“The audience gets what the audience wants…. …the monster inside us…”

Those raspy booming vocals heave over hammering drums, nervy organs and rattling bass grooves as Empty Orchestra, a Flint-born collective of alt-country-reverent rockers, strikes an enticing yet dark vibe for their wicked, waving ballad musing on the “love/hate relationship between audience and performer…”

Just a few days ago, these Michiganders met the challenge of covering a song by one of their key influences (seminal 90′s indie-Americana-artists Uncle Tupelo) for a tribute compilation titled We’re All Criminals Here. More importantly, even, is that the twang-tweaking regal-rock traditionalists got to put their most recent album One More Time, Altogether Now, -out on vinyl, via Pentimento Music Co.

    Great eye-candy for an interesting song on a superior album. The real gem on the album is the sublime mind-medicine of “No Such Place”, I look forward to seeing that video.
