Orgone is one of the most exciting bands in the new generation of funk
bands; led by the powerhouse vocals of Adryon de Le n, Orgone recalls
such legendary groups as Rufus and Sly & The Family Stone at their
best. Their new album Reasons illuminates a band hitting its stride,
capturing the raw power and refined sensibilities that defines Orgone.
From the a cappella opening of "All Good Things" to the dance floor filler
"Easy Love," Reasons packs a punch. Vocal harmonies channeling late
70s Fleetwood Mac to synth lines evoking Bernie Worrell's involvement
in the Talking Heads, Reasons brings in a new set of influences on
Orgone's 10th studio album while maintaining their classic analog sound.
De Le n is front and center on Reasons, and she does not disappoint
evoking the deep soulfulness of Chaka Khan and the bedroom sweetness
of Minnie Ripperton. Her versatile vocal performance firmly places her in
the top echelon of soul singers today.
Reasons is another solid step in a long and storied career. Orgone's
accolades are too long to list in entirety. The well-traveled band has
released albums on Ubiquity, Shanachie, and Colemine Records and
served as the studio band on hits like Alicia Key's "Teenage Love Affair"
and Cee Lo Green's Grammy-winning "Fool For You."
