With temperatures rising and the sun shining on a semi-regular basis, it definitely appears to be time to pack away winter-y synths and bust out the loud guitar jams again. Enter Brooklyn’s Flower Orgy, who sent us a few demos from their upcoming, Alex Bleeker-produced EP. Unlike the folkier sounds of the band’s recent Curatorial Club release, here Flower Orgy guide listeners on a garage rock journey chock full of everything that will always be pure and good about this kind of music. On “Mama Earth” the band bring the noise with a flurry of crunchy chug-chugga guitar chords and a come-hither riff, compelling imaginary basement audiences to nod in rhythm and sing-along, “We don’t know anything at all!” Despite this lyrical display of humility, this demo proves Flower Orgy clearly know what they’re doing. Their finished EP will no doubt make for regular summer listening.
