Orchyd Returns to Live From Studio 5!

By Dewglass

Orchyd brought in their full arsenal of musical delights with the clear haunting vocals of Shanna Carl, backed up by Tom Zempel on guitar, Charlie Milkey playing the SEVEN STRING bass and Geoff Carl on drums.
Count 'em , folks, seven strings.
Mostly Kansas transplants, Orchyd showed us we were not in Kansas anymore.  Charley Milkey amazed us with his 7 string base with an amazing mellow range.  Their genre: Abstract Post Downtempo Drone Rock Quartet, good a label as any, I just call 'em Orchyd.
I enjoy the fact that this band takes you on a sensory journey.  These are innovators worth following.  Who knows what musical meld they will weave together for our next encounter?  I am no musicologist, but I know what sounds good, and this sound is great!  For the more nitty gritty, on these guys, follow them on Facebook here:

There is a nice press piece in the City Pages here:
