The Guru – Go Easy

 

 

The Guru is not only one of my favorites, but a favorite of WQAQ.  Hearing their album “Go Easy” completely reassured my love for their music. In some of their songs, such as their first track, “Go Easy” the incorporation of saxophone and other various instruments make it extremely catchy. Their second track, “Indian Day” is another one of my favorites. There’s no way anyone could listen to this song without wanting to dance. If you haven’t been convinced to listen to this album yet, they have a song called “Guacamole.” Who doesn’t like Guacamole?

If you ever want to brighten your day I highly suggest putting on this album.

Organik Time Machine – Until The Morning Sun

Organik Time Machine is a four-piece band, consisting of Cory Harrell, Jessie Ostreicher, Veronica DeWitt and Matt Grub, who on their website claim to “defy genres.” They put out the album Until The Morning Sun, and when I tell you their music is repetitive, I absolutely mean it. This album made me feel like I was waiting in line at Disney World for Space Mountain or just waiting in line for anything in general. It’s the type of music that’s so repetitive you end up tuning it out without even realizing you’re doing so. I wish I had an Organik Time Machine (or really any sort of time machine for that matter) to travel back a week ago and tell myself to never listen to this album.

In all honesty, it wasn’t the worst thing I’ve listened to, but it was definitely up there. If I had to choose out of all the songs “Get Some” was probably one of their better ones on the album; being one of the least repetitive and a little more interesting when they incorporated different instruments. Although it seems like one of the more tolerable songs a little over a minute and a half into it you start to hear these dreadful vocals that are very auto-tuned and whiny. Read More →
