Oddisee’s album “People Hear What They See” Is out June 12th via Mello Music Group!!
Last week, Oddisee dropped the amazing video for his remix of Marvin Gaye’s “Ain’t That Peculiar” in preparation of the full release of “Odd Renditions,” which also features remixes from Bon Iver, K-Os and Metronomy.
Today, enjoy the full EP download of “Odd Renditions,” which was premiered by the good folks at Stereogum and is something to hold you over till “People Hear What They See” is available in stores.
Skyrocketed by raw sincerity and a string of recent kingmaking appearances on Jimmy Fallon and the Colbert Report, the high-powered machine that is Justin Vernon’s Bon Iver shows no signs of letting up. Coming on the heels of For Emma, Forever Ago, the cabin-crafted monument to a dead dream, the band’s self-titled second full-length explores themes of isolation and longing under surging swells of dripping guitars and absorbing keys. While still yielding to the thousand yard stare mentality of its predecessor, the new album is a much warmer affair aurally if not content-wise.
Now that the six hipsters who hadn’t heard of James Blake before have gotten to know him via last week’s collaboration with Bon Iver, the electronic auteur has announced a new EP, Enough Thunder, to be released on Oct. 10 by the Atlas label. The release promises four new songs, along with the Bon Iver collab, “Fall Creek Choir Boys,” as well as his cover of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case Of You.”
First off, HA! Ha to that disingenuous explanation that this video isn’t misogynistic or anything. As if comparing women to bloodsucking monsters out to get you who are then hung and killed can just be taken as some flippant “art piece”. But that is neither here nor there, once again Nicky Minaj kills it. Can you say effort? I mean Rick Ross, Jay-Z and Kanye just stand there while Nicki completely “brings” it. Everyone in this set brought something! This reminds me of when my sister had her Quinceañera and all the guys were “too cool” to do anything besides standing there in sunglasses looking mad. Newsflash, that gets old. Honestly, I did like the video but let’s be real and take it for what it is.
