Odd Nosdam Burner
This Odd Nosdam album is weirdly Enya-esque and at the same time totally fucking good — full of sleepy hip-hop beats and hypnotic analog keyboards, although there’s a bit much ambient field recordings between the “songs” for my taste. Why’s Sanddollars EP is too unusual and intricate to brush off as a novelty record. Nasal vocals, concert hall grand pianos and guitar rock songs about the joys of staying up all night tagging. Both albums utilize dreamy production that seem to typify the multi-faceted, multi-tiered umbrella of Anticon projects.
