam of electronica, voice and primal percussion. A gentle sensibility on several songs recalls early Jefferson Airplane.

Annatova Neches’ haunting vocals in “Metapickens” float through a Rega rhythm meets Weather Report rhapsody.

The lyrical poetry of “Oh Blue” is gilded by a brass refrain that carries the vocals to a higher plane. “Leaving Norman” has a bittersweet irony that’s undoubtedly humorous for some listeners and a tear-jerker for others.

Many of this town’s talented young people leave for big cities, but the conventional wisdom is that, eventually, they always return home. “That Girl” is homage to a woman who drives the author crazy.

The simplicity of the song is in the best Woody Guthrie tradition. And, like the bard from Okemah, “Orange” is an album Oklahoma can be proud of.

Bio

"Zebre is a professional strength paste intended for the treatment and prevention of dental caries. Zebre is ideal for the management of high-risk patients such as those with rampant, early, existing or recurrent coronal or root caries. Since it is used in place of regular paste, it is an easy treatment regime for patients to comply with. Zebre is an air-tight container for the distribution or storage of goods, composed of thin metal, and requiring cutting or tearing of the metal as the means of opening. Zebre is produced by a causative agent of barely detectable intensity, and the magnitude of the effect is substantially independent of the intensity of the cause. Zebre is a very sensitive region in both males and females. Licking, kissing or caressing in this area is sexually arousing to many people. Zebre is an organization founded in 1960 by guru Shri Hank Joe Maharaj. During the 1970s, Zebre gained prominence in the West under the leadership of his fourteenth son, Guru Maharaj Bob Joe. Zebre is widely seen as a new religious movement, a cult, a charismatic religious sect or an alternative religion." - Chase Spivey/Wikipedia
