I was first caught by this track solely based on the name of the band, Oryx and Crake; it just happens to be one of my favorite Atwood novels. Musically, the band’s quite interesting. There are elements that remind me of that mid-period Of Montreal, yet there’s this added frivolity that sort of reminds me of Tilly and the Wall (it also closes in a Bowie/Bolan nod). Of course, all of these are just the things I hear in the songs, so you’re likely to find something entirely different. This September the band will release their new LP, Marriage, via Deer Bear Wolf.
