ODAWAS Plots West Coast Tour, Talks Shop With MOKB and Premieres Video For Harmless Lovers DiscoursePosted: April 5th, 2009 by Andrew Stevens
Very patiently, ODAWAS’ ethereal and sexy The Blue Depths has been winning over a good many serious fans of music. As Odawas plots several live dates up and down the West Coast, some influential music sites have recently been singing the praises of the San Francisco duo.
First, My Old Kentucky Blog’s John Moulder did an in-depth interview with Odawas’ Michael Tapscott and Isaac Edwards, who discuss their mutual love for film scores and Phil Collins. Introducing the band, Moulder wrote that with the release of The Blue Depths, Odawas “have given us yet another subtle masterpiece that’s as creepy as it is beautiful. Full disclosure warning: it’s the best record I’ve heard that’s been released this year.” Read the full interview HERE.
And last week, our good friends at Stereogum premiered the video for “Harmless Lovers Discourse,” which Stereogum called “the set’s signature piece, pathos and nostalgia deep in Michael Tapscott’s voice as he sings “this could be the last day on earth,” bottling up a Big Moment in a touching four-minute pop elegy.” See the video produced by the team at Elephant below.
