The Orange Goodness

Flying Under the Radar of Chaos

Review by Gary Hill

This EP has a sound that seems to often land near power-pop. This trio really creates some eclectic music, though that largely evades classification. It's fun from start to finish, but the closing track is down-right sublime.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) form in Music Street Journal: 2021  Volume 6. More information and purchase links can be found at:

Track by Track Review
Trust It's Time
Percussion starts this. The vocals and guitar join after a time. This is a high-energy, hook-laden musical journey that's fun. It leans toward a power-pop kind of angle.
Settle Up Settle Down

While this isn't a huge change from the opener, it's still unique. The extended instrumental movement with guitar solo is on fire.

Peace Of the Moment

This wastes no time, firing right in with a hook. This has some funky edges, along with some great pop rock sounds. This is a smoking hot tune that's a highlight of the set. It's gritty, tasty and fun.

Love Life Lies

I dig both the riffing and the hooks on this a lot. There is a real classic rock meets modern pop rock vibe to the track.

For the Love of It
Killer funk drives this cut. It's quirky. In fact, it's so quirky that it even makes me think of Robert Fripp to some degree. This is another highlight. It's so unique. It manages to be catchy despite the strange nature of the tune.
