Gold Teeth

By • Apr 25th, 2009 only fired up last year (2008. Their MySpace site seems to be doing all the heavy lifting of getting them noticed. Hey it worked for me. Electronics, Afrobeat, great rythms and yummy guitars. Think Madness meets Blu… “Everybody” and “Confused Blue” are my faves. “Confused Blue” feels rythmically like a rework of  Bob Marley’s […]

100 Monkeys

The Ghost Orchid was formed in late 2006 as a collaborative side project with the intention of combining a collection of songs, ideas, and […]

Irya Gmeyner – My Angel

By • Mar 2nd, 2008

Irya Gmeyner’s song “My Angel” has been bouncing around on my MP3 player since around October last year. It’s a tricky one, I haven’t been able to make my mind up about it. There is no doubt that she is a talented songwriter, has a killer band and a really interesting voice (I keep thinking […]

No Quarter
