The brainchild of Fayetteville, Arkansas native Todd Mattson, OR7F is the latest in a series of mounting solo projects, delving deep into the experimental nether regions of alternative rock and electronica. A defiant mashup of unique styles, the songs seem to rely on rock rhythms highlighted by grooving, funky keyboards which carry the melodies. Sporadic, yet well-timed samples provide accents throughout some of the tracks, especially during “Crossroads” and “Dancing with Intoxication.”
Something of a musical Rubik’s Cube, OR7F refuses to by confined to typical genres, allowing the listener some freedom to interpret and enjoy at their own pace. Breathe deeply from the creative energy spilling from the speakers – you just might discover something you love.
