Running this here website can throw up some complete surprises with bands you might have easily overlooked. France’s Orgöne are a prize example of this. Difficult to completely pigeon hole, their debut album, Mos/Fet , consists of 4 ‘movements’ of what can only be described as a melting pot of psych, prog, stoner and even world music that will be released via Heavy Psych Sounds on 19th June.
And today, we’re elated to be premiering their first video, the band comments…
‘The first video-clip from Orgöne shows the band playing their songs Mothership Egypt and Rhyme Of The Ancient Astronaut, from their Anubis Rising Suite. This total DIY video, shot one week before the quarantine, is a way for the band to present (with a touch of humour and even irony) their psychedelic, mystic, spacy and dreamy inner landscape, fulfilled with ancient gods from other planets and pan-africanism.’
Now click play below and pre-orders for their new album Mos/Fet are available on CD, various vinyl pressings and digital download from the Heavy Psych Sounds webstore.
More On Orgöne & ‘Mos/Fet’
Mos/Fet is the first studio album by the French band Orgöne. Fully self-produced, this first opus is a double album composed of four twenty-minutes tracks, delivering a complete immersion from which you won’t escape unscathed. With Mos/Fet, Orgöne reveals a SF mythology mixing 70s pop culture, ancient Egypt, pan-Africanism, spatial and paranormal exploration against the backdrop of Cold War and USSR.
This first album is an interdimensional music journey in which the guide would have left you alone in a dead end world. Sometimes immersed in the thickness of a burning and hostile desert, sometimes in the depths of space, floating in weightlessness or crossing the Milky Way faster than light, atmospheres succeed one after another and tell you incredible, uchronial, dystopian, exhilarating and bewitching stories.
