Organelle drives in and out of a polar spectrum: the shadowed, looping post-industrial grit of Treevolt and the more luminous, organic left field of Woodrough. The area between these aesthetic pillars makes each juncture that much more unique. The ebbs and flows somehow follow a natural trajectory despite being far from predictable making for 34 dense minutes that never overstay their welcome. The staple dissonant riffs, busy perc, and tasteful bridges all remain intact, but in evolution from Octobird’s last, Baikonur, Organelle seems to retain and build with a more concretely directed pace driving each listen through a more diverse myriad of textures and seemingly very real places yet all with an oddly particular fidelity that suggests some weird sense of omnipotent control.
