A tango is all about moving smoothly as one with your partner. Orion Tango's tango is all about doing the same thing
between minds and instruments. The newest project from Philadelphia's genre-defying 1k Recordings label consists of
guitarist Tim Motzer, bassist Barry Meehan and drummer Jeremy Carlstedt: a team of premier musicians who've played
together in various settings in the past, but never in this trio configuration before. Their self-titled debut shows both the
familiarity of longtime collaborators and the eagerness of a fresh outfit just discovering what it can do.
Drawing on the experimental spirit of Krautrock as much as the deep rhythmic stew of urban dub, offering infectious power-
rock grooves and occasional noise on the edge of chaos, Orion Tango is a thick slice of heavy power-trio improv as this crew
does it best
