Meaty Ogre Leo vs. Pisces
- Words: DJ Anna
- Label: Galapagos4
From the wailing harmonica stains and distorted guitar solo of "Leo Prowls" to the melancholy keyboards of "5:00 A.M. Shadows," Chicago underground producer Meaty Ogre creates slow suspenseful instrumental pieces with a decidedly psychedelic side to them. His debut LP, Leo vs. Pisces, is an ode to astrology that is half instrumental and half lyrical, featuring the full roster of emcees from Mr. Ogre's Galapagos4 label. The vocal tracks range from stunning ("Descending Son" featuring Denizen Kane) to passable ("Long Dirty Word" featuring Rift Napalm), but the beats are always exquisite. Meaty Ogre is equally as comfortable without any wordsmiths-hen left to his own devices, he makes beautiful music with a soulful edge.
