Oranger - New Comes and Goes Review
by Eric Bodrero

Oranger is an indie garage band quintet from the Bay area that has supported such acts as REM, Pavement, Elliot Smith, and Apples in Stereo, and has carved out quite a name for themselves in the indie scene. On their fourth full length New Comes and Goes, Oranger set out to make an album opposite of their last, and in some ways have succeeded at that, first and foremost by recording the album in about ten days.

The first half of this album is relatively unique, with nifty keyboard work, nice bass hooks, and some pretty cool songwriting. Most tracks are pure guitar-filled rock and roll jams, but some have a more mellow approach. However, the second half of this record gets a little repetitive by relying on the same beats and melodies, and runs out of musical steam. However, as a whole, the album flows well and has nice production to it, and most indie fans should get some minor thrills out of it. For fans of Fountains of Wayne, Pavement, Preston School of Industry, and pretty much any other indie band that sounds like those bands, which are quite a few.
