Standard Edition Black Double Vinyl.
Odd Nosdam came to prominence as beat-smith with experimental hip-hoppers, cLOUDDEAD, as well as being co-founder of the Anticon label.A string of critically lauded solo releases culminated in 2016s 'Sisters' LP (title track remixed by Boards of Canada) and this years 'Mirrors' LP which saw the West Coast producer at the peak of his powers. A massive 66 tracks over 4 sides of wax!! Digging fathoms deep in the crates, his source material comes from super rare records that you've never heard of, many of them private pressings. From plaintive deep soul cuts, gritty chitlin' circuit funk, bluesey 60s garage band sessions, through to some seriously heavy psych-rock freakouts and all manner of wierdness in between, the scope of this record is mind bending. But it doesn't stop there, mashed up into this heady brew you'll also pick up hints of gospel, jazz, dub and spacey west coast acid. And the whole thing is neatly stitched together with snatches of film dialogue providing the narrative thread. So many disparate influences could make for an unfocussed, smorgasbord of a record but Nosdam has honed his skills over the years to such a degree that these 66 tracks, 80 mins in total, have been sculpted and shaped with rapier precision into a work that is as lithe and supple as it is kaleidoscopic and exhilarating. In a word, breathtaking.
