Album: Present Future Dreams
Artist: Eliza and the Organix
Label: Eliza Waldman
Non-Airable Tracks: None
A very interesting album filled with topics like cocaine, masturbating, remembering, wanting to forget and dreaming. I think vocalist Eliza Waldman has a very intriguing way of telling stories, as she doesn’t quite sing–she sing-talks (imagine reading a book while vocalizing a bit).
Her style works very well as I do think that the band’s whole style is representative of story-telling. The music follows a steady pace and speeds up in places where you would imagine action in between the sung-spoken lyrics.
Sounds Like: Fiona Apple, WHY?, Amanda Palmer
2-When I Call You: I like the electric guitar riffs that are accompanied with the trumpet in between parts of the lyrics that make it sound like part of a movie soundtrack of someone running nowhere.
3-Blameless: The longest track on the album but has a steady beat and fun mix of electro-boogie feels.
