"Picking up where he left off with 2008's Kai Kahola Leo, Beaks Plinth (Jared Blum, Blanketship, Vulcanus 68) once again unearths all that lives between the grooves of tattered vinyl. This time around a worn out stack of organ-based records slowed to a dragging 16 2/3 and 81/3 rpms of all genres; Easy, Church, Jazz, Ice Skating music and more become the focus of îrgano Saturado.

Inspired by Juan Torres' melting, mind-warp îrgano Mel—dica Vol. 11, Blum's music is a sweetly lethargic affair with a natural affinity for the distorted growl and dull shimmer of the 60's electric organ. Some of the tunes are nothing less than melodic masterpieces of the popular genre, where others simply exemplify the sound of the warped plastic's scratched and skipped,off kilter-sluggish heart."-Gigante Sound
