The Sound of Confusion named Mechanical Mouse Organ’s debut album, Get Over It, one of their top twenty albums of 2015, while Tasty Fanzine raved about
"Entwistle bass motifs and drumming as committed as Moon… lyrics worthy of Squeeze and a passionate vocal trembling like Fergal".
In the two years since its release, the band have been honing their sound and refining their songwriting chops. The fruits are batch of new songs and a
planned succession of e.p.'s.
All The Love (Nobody Wants) is the first of these and the progression is already evident. It packs a
deeper emotional punch than its predecessor and draws from a wider musical palette. On the title track, sparse verses propelled by a percussive Strat,
give way to a warm, fuzz-laden choruses, where Darryl Todd’s emotive vocal intones the hook, "if I don’t belong, what do I do with all the love
nobody wants". A heartfelt lament about yearning and rejection, shot through with warmth, overdrive and a
melodic strength that recall Dinosaur Jnr.
Where Are You Know starts as a laid back groove, built around a hypnotic guitar arpeggio and a falling bass figure. It kicks up a gear for the chorus
and up another, through a crunching guitar solo, to a climatic middle eight where Todd is given full reign over a crescendo of crashing cymbals,
power chords and plunging bass runs. Final track, Get Out of My Head, is upbeat and poppy, all Dr Robert style guitar riffs and cantering drums,
with a tongue-in-cheek vocal that harks back to their debut.

"a propulsive and ramshackle tune that is kitted out in all manner of fuzz and Big Star style melody. Cracking stuff"
- GM - The Crack - March 2018
"a sense of stop start motion from which an unexpectedly evocative and tender vocal laments of isolated rejection"
Tim - Emerging Indie Bands - March 2018
"Get Out Of My Head is a poppier, fast-paced delight that nods towards influences such as Hendrix and The Raconteurs.""
