Esopus CD #22: Organs

22_58.jpg

“Usually you just think about big, beefy organs, like lungs and stomachs and kidneys. But the pituitary gland, known as ‘the master gland,’ is this tiny little organ doing so much work—regulating everything from the function of other organs to growth hormones and blood pressure. It’s like the guy at work who does everything but gets no credit, or the water boy at a football game.”—Frank LoCrasto

For its 22nd audio compilation, Esopus invited 10 musical acts to create new songs inspired by the bodily organ of their choice. Selections ranged from "superstar" body parts like the ear, eye, and liver to little-known organs such as the pineal gland.
