Back to the Past

Transporting me, I found Odd Common's Back to the Past EP a fun listen. Well and crisply recorded, the analog tones pulse in mechanical time, haunted by vocorder vocals. I welcomed the variation and change in the compositions, as they bounced through the sequences. Very tight, as one would expect from this type of electronica, much of it was nostalgic, recalling synth greats of the past.

I'd recommend this to anyone, as I would for most of Odd Common's work, which is eclectic and varied. It is always filled with analog synth and fun sequences, and is often danceable.  Big arrangements from modest means.
