Oshe - The Good Book CD

I'm not sure if this New York-based band named themselves after the Yoruba god of thunder and lightning or the federal government's Office of Safety, Health, and Environment. I am sure, however, of the fact that both would be oddly appropriate. You see, this instrumental quartet is both full of thunder and lightning as well as a threat to your safety and health. Let me explain. The bass-heavy rhythms rumble and grumble, teased and tormented by trancelike keyboards, and held together by a stunning old school jazz sensibility. It is a backlit thunderstorm of music, the kind where the sky turns that odd shade of electric green, the kind that frightens and intrigues you. Also, like the lightning the storm produces, it's a threat to your health too. One, it will make you get up and move and exert yourself. Hell, I'm dancing now. Ever try and type while dancing? Not for the meek I assure you. Secondly it will trash your equilibrium. Channeling Miles Davis, David Gilmour and the more modern sounds of house electronic music, it spins, whirls, twirls and melts all around you, dripping up the walls, through the windows, under the floor, and over the ceiling. Try typing when the letters start melting. I dare you. Thirdly, Oshe's The Good Book will impress you so much, you'll go into Beatlemania mode. You will start screaming at the top of your lungs for no reason, fluttering your hands and crying. You'll be so overwhelmed that eventually you will collapse in a faint. Can you type when you're unconscious? I thought not. So there you have it. Oshe, The God Of Thunder and Health Hazards has arrived. They will amaze, frighten and over joy you. They will also make it extremely difficult to type but don't pay any attention to that. Just stand on your head, chew some gum to balance the air pressure, close your eyes and crank The Good Book. It doesn't get much better than that.

"The Good Book offers a tasteful glimpse into the multi-faceted sound of these groove-oriented youngsters and gives the listener a hint to why they've been packing rooms from New York to Burlington." -Chris Clark, Burlington's State of Mind Magazine

"The album is surprisingly focused for a live effort. All the tracks are well orchestrated showing a maturity beyond the member's years. The band makes every note count and at no point do they ever seem to meander in their compositions." -Matt Shapiro, Free-Lance Music Journalist
