Some band names simply completely seize what the band goes to sound like, and Odd Circus is certainly one of them. The Orlando-based avant-rock trio is made up of a guitarist/bassist/drummer, a bassist/drummer, and a saxophonist, and — in their very own (extraordinarily correct) phrases — they make a mix of post-rock, fusion, no wave, noise, experimental, storage rock, psychedelic, and sci-fi prog. It is the sort of factor that followers of Zappa, Mike Patton, Cardiacs, The Residents, and so on are gonna eat up, and like all of these artists, Odd Circus actually earn the suitable to be as bizarre as potential. It isn’t that the music is not self-indulgent, it is simply that they make self-indulgence sound actually fucking superior.
The trio launched their debut LP Lunatic Children in 2019, adopted by a mixtape in 2020, and now they’re set to launch their new EP Mantha this Friday (4/2) through their very own Good Thought Music (pre-order). It isn’t formally out for a pair days, however you may journey out to it proper now. A full stream premieres right here:
