Ozarks - As I Lay Sleeping / 'Til I Die EP

Ozarks are from Portland, OR and they play some really enjoyable baroque sounding pop music. But with the visuals like videos and album art, it gets mind boggling.
They are playing with some sort of romantic vampire themes (in the As I Lay Sleeping video) and at the same time they invoke a weird image of a men (Pyramids of Love). A guy with moustach, porn glasses, turtleneck sweater. A softie who's maybe still living with his mom, interested in chess, mathematics and motorcycles.
I don't know - that's what swapping up, when I see all this.
And it's consistent in the realisation of these characters.

So, beside the self titled full album, there is this free EP of As I lay Sleeping, a beautiful laid back song, with a slow pounding bassline and elements from an Elton John song from the eighties, which makes it much better - because Elton John know how to write music. Not necessarily good music, but remindable music. And Ozarks are writing good music, but it's not so remindable on the flip side.

Wait! I remember listening for the first time Nirvana - Black Flower (the sixties psych band) and it was really weird, the neo-classical compositions - and I feel the same strangeness for Ozark's music, but in a very good way.

You can order the self titled  album as vinyl over Wil Ru Records or get the free EP as download.

All songs written by Robbie Augspurger.
Recorded by Robbie Augspurger & Eric Lee.
