- 10 juin 2020
Enter a sonic world of mysticism filled with ancient gods and tribal soundscapes from outer space, with the debut album from French psychedelic/acid rockers ORGÖNE today! ‘MOS/FET’ comes out this June 12th on digital, and on June 19th on CD and vinyl through Heavy Psych Sounds.
ORGÖNE have found the perfect way to present their unique, psychedelic, mystic, spacey and dreamy inner landscape, filled with ancient gods from other planets and pan-africanism.
« From start to finish, this presentation is a cohesively textural wonderland capable of leaving each listener thoroughly awestruck. It ripples with illuminating waves of animated space rock, world music, and what feels like semi-improvised noise manipulations. » describes Riff Relevant website.

Listening to ‘MOS/FET’ is like opening an old sci-fi book that mixes 70s pop culture, ancient Egypt, pan-Africanism and spatial explorations.

The double LP is comprised of four suites of 20 minutes each, delivering a complete immersion from which you won’t escape unscathed. ‘MOS.FET’ was recorded at Blue Anvil Sound by Justin Nicquevert, mixed by Tom Penaguin and mastered by Nicolas Moreau & Pierre Le Gac at Le Garage Hermétique.

Out June 19th on Heavy Psych Sounds – Preorder
2015 saw the meeting of Nick Le Cave (bass) and Marlen Stahl (guitar), veterans of numerous Indie-Rock, Free Rock and Rock In Opposition/Avant-Garde french bands. Together with Mat La Rossa on drums, they decided to create a « back to basics » rock band, in their hometown of Rennes (Brittany). This led to the birth of ORGÖNE in 2016, with the arrival of the wild French-Polish Olga Rostropovitch on lead voice. They began to experiment and to explore many territories, mixing stoogian rock, noise-rock, krautrock « motorik » tracks, long impros… Those experiments led to a specific sound tainted more and more with psychedelic textures, space rock and noise elements, with progish hints.
Then in 2018, the departure of Mat La Rossa, who disagreed with the idea of long, epic tracks led to a radical but natural change : with the arrival of Allan Barbarian on drums and Tom Angelo on keyboards (both are also playing with the stoner band Djiin, who shared the stage with Orgöne), the band went almost back to zero and was then able to focus on long « Suites », with movements, in a prog-rock way, allowing the band to mix elements of tribal, arabic sounds, motorik rythms, organic space rock wall of sound and much more, in a very specific way. « MOS/FET », their first double album, reflects all those experiments, in 80 epic minutes.
