This Just In: Sisters

Hey beat heads! Are you paying attention to Leaving Records? They’ve been releasing some of the most solid electronic/hip-hop/beat-infused material on every freaking format (like really, VHS too) since 2010. We’ve got a bunch of their stuff in the shop, and one of my new favorites (from and all-time favorite producer) is Odd Nosdam’s Sisters. Nosdam is well-known for atmospheric rhythms and vocal samples/cut-ups that he’s been slowly dropping since the late 90’s. He’s released titles on Mush, Anticon, and most recently, Leaving. Sisters features his unmistakable style, a collaboration with Teebs, and even a freakin’ Boards Of Canada remix – YASS! Listen to a track and read more about the album below. Sorry – the VHS is sold out 😉

We’ve also got a spring-fresh in-stock list with all sorts of other beats and non-beats, and even a brand new BEAT MACHINE COLORING BOOK. -MLE

Odd Nosdam – Sisters LP
Listen: “Burrow”
“Odd Nosdam makes his second appearance on Leaving Records and greets 2016 with Sisters. Throughout, Nosdam splits his time between cosmic, slow burning beats and reflective soundscapes littered with intriguing textures and mind bending samples. Analogue sounds are generous and knowingly manipulated. Gorgeous samples are deployed, sturdy yet emotional. Cymbals explode.

Already a long revered figure in underground beats, in the last several years Odd Nosdam has been able to test his new productions on the world class sound system of Low End Theory. Much of Sisters was inspired by those room shaking sonics, so it is fitting that kindred spirit Teebs makes an appearance here in a dreamy collaboration. Although Sisters contains plenty of absolute bangers, its quieter moments also stun with their hypnotic beauty.

Nosdam writes of the inspiration for the title track, ‘when the sun finally breaks through on an overcast day, Sisters was very much inspired by that wonderful moment… and the longing for it.’” -Leaving Records
