mp3: “Fun Funeral” by Oryx and Crake
Oryx and Crake is a 9-person band from Atlanta, GA whose lyrical beauty and musical complexity contains “hints of Sparklehorse, Portishead, Wilco, and even The Mamas and The Papas” (The Moon and Pluto), but with a sound that is their own. Normally a 9-piece band has the potential of sounding chaotic, but not this band. They’ve got a good balance going on. You should try to make it out to The Earl to catch them at their CD Release Show. Somebody will be there representing TBI for sure.
