So I recently got back from a trip and had the pleasure of having Oddisee's newest release, Traveling Man, in my iPod. All I can say is this is one of the most creative and audibly stunning instrumental projects I have ever listened to or even heard about.
Here are some details:
As a musician, life is often lived on the road. Each city leaves its imprint on the artist as they develop their craft. For Oddisee, the producer and MC brainchild behind 2009's critically acclaimed Diamond District, the life and travels of the artist is no mystery. Touring, recording, and keeping up with friends and family took Oddisee beyond his hometown of Washington DC to Australia, Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America. Rather than keep these experiences to himself, Oddisee is instead releasing a new 24-track instrumental album, sharing his worldly experiences – through music, directly with his fans; a 24 city sonic tour of the world. With this new release, Oddisee is the Traveling Man...Each track was produced while Oddisee stayed in the city it was titled after...No need for a passport because Oddisee sees the world, so that you can hear it. Listen up.Peep 3 of the gems on this amazing project:
The album is available now on iTunes and you should do everything in your power to go purchase it immediately.
