Beat Review

The fact that it’s important to differentiate between needs and wants is symptomatic of our contemporary affluent existence. In pre-industrial times of yore, the average person needed food, shelter and clothing to survive; the religious instruction against coveting thy neighbour’s possessions quarantined gratuitous want to an envious minority.
Yet it’s another paradox of the capitalist system that at a time when so many covet unnecessary consumer goods, a disturbing proportion of the population continue to need basic items to exist.
There’s another perspective on that same human construct, and one which is closer to the heart of the title track to Speed Orange’s new album, We All Get Exactly What We’re Asking For – namely, that the modern obsession with personal effects and PR-buff ed political discourse has as its natural karmic consequence a society that eschews spiritual substance in favour of cheap entertainment.
But We All Get Exactly What We’re Asking For isn’t an indulgent philosophical treatise; it is, however, a rich and eclectic collection of tracks that span the spectrum of rock, pop and folk genres. I Am The Devil They Call Love is a classic rock ‘n’ roll lament injected with the purified essence of power pop, She Killed Me In My Sleep paints the contrasting sides of love – enlivening and deadening – into a potent folk rock collage, while The Ballad Of You, Me And Donnie McGee (featuring vocals from Monique Brumby) is a bruising and boozing maritime call-and-response tale of love gone wrong.
Right on cue, Speed Orange loads up the fuel and burns straight into the suburban dragster rock of Playing To The Dead, while the Serpent Song is melancholic and dark, its vivid narrative edge complimented by the Nick Cave-like emotional edge. On Funeral Pyre the piano run suggests a stumble down the steps into deeper psychological chaos, while Mighty Horse is heavy with emotional pain and the harsh reality of life.
On Just Can’t Be Happy Today Speed Orange lurches down the road paved by Pink Floyd on Dark Side Of The Moon; out of the clutches of depression, Dirty Love comes out fighting like The Triffids looking for a blue in an obnoxious country pub.
Seeing Amy returns to the weighty melancholic tone before The Virgin Of Guadalupe provides a raucous rock ‘n’ roll finale to Speed Orange’s rich musical journey.
We All Get Exactly What We’re Asking For is, like life itself, a series of light, dark and heavy moments. In many ways we all do get exactly what we ask for – and if you’re asking for some good music, you should get this record.
