One Ring Zero - Wake Them Up CD

O.R.Z. are the duo of Michael Hearst and Joshua Camp, who between them play; accordion, theremin, claviola, guitar, banjo, organ, piano, keyboards, bass, drums, percussion. Their sound is definitely comparable to Hamster Theatre - mostly short little pieces filled with billions of melodies, although unlike Hamster, there's a more emphasis on '50's lounge stylings' as well as on songs and lyrics. "With songs about Siamese twins, marching mannequins, and decrepit trailer parks, One Ring Zero continues to embrace its Fellini-esque-lit-rock reputation with crafty lyrics and odd-ball instruments. One Ring Zero is Michael Hearst and Joshua Camp. The Brooklyn-based duo has released five CDs, including their critically acclaimed album, As Smart As We Are, a book-cum-CD, featuring songs with lyrics contributed by such authors as Jonathan Lethem, Margaret Atwood, Paul Auster, Dave Eggers, A.M. Homes, Rick Moody, Neil Gaiman, and Denis Johnson. The music has been featured in dance concerts, films and animations, fashion shows, and NPR programming including This American Life, Fresh Air, and The Next Big Thing."
