[GET DOWN ON IT] For Los Angeles funkateers Orgone, being a solid backing band has always meant vocals are optional. The band’s soulful discography combines the best elements of ’70s funk, acid jazz, Afrobeat and rock, harnessing buzzing synths and tight horns alongside Mothership-infused licks that not only beguile but demand listeners take to the groove. The octet’s most recent EP, New You, Part I, isn’t a radical departure from its 2007 instrumental debut—aside from the three lead vocalists, including touring diva Fanny Franklin—but it’s still got the shuffling beats, piercing flute solos and general Meters swagger that make you wonder how the band hasn’t wound up on the retro-leaning Daptone Records.
