It’s been over three years since Oddisee released an album (2017’s The Iceberg), but the DIY legend is officially back with his Odd Cure EP.
Recorded during a two week span while self-quarantining in his Bed-Stay studio after getting back from Thailand just days before the lockdown, the project was birthed from the conversations had within the studio as he inspected a constant flow of news, social media, word of mouth, misinformation, conspiracy theories, and statistics about the first weeks of the pandemic in Amerikkka.
“A record I didn’t want to write but needed to,” Oddisee says.
Equipped with 11 tracks (six songs, five skits), the EP includes contributions from Olivier St. Louis, Sainte Ezekial, Priya Ragu, and Ralph Real (who appears on “No Skips,” which got the visual treatment, above).
