Odawas’ Michael James Tapscott Releases New Record

Good morning friends! We’ve got a bit of a special treat to start off your Tuesday or maybe act as a soundtrack to what currently seems to be a monsoon outside. Odawas founder, Michael James Tapscott, releases his ninth album on Bookmaker Records. “Good Morning, Africa Working alternates captivating ballads and dark instrumental tracks. The result is a deep mix of folk songwriting, psychedelism and new age.” It features Andrew Kenower, who contributed some very interesting field recordings to the album. The first vinyl edition for Bookmaker (how neat!), you can stream and pre-order the album HERE.

Odawas’ Michael Tapscott Releases ‘Challenger’ Cassette on Digitalis Industries

Odawas’ Michael James Tapscott has a new, limited edition cassette called Challenger available now through Digitalis Industries. A collaboration with old friend and poet Andrew Kenower who provides some field recordings he made in Holland, the piece contains sonic thoughts and visions from NASA’s The Challenger disaster of 1986 and the human error that caused it. Much of the vision was provided by Chapter 2 from Edward Tufte’s Visual Explanations. We’ve given this a suck a spin and it’s actually a lovely, deep listen.

Order Challenger now HERE.
