Record of the Month: Odetta Hartman - "Old Rockhounds Never Die"

The music of Odetta Hartman is fueled by creation, no matter the outcome, and Old Rockhounds Never Die is a wellspring of genuine freak-folk experimentation. Spiraling banjos and country pianos could turn into short, tuneful folk ballads, or they succinctly end as sweet vignettes that playfully tinker with sound. This sophomore album proves that the way Hartman deconstructed home-spun atmosphere on her debut was more than just a phase; it’s a fully integrated accent in her music that unravels throughout each song. Field recordings of oceans and trains are malleably crafted, intertwining with the more “authentic” sounds to instill a trans-generational voice to her songwriting. The shorter instrumentals on Rockhounds often feel like ideas that could be bud into their own unique genres, blending hip-hop and noise, almost flaunting the number of potential ideas each song hides. This playfulness doesn’t attempt to hide the raw sentiment of Hartman’s lyrics; sorrow and rage and sensuality feel quite genuine against this idiosyncratic backdrop. Old Rockhounds Never Die finds reverie when it digs its talons into sonic territories that bleed together, and each composition is a grove of ideas begging to be explored. –Tucker Pennington





Frege releases sultry new single, "Stilfs" with accompanying music video

Mexico City bred and currently Brooklyn-based band, Frege, have create a very intriguing melange of sonic elements with their latest single, “Stilfs.” Released with a sultry accompanying music video, the track blends mellow, noir atmospheres with soulful vocals that satisfy our never-ending craving for catchy melodies. Unexpected sonic developments, like an accelerated chorus driven by an ingenious, fragmented drum pattern, or experimentation with electronic textures, keep things interesting throughout the song, without letting things get too "out there" to be thoroughly enjoyed. Following on the steps of avant-pop artists like Radiohead and Talk Talk, these guys aspire to provoke thought, and pull big sounds and even bigger concepts into each little groove of theirs. Listen to the single below, and check out Frege’s live session of their new track here. - Rebecca Carroll - photo credit: Maureen Evans
