The duo Aurganic is threatening to get in your ear, and if their latest release is any indication, they’re going to be creating quite the buzz.

Deviations melds their earlier influences in various genres, particularly punk, alt rock and jazz, as the duo layer their sound with guest vocals from a few singers – Joel Goguen, Scott Carruthers, and Jessica Stuart. Standout tracks include tracks ‘The Lost and Found’ and ‘Paradigm’. Another song that will keep listeners aurally engaged is ‘Easy’, which takes Stuart’s cool soul and jazz vocals and places them over electric instrumentals. The lead-off single off this sophomore album, ‘Choices’, features the vocals of Joel Goguen weaving his way through dub step and electronica. The accompanying video to the song plays on the philosophy of how our choices end up dictating our lives. Even with the addition of guest vocalists, it cannot be denied that the songwriting and production values on this latest CD are well worth a listen.



Although they’ve come a long way since walking the halls of the same high school, it is easy to see that their divergent paths came back together in just the right measurements of musicality. Since 2010, Leo Pisaq and Michael Kossov have been creating music together that cultivates a new experimental sound that complements all of their musical talents. Through a shared love of composition and songwriting, this duo have united together years later to produce a sound that merges electronica, alt rock and jazz – this follow-up to the well received Life as a Canvas in 2012. They have continued on their musical journey on this latest album and the result is something that cannot be pigeonholed into any one genre and that is ultimately by design. Fans interested in something a bit left of the middle will ultimately enjoy this collection of collaborations.
