CD Review: Young Orchids — Afterglow; Playing Star Bar on March 25 with J Roddy Walston & The Business

Young Orchids
Afterglow
RoadOasis Recordings

By Eileen Tilson

Did you know that “Orchid” comes from the Greek “órkhis,” literally meaning “testicle”? Some clever male (obviously) decided to name one of the most unique flowers after their own special part. This makes it even more ironic, that one of Atlanta’s most beloved, high energy bands, is named the Young Orchids. A bunch of little “flowers.” At least with these orchids though, they have reached puberty, and are proving that with the release of their debut LP Afterglow. Produced, mixed and engineered by Kris Sampson (Dead Confederate, All the Saints), the album is being released on their own RoadOasis Recordings imprint. The album is a collection of 11 songs true to the sound that makes them one of the coolest bands in Little Five Points.

Miniature Tigers
Fortress
Modern Art/LG

By Eileen Tilson

Once upon a time there was a woman who ate her very first pot brownie. This “space cake” as she so cleverly called it, took about 45 minutes to effect her, starting at her tingling toes, and riding her blood waves, until her entire body felt like it was in slow motion. Everything was funny, everything was mellow, and for a brief period of time, everything seemed right in the world. This same orbit can be felt by listening to Brooklyn-via-Phoenix band Miniature Tigers’ latest album Fortress. The record is produced by Morning Benders’ Chris Chu, who brings a certain je ne sais quoi to the project through his eclectic use of echo bits, snappy snare, and twinkling synth effects. This is the lovechild of the Monkeys and the Beach Boys growing up in the Heart of Hipster Cool, Williamsburg.
