Organos on Sirius XMU last night

Posted by on Thu, Feb 4, 2010 at 3:46 PM

After playing a few games of basketball in Raleigh last night, I climbed in the car, turned on the radio and headed to a meeting across town. Sirius XMU, billed as being "like hearing college radio but never having to go to class," was spinning Hot Chip's "One Life Stand," a college station standard of late. But when the DJ followed with "Lazy Lessons," a track from the not-yet-released The Limbs EP by Chapel Hill's Organos, I wondered if I'd actually switched the dial to WKNC 88.1 FM. After all, bandleader Maria Albani did all the press and radio mailing for her solo project's new EP, and unlike Hot Chip or the next band, The National, an act like Organos and a label like Pox World Empire don't have sizable PR budgets to pursue national DJs.

But it was indeed Sirius XMU, and, indeed, the non-traditional charms of the songwriting on The Limbs EP, described here, seem to be sticking. Pox officially releases the EP Tuesday, Feb. 23, though you can pick it up at the band's CD release party tomorrow night at The Pinhook. To hear the song, and read the story behind the set, see this week's newspaper.
