Owen's TOP TRACK
Something For Your M.I.N.D.
This lead single off Superorganism's recent debut album is a fascinating piece of psychedelia. With the resources available to musicians in the 21st century, it's surprising that more music like this doesn't emerge. The blend of electronic and traditional instrumentation, along with various samples and sound effects, is exactly the kind of eclectic mixture that would logically appear, given an unlimited creative canvas, and access to the internet. Even the members of this band have a diverse collection of backgrounds, with members from New Zealand, England, Korea, and Australia, and lead vocals from Orono Noguchi, a Japanese teenager living in Maine. Though the exact sounds are not without precedence, the particular qualities of this group likely represent a new wave of things to come in the next decade or so.
