Clayton Doley's Organ Donors: Tension! - Download on iTunes

Psych-soul debut from Australia’s leading instrumental combo!

Tension! - Clayton Doley's Organ Donors



Australia isn’t exactly famous for spawning authentic soul music, but that’s all about to change with the release of Tension!, the riveting debut album by Down Under’s leading instrumental combo, Clayton Doley’s Organ Donors. Tension! offers an exciting introduction to the foursome’s unique brand of instrumental R&B, igniting an unstoppable explosion of deep-grooved psychedelic-soul soundscapes that inspire comparisons with such vintage masters as Booker T. and the MGs, Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Smith while maintaining an unmistakably modern sensibility. Delivering bracing new music that taps into a timeless well of musical tradition, Tension! is perfectly timed to take advantage of the current resurgence of interest in vintage soul sounds.

In an impressively short period of time, Clayton Doley’s Organ Donors have become a potent force on the Australian scene, winning an enthusiastic fan base and abundant acclaim from critics and fellow musicians. Driven by seasoned keyboard virtuoso Doley’s mighty Hammond organ, the quartet’s dynamic range veers from quiet whispers to thunderous roars, with rapid-fire shedding turning to shimmering soundscapes of raw emotion. Joining organist/leader Doley is a handpicked set of players whose world-class musicianship elevates the keyboardist’s compositions to dizzying levels of interactive inspiration. Guitarist Jak Housden’s distinctive stylings balance funkiness and warmth, and his effortless chemistry with Doley’s keyboard work is complemented by the powerful, subtly inventive rhythm section of bassist James Haselwood and drummer Dave Hibbard.

One could be forgiven for mistaking Tension! for a rare vintage gem unearthed from the vaults of a long forgotten American R&B label, thanks to the musicians’ careful attention to sonic detail. The band cut the tracks live in the studio, using completely vintage instruments and recording gear. The emphasis on vintage technology extended to the use of such largely forgotten studio effects as spring reverb and tape flanging.
