Josh Reichmann's first band, Tangiers, brought a Rock/Post-Punk sound that began a trail of critical acclaim with their first release Hot New Spirits and spread over two more records (Never Bring You Pleasure and The Family Myth 2005). Tangiers caught the attention of indie rock fans across Canada and the US, and earned rave reviews from such notable sources as Pitchfork Media.
Josh returns to music with an entirely new line up of collaborators, now gathering from a pool of Soul, early-Funk, Roots and dark Punk influences. Josh Reichmann Oracle Band is a five piece band incorporating heavy saxophone, Stevie Wonder-meets-The Stooges keyboards, Soul-style drumming, a live dancer, thick roots bass and Josh as the main songwriter and front man.
All of these pieces have been filtered through Josh's unique production fingerprint to offer a first recorded glimpse of the band with the Life Is Legal EP (Paper Bag Records). It's a recording that aptly displays the ground that Josh has covered in recent years.
