If you've been to Terrapin Station, you know they book some of the best feel-good musicians and bands around. It's music that's good for your heart, your soul and your dancing feet. Keeping with this trend, they've got Organic Flood (opening for Moo-got 2) bringing their funk/hip hop/psychedelic vibe to the stage next Friday.
Organic Flood is Seth Miner on guitar, Hayes Burris on bass, Ben Bodine on drums and Grace "Grace Tea" Totherow and the Chad "Mad Chadder" Crowhurst sharing mic duties. Their music is eclectic, their energy palpable.
Organic Flood's November 2005 release, The Source, includes reggae beats, vocal raps and a random assortment of sounds like car horns and bike bells. Lyrics are at times minimal: "witchdoctor voodoo witchdoctor guru shaman heal medicine man medicine woman" and at times strange and complex and seemingly chosen for the sounds created rather than the meaning behind the words themselves: "Have you heard the call of the bird tribe? A rosemary hum, holy power of word, drum, sound, shape water makes in response to the voice of the tongue in the valley of the shadow of doubt, loaded with emotion. We gotta bounce, ya'll, gotta leap, lift out, let go of these bodies, seek helical spout without ego, or needin' to go anywhere but in, spiraling kaleidoscope within, spin!"
Together just over a year and a half (the bio on their Web site states the band as it is now was born New Year's Day 2005), the five people who make up Organic Flood play together as though they've known one another all their lives. They seem to be having a ball. Get in on the fun.
Sept. 29, 9:30 p.m., with Moo-got 2, $5, Terrapin Station, 1519 W. Main St., 342-1776. Check out the review of The Source on page 88.
