Following Weaves was another pick from the Buzz Records stable, Odonis Odonis.
Although they played without the projections usually supplied by band leader Dean Tzenos, it’s not exactly as if the audiences at Odonis Odonis gigs are starved for stimulation in the first place. If the collided influences of post-punk, shoegaze, surf, and industrial aren’t enough for you to wrap your head around at a live Odonis Odonis gig, there’s always the thick and sludgy layer of fuzz it’s all filtered through— albeit this time that grime was more like a Vaseline smear, and not to the performance’s detriment.
The band used the opportunity to play through some of the picks from their forthcoming follow-up to 2011’s Hollandaze LP, Hard Boiled, Soft Boiled (due April 15), and if the production quality of this gig should serve as any indication of what that might sound like, it’s going to be a hell of a release.
