ORGONE/The Herd 

When: Wed., Aug. 26, 8:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $12 ADV, $14 DOS
Orgone, a term described by Austrian psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich as “the creative force in nature,” happens to also be one of the most prestigious names in the world of session bands and balls-out funk groovin’. This year’s Beyond the Sun ups the soul just so, calling back to the atmospherics of 70s funk LPs. “Take You Higher,” for instance, cooks up a stripped-down bassline while the band builds a layered sense of seduction. We’d like to point out as well that “Captain’s Log,” a tune found on the band’s 2001 self-titled LP, showcases the band’s stuff admirably. There’s the super chilled-out funk, and then there’s the upbeat, borderline psychedelia. With all that at hand, the band’s live shows are tremendously energetic events. While there’s always the tendency for the musicians to go off-roading into open improv, they maintain supremely tight grooves that hone the attention of the crowd at all times. (Eric Sandy)
