I first heard of the organ last December in an issue of Rocksound. Their first release, 'memorize the city', was described as a little known gem of 2005 and that this band would surely flourish in 2006. I decided to download the song, see if they lived up to this hype. From the very first listen, you can tell the organ have something new to offer the music industry. Their sound is like a sharper, more defined look on 80's rock, the end result being a mix between the cure and the yeah yeah yeah's. 'Memorize the city' has some amazing lyrics, and a great sound to match. My other favourite song is 'Brother', and although the songs have a familiar pang to them, they all differ enough to keep you interested. It's worth a listen, and I have a feeling these guys will be big in 2006.

I picked this album up on a whim in the band's home town Vancouver last April. I'd read about them in rhapsodical articles in the local press and thought the Joy Division played by girls idea was intriguing. Upon listening to it in the record shop, I was instantly taken with the songs ultra-simple but all-enveloping 80's style arrangements and, moreover, Katie Sketch's maudlin, otherwordly vocals. Indeed, though the taut, angular, paranoid brilliance of her band make it unfair to sideline them, it really is Sketch who raises the band above mere imitation. If the album ever gets an official release over here (godammit, what's the hold up?), no doubt her combination of heart-on-sleeve melancholy and ingenious turn of phrase will inspire the same sort of cultish behaviour in her fans as those of Morrisey and Kirsten Hirsch, her most obvious forebears.
In fact, 'cult' pretty much sums up the whole of this album. Like with all great indie records, it's not 'perfect', and yet, somehow, there's nothing about it that could possibly be altered. It's a collection of songs to obsess over and listen to far too much, full of startling lyrics and subtly danceable music played by a band at their most intuitive and imaginative (in this respect they share just as much with Sleater-Kinney as they do with The Smiths or The Cure). Those who discover this album will cherish it.
It's been a slow burner with me, played sporadically over the last year without ever becoming a firm favourite, but now, all of a sudden, it makes perfect sense. The Organ are unshakably retro, but are too vital and sincere to be merely pastiche. Whatever the era, they're a great band, and this album, I suspect, is a cult classic in the making.

This is a great debut album for fans of 80's new wave and post-punk, yet also has enough of a modern feel to entice fans of current alternative music. Imagine a hybrid of the cure, the smiths, joy division and blondie and you'll get get a good idea of the sound. I thoroughly recommend this album, and after catching them live last night I also recommend any seeing them on their current UK Tour, they are even better live. Standout tracks include the amazing "Brother" (check out that intro), "Steven Smith", "Sinking Hearts", "A Sudden Death" and "There is nothing I can do". A classic.

Thanks very much for David Robertson for recommending this to me (please get in touch if you have any more recommendations as good as this!). This passed me by completely last year and would certainly have made it on to the best of 2006 list had I heard it - that's now been rectified!

This is such a great piece of work. The first time I put it on I thought "Blondie"! Thats's what it sounds like at first listen - Blondie when they were fresh circa "Plastic Letters". But there is more to it than that. yes the vocals are stunningly Debbie Harry-like but there are some great basslines on this album and the keyboards, though simple, perfectly complement the rest of the band.

Such a shame they decided to call it a day late last year. If this is anything to go by they really could have made it big. There aren't any standout tracks but there aren't any duff ones either. This is consistently superb rock music from start to finish from a now sadly defunct group.

Great buy, great recommendation!! (9/10)

I stumbled across this band accidentally while browsing on the net and just so happen to be one of the best albums I have bought this year. Imagine if I had not pressed that mouse at one point I could have gone through the whole year and beyond never hearing about this band (horrible thought). Why this band is not played much on the radio or on the music channels is beyond me.

Yes there are similarities with bands like The Smiths and a melodic Joy Division (morose, dark and depressing) but at the same time The Organ do have their own sound and style, which to be honest is unique when comparing them to all the other alternative bands that have exponentially emerged over the past few years.

Cannot pick out a bad song, the whole album consistently plays with well crafted top songs right to the end track Memorize the City (my personal favorite). Lyrics like `The Smiths' are poetic and with meaning and you can tell time and effort has been put into this album. Only downside is the album is so short! 30 odd minutes and this makes you feel left a bit short, if only they could have created a couple of more tracks for the album.

I did manage to see them in Manchester a couple of weeks ago and they gave a good performance although there was absolutely no interaction with the crowd.

An addictive album you will play over and over. 9/10
