Soundscape’, Oddplay’s latest album release, maintains the high standard of quality exhibited by the band’s previous work. The band continues to evolve its signature sound, blending smooth guitar and bass rhythms with rawer, heavier riffs interspersed. Standout tracks, such as the oddly named but exquisitely produced, ‘Sad cat eating wet bread’, or ‘Voyage’, ‘Soared Mind’ and the darker ‘Pauper’s Grove’ are but the cherry on top for a release that is chalk full of unique and enchanting performances. Fans of psychedelic stoner rock and connoisseurs of instrumental music will find much to love in ‘Soundscape’, which, as the band’s two other albums, remains a collaboration between only two individuals, whose love for the music they create pours out from every riff and melody on the album. ‘Soundscape’ is a product of talent and deep affection for the music and any true fan of quality will be quick to realise the album’s inherent virtues. As with any Oddplay release, the question isn’t whether you should give it a listen, but why is it so hard to put down after you’ve hit the (Odd) ‘Play’ button.
